Bill and Bowie at a stop enroute

Fish and Moose pendants

August 14th

This was a day I was looking forward to. It was one of our longer drives but it started out at the top of Lake Huron and ended at the start of Lake Superior. There was heavy fog to start the day but it soon burned off and became very hot and humid again. We stopped in Sault Ste. Marie for the few groceries we needed then headed north and west on the Trans Canada. Once Lake Superior comes into view the drive becomes exceptionally scenic. All the highway construction we drove through in May is completed and the road is smooth and clear. It seems that most of the traffic is going East as we have the highway to ourselves. We pulled into the visitor center at Agawa Bay in the Lake Superior Provincial Park were we stopped on our way east and bought a fish and moose etching on glass, one for each of us. We did not expect that it would be so busy and we were lucky we stopped when we did as there were only 4 sites left in a park of 345 sites! It means the site we end up in is directly beside the Trans Canada in this long narrow park but Lake Superior is just a stone’s throw away to the west. A booming thunderstorm came in off shore but didn't amount to more than a heavy downpour for a few minutes. Even the highway traffic stopped for the night.
