White River to Wawa

Kate and I recently had a discussion about the most stupid vehicles on the road - see her blog at http://katebikes.wordpress.com/ - Right on cue, an RV (recreational vehicle) towing a boat passed by with only a few inches to spare. Not only did I empty my air horn on it, but when I saw it in a layby later on, I went to explain the error of his ways, in a polite and calm way, of course.

Riding together to Wawa.

Kim and Debbie joined us again at the layby, and we all rode together to Wawa, chatting and messing about on the way, and stopping for lunch and a swim at a lake en-route. Lynx are very shy and seldom seen animals in Canada, but today we saw one and it hung around long enough for it's photo to be taken.

As a result of the large birds often spotted in town, the local roofer is kept very busy.

Wawa means goose in one of the native Canadian tongues, I think, and there were many giant specimens gracing the town, although there was no wifi to be found anywhere. Cody however managed to put things in perspective when he talked a grocery store from throwing a box of trout filets out as the sell by date had arrived, and was given them. They were cooked at a great wild camping spot by the Michipicoten River, which had fabulous swimming (in leiu of showers).

Perfect swimming spot.

After lots of food and an early night I hope to be less grumpy tomorrow.
