Just a quick up date.

I stayed with Lori in Winnepeg and loved her energy. Then I drove all day to meet Shawn in Thunderbay. The weather was drizzly but ok to drive in. Once I hit the Ontario border though, the speed limit hit 90 and MAN 7ookms is a long way at 90. I saw speeders stopped and the speed of traffic seemed to be about 100…so that was it. I drove from 8 to about 6:30. It was cold and wet but I managed some walk abouts just to keep my joints moving.

Nice to see...but the speed limit drops. Remember me complaining about driving too fast on windy roads? Well when long distances are involved it sure is nice.

Shawn lives in a tiny house right down town Thunder Bay (the Port Arthur side) I thought I was lost as I turned down a little back alley where there seemed to be parking lots for the buildings on the street and then I found a quaint, old little building. She has taken it an made it into a beautiful little home. This evening after dinner we walked through the down town to the waterfront in the dark in the rain. I could see the sleeping giant dosing in the gloom in the distance but it was too dark to take pictures of. We both came home soaked but feeling good. I am going to bed early. Driving and another time change is making my body feel woozy so a good nights sleep will help.

Vincent loved the stops. I have been pushing him hard.

This is the first time in my couch surfing days that I am actually on a couch in a living room but it is a pull out couch and very comfy. I am sharing it with a beautiful cat and am enjoying the purring as much as anything else. I can hear rain on the roof. It has been a good day.

Mountains and plains are wonderful but it sure was nice to drive back onto the good old Canadian Shield

I will connect tomorrow if I have internet…or not. Have a good rest of the weekend.

Mist is fabulous.
