Day 53 Espanola > near Sudbury

Saturday - Michele's last day. I left early so Michele could shower and moisturize. In fact it took three hours to complete this ritual.

Day 51 Sault Saint Marie > Algoma Mills

Thursday> the sun was out and your absolutely right Netty- what a difference a day makes! Picked the bike up and road through town. A guy on a mountain bike stopped me to admire my bike then proposed to me telling me he thought I was pretty - it was then I realized he must take drugs!

Day 49 Munising > Sault Saint Marie

Sunday > headed along the highway and after a short while I saw a large turtle on the road side. Michele was overcome with a animal rescue plan but as the turtle was basically inbetween the road and the traintracks I do think his days were numbered. He was huge as you will see once I get these next photos online.

Day 48 Sand River > Munising

Saturday > we peddled away along the shore of Lake Superior. Stopping to take in the fabulous views in every cove. Lunched in the pretty town of Munising and continued on the more remote stretch towards Newberry until the kids picked us up after just over 100 km.

Day 47 Champion > Sand River

Friday > Left Charlotte and Jim fishing and headed out climbed for the first 40km. We have seen numerous deer all along the route but today was my first bear sighting. It loped along the other side of the road and was quite large but seriously not interested in the traffic on the road.

Day 44 Ashland > Ironwood Michigan

Tuesday > Had breakfast watching a passing rain storm - today would be a shower dodging day for sure. Michele ordered a small breakfast of two eggs and a loaf of bread. She was still peckish so polished off a pancake slab trying all three sauces - Bo Derek - maybe not!
