1. Blind River
Frozen Lake Huron.
They have this stupid windmill located on the lake shore. Of all the times we’ve been here, not once, have we ever seen it working. Ever.
2. Katherine Cove
Frozen Lake Superior. Junior sees two Great Lakes in one day.
A Mom with her kids was on the beach. Her five year old son wanted a photo of his toy with Junior. It was some kind of dragon that spat our a plastic flame, from a McDonalds Happy Meal.
I asked the kid what the toys’ name was. He said it didn’t have one.
I suggested “Clem”, but the kid shook his head “No”.
Then I suggested THUN-DAR and he agreed.
So here is Junior with THUN-DAR.
3. Old Woman Bay
This is last view of the lake you get from the highway, until you get to Marathon, another 200 km further down the road.
4. Pebble Beach, Marathon
Of course there’s a sign telling you not take any rocks with you.
There is absolutely nothing here except some houses Not even so much as a convenience store.
6 Thunder Bay
This was the furthest west we could reasonably go for the weekend, and still get back to work on time for Monday
It was the first town with traffic lights since we left Sault St. Marie.
7. Terry Fox Memorial, Thunder Bay
He ran the equivalent of a Marathon every day, from St. Johns Newfoundland to here.
This is the only thing the town had going for it: a giant snowman.
Junior was pleased that he was sitting in the “BEAR” letters”.
Sunday morning, at 11:00 AM.
This was one of the “bigger” towns in the area. So we tried to find a single restaurant that was open. With no success.
Where do people here go to eat? There wasn’t even a truck stop.
Big Critters. Junior made some friends.
Since Thunder Bay, this was the longest stretch of paved road (500 km) we have ever seen without a single McDonalds or Tim Hortons.
There was also the biggest log pile we have ever seen.
Everything is always better, when you got UFO’s.
12. Giant Polar Bear
In downtown Cochrane.
Please note: DO NOT CLIMB.
13. 49th Parallel
This is just about the saddest road-side attraction I have ever seen.
14 Giant Bison
His name is apparently “Earl”. Maybe being next to Earlton has something to do with it.
All in all, we drove more ~ 2700 km.
If this had been the UK, we’d have driven a big chunk of the entire country.
