Ontario Farmlands

Port Royal to St Thomas

We slept in at our little farmhouse but we got going and actually left earlier than we usually do. It was overcast and cool. Wonderful cycling.

We passed all sorts of crops today all day. Very pretty, very green and very healthy looking.

We stopped in Port Burwell for some groceries and a cup of coffee and visits from the locals. It was fun.

On the way out of town I spotted this submarine sitting on the side of the road!? Did Canada make subs?

Oh No! We stood looking at the only crossing when a pick up truck stopped and told us to follow him

He showed us a temporary bridge that crossed the river and we stopped on the other side of the closed bridge. A worker told me there was a dump truck on the bridge when it collapsed and there was a special on the Discovery Channel showing how they got the truck out!

The corn looks like it has made it to knee high by the 4th of July!

Our host kitty for tonight! Gina is off to town for awhile. We took showers, did a load of laundry and now the journal. My Anker external phone battery didn't work this morning so I just ordered a new one. I can't be without battery back up! It has been flawless up to now. Maybe these back up batteries only last five months when being used every day???
