The weather has been sunny with a few wispy clouds and temps hovering near 25 degrees every day…..what more could you desire. Each day I cycled ( motor ) part of the S East side of the Island, spending time each day at Little Current.
Visited Red Lodge on Lake Manitou to see if they could accommodate a mix of campers and softer bikers in cabins…….they said they could feed smorgy board meals for a group of 200 but didn’t have the seating for a single seating nor did they have separate meeting rooms…..Too bad it was a very pretty site complete with quaint BAR…( HORIZONS UNLIMITED VENUE )
This is the 1st time in the 15 years I have been coming to the island that I have seen a cruise ship and this week I saw 2 at Little Current both from out of country. Thursday the Pearl Mist, a German owned ship pulled in and I had coffee with the SECOND OFFICER, who was from Panama.
They are on route to Chicago.
Yesterday afternoon while driving through the harbour front ….a group of Adventure Bikes waved me over. They had noticed the STICKERED PANNIER with the Argentina Flag. Fernando Sistero was interested in my trip last year to his home country, turns out this group where all Argentinean, Canadian Citizens, on a trip along Lake Superior. Fernando was with his teenage son, during our conversation I learned he was in the midst of a divorce and would be returning to Mendoza Argentina. He had married a Canadian girl, had 2 children who he said would stay in Canada as he felt it safer here for them. His sister owns a Restaurant in Mendoza and that he would be happy to host me and show me around if I returned to Argentina. We exchanged emails and he said he would be in touch. He is shipping his GS 1200 to Argentina. I mentioned in earlier posts how friendly I have found the Argentina's to be……this WORLD would be a better place if we all had the opportunity to travel preferably not using 5 star accommodations because you rarely meet the real side of that country…..just my opinion…
Hockey starts next week, so I will soon pack up and head home……received a email notice that I have been drafted by TEAM LAMERIAU.Judging from where my name appeared on the list, I was not a priority pick…lol
