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.
