The calm before the..."time to get up". There's an 0630 in the morning now?
It's a grey rainy day here...hopefully we'll drive out of the rain to the west. Tech is connected for two hours of screen time...then, looking out the window time :)
Lookout at the Chippewa River. Saw a Bald Eagle also but was too far away to photograph.
Do you want to go to the river?
No, I don't, thanks.
But I don't, though.
Yeah, but I don't though...
Last gas for 150 km...time for a break and sifting through gemstones.
Jonathan has been testing out the yellow camera and has been taking landscape and abstract subject photos today. We'll have to put the SD Card in the laptop tonight to look at his pictures.
White River, Ontario still gets rail passenger service three times a week, though you'd never know it by the dilapidated train station here. Didn't know the CPR still used work trains like these - thought they were a relic of the 1980s but here they are.
I've photos at home from this spot - only taken the other direction down by the water. It's one of Nicholas Morant's favourite locations, the CPR bridge over the Little Pic River. Morant was the corporate photographer for the railway for over 30 years.
This unremarkable piece of highway is actually an important landmark: mile 3,389 of the of Terry Fox's 5,300-mile Marathon of Hope. It was here where Terry Fox was forced to give up his run, as his body had unfortunately given up on him. Within sight of Thunder Bay, this lookout and memorial were completed and dedicated in 1982. We've stopped here to pay respect to a man the children whose courage they've come to know by way of the annual run at school. I'm not sure if many of their classmates have ever come here or will ever have the chance. Even I haven't until today - and in many respects, this place is as moving as some of those I've recently visited in France.
ill do something later...;)
