The weather today for the most part was absolutely glorious.  All our riding hours today were under blue skies and big fluffy clouds.  Not having as much ground to cover today we really took our time.  Our first stop was a Terry Fox memorial.  God Bless him — he walked 3,339 km from St. John’s Newfoundland to just outside of Thunder Bay when he found out cancer had spread to his lungs.  The touching memorial overlooks Lake Superior which is breath taking and ENORMOUS !!!

Our next stop was breakfast at the Husky Restaurant in Nipigon.  I’ve been craving pancakes for a few days now.  Our server comes to the table and stares at Chris and he stares back at her.  Nobody’s saying anything so I pipe up, “do you two know each other” and they both realize it at the same time.  Shawna owned a hair salon in Port Hardy and cut Chris’s hair when he was working up there.  Of all the places we could have stopped for breakfast.  What an incredible coincidence. We had a lovely chat and it was hugs all around when we left.


Taking a drive through Nipigon we came across the most unusual yard.  Oh my…I wonder what the story is with all those ornaments?  Must be challenging to cut the grass.  And what do the neighbours think?

The scenery in Northern Ontario reminds us of home.  Lush green landscape, rocky cliffs and lots of water.  Beautiful !!


Happy Canada Day everyone !!  How many Canadian flags can you spot in today’s pictures?  We missed celebrating this year and we found out that in a small town like Marathon almost everything is closed on a stat holiday.  Thanks to Pizza Hut for being open today and delivering to the b&b.  It saved us having to go out again after a short but fierce wind & rain storm.  Tonight we’re very comfortable in our room at Lakeview Manor B&B.  And appreciative to our host Dan for allowing us to wash the road grime off the bike & trailer.


Tomorrow we’re off to Sault Ste. Marie and I am jumping up and down excited about seeing some familiar faces.  We met Dolores when she worked as a justice of the peace as well as working admin at the Ministry of Forests office in Port McNeill.  She’s one of those people that makes me laugh until I cry and it’s been many years since we’ve seen each other.  Look out Sault Ste. Marie the noise level is about to go wayyyyyyy up !!


Happy Canada Day wherever you are today !!  Love & hugs from the road…
