Having failed to entice these locals into my snare, I cleared the area before the local authorities could arrive and investigate, and in the course of my escape and evasion I came upon the town of Blakeney, Ontario.

My GPS showed that it straddled the Mississippi river which could make it of tactical interest in certain situations, and that made it a photograph-worthy area.

Their bridge over the Mississippi -

Making my way into the area:

and then gathering the intel:

One observation I have to make about the areas is how aggressive and persistent the local airborn troops are - every time I tried to my riding jacket off, any exposed skin was promptly dive-bombed and munched on with great vigor.

It was a relaxing stop overall.
