Found my spare clutch cable if Brian doesn't have one Bob.

Great to see you guys enjoying the down east experience. Deb must be particularly happy being back home. Are you going to be able to drag her (reluctantly) back to the prairies?

Am off on a trip to Minnesota with a buddy tomorrow... if I can get my act together and finish packing.

Deborah and the Prairies

If she could, she would keep us right here. She loves the East coast and its not hard to see why, very laid back and friendly people everywhere. I was smitten with PEI, I must say its a place that seems to have it all. Pleasantly surprised the affordability of everything out East, does not cost a lot to holiday here!

Might be passing your place...or at least trying to again...on Wed. Weather doesn't look very good for the next couple of weeks, so I'm sure if the bike doesn't break again, it will be a crappy trip weather wise

At End-of-Day Acres

I had a lovely time meeting Bwokentoof (Oliver), and his wife Michelle (as well as his son, whose name escapes me right now) in Williamsford ON. We did not get to go kayaking after all - as the waters on Georgian Bay were too choppy for a rank amateur like me - but I was well taken care of nonetheless...What a delightful couple they are!!!

Today I rode to Erinsville ON, to hang out for a couple of days at the End-of-Day Acres - the home of our friends Dawn and David...I arrived her around 6:30, and will be enjoying their hospitality for a couple of days - getting mentally prepared for the rest of the journey to the east coast...

From here on in I will be entering unknown territory (at least for me), as I will be riding the north shore of the St. Lawrence - then the Gaspe Peninsula and the Bay of Fundy.....After that, I will return to the Cabot Trail to do it counter-clockwise, and then back to the mainland to see my friend Sue in Aylesford NS...

Hopefully, at some point, Brian and John might catch up with me...then again, they might not...we wiii see...

The roads on both sides of the St Lawrence River are pretty nice riding...although a bit strange riding 80-90km/hr, with the houses so close to the road!

I rode through a torrential rainfall and windstorm going through there last time, and flattened a cat. Didn't see it until the last minute.

Poor kitty.

Reminds me of an Eric Bogle tune...

Somebody's Moggy by the side of the road
Somebody's pussy who forgot his highway code
Someone's favorite feline who ran clean out of luck
When he ran onto the road and tried to argue with a truck
Yesterday he purred and played in his pussy paradise
Decapitating tweetybirds and masticating mice
Now he's just 6 lbs of raw minced meat that don't smell very nice
He's nobody's Moggy now

Oh you who love your pussy be sure to keep him in
Don't let him argue with a truck the truck is bound to win
And upon the busy road don't let him play or frolic
If you do I'm warning you it could be CAT-ostrophic
If he plays out on the roadway I'm afraid that will be that
There'll be one last despairing MEOW and a sort of squelchy SPLAT
And your pussy will be slightly dead and very, very flat
He's nobody's Moggy
Just red and squashed and soggy
He's Nobody's Moggy now
Ooohmm


A fine song, with a great story to accompany it...

Sorry about the color for the link...I can't figure out how to change it to something more visible...
