We had excellent weather as we circled Lake Superior and headed home.

Roads were good and traffic wasn't heavy. We did encounter road construction from time to time but that's to be expected as summer is the only time it's warm enough to lay down fresh asphalt.

The beach at Pancake Bay was perfect for long walks ....

or just sitting enjoying a cup of tea in the evening.

Saw a few cyclists who were biking across Canada. Even gave one a ride when we were all stranded at Iron Bridge because of a fatal accident. The road was closed for six hours then only open one lane at a time.

 After waiting for an hour we decided to take the detour and headed across some back roads to Elliott Lake then back down to 17.

We were on a gravel road with lots of impatient drivers travelling too fast and throwing stones as they passed. It was a bouncy ride but the trailer did well and very few items got shifted around.

We did pickup a cyclist from Vancouver who was headed to Montreal. We gave him supper in Elliott Lake then dropped him off in Smith Falls. He still had a long way to go and only a week to get there.

Now it's time to check out the gardens and trim back the brush that has grown so much since we left.

It was a wonderful trip and we are so glad to have had some time with family and friends along the way.

Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.
