Day 25: Sudbury to Marathon

Location: Marathon, ON

Sunday I left the comfy confines of Sudbury headed for somewhere between there and Thunder Bay. I finally settled on Marathon, just minutes from Pukaskwa National Park.

The drive was long, with no cellphone reception from Rogers after Sault Ste Marie. So I found a few ways to keep my mind occupied. The town with the smallest population was Desbarats. Population 400.

My favourite for sale item was the car below. Well, actually my favourite was an olive green old Ford truck, but I wasn't quick enough with the camera.


It was a sunny day and the coastline along Lake Superior was beautiful all the way to Marathon.



I learned about the Michipicoten Canoe Route, which formed an important link between Lake Superior and James Bay back in the first trade days of the late 1700's.


On the drive between Wawa and White River, I got stuck behind a police car for the hour long drive, but finally I made it to White River... the birthplace of Winnie The Pooh (Aug 24th, 1914)!



The sunset was a colourful display as I finally settled on Marathon as the sleeping grounds. I pulled up next to a restaurant and was in asleep on the bed in my van by 11 pm!

Glad you met Winnie-The-Pooh! Your father and I had our picture taken with him two years ago.

Love
Mom
