Unlike the last time we took a rest day that had us walking and playing tourist all day, we had a late start and only played tourist for a half-day. We still managed to put almost 25 km on the bikes.
We located what we consider to be the best equipped laundromat of our entire trip to date. All brand new front loading washers and dryers and we got everything done in less than 45 minutes. We then hit the grocery store and bought tons of food as nothing is open tomorrow (Canada Day) and there are not that many services between Thunder Bay and Nipigon.Once we dropped the laundry and groceries at the motel, we once again headed down the the road to pick up propane cans at the other end of town.

We also stopped at the waterfront park where Canada Day celebrations will take place tomorrow. We thought best to do it now so that we could use the bicycles to get around on the paths. We figure tomorrow the place will be overflowing with people. It is only recently that the citizens of Thunder Bay get to access the waterfront. As you can see in some of the pictures, the waterfront was industrialized and one only got close to the water if they worked there. You can buy yourself a waterfront condo starting at $337,000 overlooking the harbour, Sleeping Giant Provincial Park and as far as one can see, Lake Superior.
