Day 7: Fri, June 19: Kenora to Thunder Bay ON

What a great day of riding! Not much traffic, plenty of passing lanes when there was and enough twisties to make it fun for all of us :-) Ed led and set a perfect pace for all of us - Happy, happy, happy. :-)

Lots of lovely forest and pretty little lakes and ponds along the way; Ed and Anneke spotted a few deer along the way too. I was disappointed not to spot 'em - I'd like to see how they differ from our western deer.

We left Kenora about 8:30 a.m., the weather was humid and a fella told us there was a storm brewing in the east (the direction we were going of course). It seemed so nice I wasn't too concerned, but eventually the rain did catch up with us -- but intermittently and luckily, not for long on any given occasion. So that was all good. It just got a bit cold and misty as we were on the home stretch into Thunder Bay.

We made a few stops along the way, mostly just for fuel for the bikes or fuel for us (!) We had our breaky at Vermilion Lake and a light lunch at Uppsala. Anneke has turned out to be our good luck charm -- just as we were dismounting at Vermilion, a dirty ol' bird pooped on her head! Which of course, as I told her, means you will be blessed with good luck! (I don't think she believed me though -- imagine that!)

Arrived here about 6:30 p.m.; never did hook up with the Ladies of Harley, but hopefully will cross paths with them tomorrow before we head off for Wawa. Dinner at Montana's preceded of course, by our ritual Corona and lime (we have decided this is now the official Canuck Chicks Conga libation ;-), so bewarned Conga'ers! LOL

Pleasantly tired tonight -- ready to hit the hay pronto. Night All!
