    TBay to Tyndall

    July 3, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Day three and one more long 8 plus hour drive with a few stops along the way. There are not nearly as many places to pull off or sightseeing opportunities between Thunder Bay and the area in Manitoba where I spent three first 15 years of my life. 

    We did, however, manage to find a wee hidden waterfall just off the highway and then a really good bbq joint in the middle of nowhere (which aptly describes most of where we was today). We went for the  smoked brisket on a bun Carolina style (with slaw) and fries.

    Then one more stop just this side of the Ontario/Manitoba border in Kenora because there is a brewery there. These types of detours have become staples in our travelogues. Our typical experience involves sharing a flight of beer and then visiting the bottle shop ro choose a growler, howler or cans to take home. 

    The last leg of this day's tour took us along a particularly windy 2 lane highway with a posted speed limit of 90 km/he, but I could tell from April's body language I should not accelerate beyond 80. Her fears were grounded in having a deer or moose cross our path; a confrontation we would not likely win. I should point out to date we have seen 3 black bears, 2 deer, one moose and about 17000 crows. 

    As we approached one of the small towns I grew up in deja vu and nostalgia took hold. We'll be here a couple of days so I'll save my tales from the wayback machine. For now we need to close our eyes and recharge.

    April 18, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Die Nacht verbrachte ich direkt am See auf einen gemütlichen Picknick Platz und konnte einen wunderschönen Sonnenaufgang genießen. Danach machte ich mich wieder auf den Rückweg nach Winnipeg, um wieder auf den Trans Canada Highway zu gelangen, welcher mich schließlich in die nächste Provinz, Ontario führen sollte. In knapp 2 Wochen habe ich es gerade mal in die Mitte dieses rießiegen Landes geschafft. Natürlich würde es ohne Zwischenstopps nicht solange dauern, aber ich bin ja nicht in Eile. Kurz vor der Grenze von Manitoba und Ontario war es sehr interessant zu sehen, wie sich die Prärie doch langsam in Wälder, Felsen und Seen verwandelt hat. Dieses Land ist so abwechslungsreich, wenn man es nicht selbst erlebt hat, kann man das gar nicht glauben.Read more
