We left Brandon bright and early.
We stopped in Portage-la-Prairie for a break and found a flock of pelicans.
We visited the Canadian Mint.
We stopped at the longitudinal centre of Canada.
We saw another house on the back of a truck on the TransCanada highway. Must be a prairie thing.
Then we crossed from the forests of Manitoba to rocky Northwestern Ontario.
We stopped at a quiet rest stop to celebrate kid No 2’s birthday with cake and a picnic dinner.
We got to our campsite late. Nothing like setting up your tent in Northern Ontario in the dark because turning on the car lights attracts swarms of bugs. Those bugs were vicious. Hitchcock and his birds have nothing on these bugs.
It was just in time for a campfire. No fire bans here. And we spotted a few shooting stars from the Perseid meteor shower before bed.
