Eldo Inn in Blind River

Saturday 26 August 2006
Auberge Eldo, Blind River
77.8 km, 17.2 kph
4 hrs 32 mins, 9.10 – 5.00

Ouch – that was slow. Heavy head wind again with rain. In spite of poor conditions I enjoyed the day – we stopped at Thessalon (beautiful), Iron Bridge (lunch) and various places between. The last part of the ride down the Mississagi River was stunning – we were in a jungle. Good dinner at the Eldo, followed by a stroll down to the sandy beach of Lake Huron – all very beautiful.

Met a couple on a motorbike going to Vancouver; another couple on bicycles crossing the country same way as us, but they left 5 July… and were waiting out the rain under the same outhouse roof we were sheltering under. Mississagi Park, that would be.
