Day 28, July 1: Dryden to Ignace, ON – Happy Canada Day!

I want to wish everybody a Happy Canada Day.  I have always been proud to be a Canadian, but now after seeing our way through 4 provinces and being back in our home province, celebrating Canada Day has even more meaning.  This is an amazing country, so diverse, so friendly and full of adventure.  Oh Canada, my home and native land!  … and as depicted well in the photo, I had no understanding of the wind that blows strong throughout our land.

We celebrated today by arriving in good time to Ignace, with the help of a nice trailing  wind at our backs from start to finish. We are set up in a park on the east side of this little town with a population of 1300.  Situated on Davy Lake, there is not a chance of a swim today as it is cold here, only 10 degrees.  Instead of a swim, we are enjoying our afternoon watching world cup soccer in our home away from home with our furnace providing some welcomed warmth.  Perhaps a little too warm for the two Bills as I caught them both snoozing!

Day28IgnaceWe are looking forward to a special Canada Day dinner out tonight, either at a burger spot or at the Esso eatery.  There is not a lot of choice but we are not too picky, and will enjoy ourselves having a night out.

This photo of the Otter carries a lot of significance to a town like this as it served the community in many different ways, especially in emergencies.

Cheers Sid and team!!
