Day 11 – Wednesday, September 3 - Keewatin, Ontario – Today 47 miles – total miles 2741
Wednesday we didn't move. We stayed on Lake of the Woods. We explored the Kenora and Keewatin area and just took it easy. Kenora has a wonderful farmers market right on the water and seaplanes coming and going just off shore. This part of Canada has lots of fly in resorts and private islands. It is fun to think about spending time on a private island some day.
In the afternoon we sat on the deck in front of our B&B and played cribbage. It was a warm day with no wind and no bugs! Other than the fact that Duke beat me it was a perfect afternoon. I highly recommend the Spruce Lake Bed and Breakfast in Keewatin.
Day 12 – Thursday, September 4 - Keewatin, Ontario to Thunder Bay, Ontario – Today 310 miles – total miles 3051
Thursday we drove to Thunder Bay on Lake Superior. Thunder Bay is in the eastern time zone and is the farthest east we will go on this trip. It is also Canada's biggest wheat terminal. The last several days we have seen lots of combines in the fields harvesting the wheat.
We have seen several wonderful waterfalls on this trip. Yesterday we stopped at Kakabeka Falls just outside of Thunder Bay. It seemed like the best but then I say that about all of the big ones.
