We started off the morning bright and early. We finished packing and hit the road at 7:00 am on the dot. So far our TomTom GPS has been pretty good; we only ran into one road closure and one non-existent road. The weather this morning was bright, sunny and beautiful when we left but just before our first planned activity at Sainte Marie Among the Hurons, it began to rain. We worked out a plan B to visit Discovery Harbour, but quickly had to move to plan C at the Hurianian Museum which was indoors because plan B was closed on Sundays and Mondays. At the museum we saw a display about the native Tecumseh and Nancy’s last stand. A was given the key to the Huron Ouendat Village. We saw the inside of a long house and L tried his hand at the game called “duck on a rock”.
We had fun counting the Inukshuks along highway 400. By all accounts there were hundreds, but L, E and A are still debating the exact number; L either has the keenest eyes or the wildest imagination. Along the way we also listened to David Archibald’s Five Great Lakes song as we thought it appropriate while driving along Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. We’re glad that we arrived at our campsite at Grundy Lake Provincial Park early as it took us a while to get ourselves organized as we were hampered by the rain and zillions of mosquitoes. It all resulted in a serious case of the giggles. We’re all set now and are going to play some games and go to bed early so that we can get a fresh start tomorrow morning. We miss everyone at home already ❤
