Entry Island - ile d'Entrée

A tiny, picturesque island, where cows and wild horses wander around the houses. 

Situated in the Magdalen Islands Archipelago, Entry Island is the only inhabited island not connected to the rest of the island chain, so it is only reachable by ferryboat.

The animals are free to wander everywhere. People prefer to build fences around their houses to protect themselves rather than fence the animals in.
