Day 40 - 17th July, 2011 Rossport, Ontario to Marathon, Ontario
Fog rolled in last night and was still heavy when we woke up this morning. It had lifted enough by 9:42 a.m. and I set off. It was a chilly 15 degrees. Lots of hills to negotiate but by the time I got to Schreiber, the fog had lifted and the temperature was up to the mid 20's. Sometimes as I am peddling along, my thoughts wander, lately to the book I am reading (Half Broke Horses). I was also thinking about pancakes....dripping with syrup. Moving on to Terrace Bay, I noticed the fog rolling in and folding over the trees and on to the road. With it came a chilling wind. I arrived at Terrace Bay at 11:40 a.m. and we decided to stop for an early lunch at the Red Dog Inn. Guess what I had for lunch! Yep, dripping in syrup! By 12:35 p.m. I was heading to Marathon. The fog gradually lifted and the temperatures shot up again. What a day...jacket on/jacket off! We are camped at the Neys Lunch and Campground. Total today 87 km. Total Trip to Date 3335 km.
