First Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends hope it’s a good one.
Well was out and ready to hit the road at 0730am as I knew it would be a long one. It was sunny but on the cool side which is good for cycling. I hugged the Lake side for quite a bit of the day.
Then I entered the national forest area but still near the lake climbing up a few hills but nothing to bad.
These I passed on the side of the rd not quite sure what they were at first I thought storks or heron but I think to big. Now updated that they are indeed Sandhill Cranes thanks Randy
Then a climb up and a fast descent into Christmas yes that the name it did make me smile.
I then had a couple of hills then dropped into Munising which was alovely little town on the Lake and as I arrive I smelt a bakery from afar making pasties so as they were queuing out the door felt I couldn’t miss out.
Delicious is the only word especially when you are starving. The only problem is after eating this I had one more hill to hit so it was rough going on a full stomach. After lunch I knew I had 25 miles of nothing only me and the forest no stops. It was hard going at the end of the day as I also had a head wind which didn’t help but head down and on I kept going and eventually arrived at my destination not much but a garage a motel and a few houses but I made it.
For those of you interested my total mileage so far is 2,342 miles or 3,769 km so hopefully I maybe half way or more now. Im so surprised when I look at how far I have travelled and quite surprised by myself in getting thus far but thanks go to lots of lovely people who have helped out along the way. A big thanks to the support of my family who cheer me up at the end of some gruelling days and have the confidence in me to succeed. To all the people that follow my blog thanks guys it’s much appreciated and love having you on board listening to my rants and funnies sometimes I hope. So e mail me with any questions or funnies as love hearing from you.
