Partially Cloudy With A Chance Of Rain

A weather announcer in Northern Ontario either has the easiest or most boring job in the world.  Just as it was 30-years ago when I spent some time up here the forecast continues to be "partially cloudy with a chance of rain".   And they were spot on today.

The rain first thing in the morning put a damper on some of the best riding today along the shore of Lake Superior.  Eventually it dried up and the the rest of the day was archetypical Canadian Shield.

Not sure if the Ontario Department of Highways is aware of what a great service they provide with their bilingual road signs.  I have been brushing up on my French all day and feel that I should have no problem carrying on a conversation as long as it doesn't veer to far from topics such as when to merge or where to check your brakes.

Tonight we are in Timmins and were able to successfully complete the Canadian Roadtrip Dining trifecta: Tim Hortons, Generic Truck Stop Diner and Chinese-Canadian Restaurant.

It wasn't all that bad.
