It rained through the night and was still raining when I got up this morning...but the weather forecast said that it was going to clear up for the afternoon. And sure enough, it stopped raining and the clouds started to break up by 10:00 or so and the sun started to come out.
It was lovely out by the time we hit the road at 11:00. We made our way out of Sault (Soo!!) Ste. Marie heading east on highway 17. It was an uneventful drive...stopping only once at a picnic site just on the outskirts of Iron Bridge where we ate the sandwiches I had packed. There was also a little farm market set up with the local ladies selling their jams, jellies, fresh made bread, cookies, pies...etc...along with some fresh produce as well. We bought a small (single serving) cherry pie and a date square...both of which served as dessert for us later that evening.
