Sault Ste Marie Ontario

Last night we stayed at Lakeside Guesthouse in North Bay, Ontario another airbnb rental. The apartment was clean and very comfortable. We had everything we needed and were right on the water – the views were superb.  Joan was very responsive and easy to work with. This was a wonderful place to kick-back and relax. This is another 5 star place we'd love to come back to visit.

Here is my best photo from the sunset last night on Trout Lake

and one this morning.

After we got on the road this morning, the clouds moved in. We traveled Trans Canada Highway 17 all day.

We had a hard time finding a place to eat but finally stopped at a tiny place kind of in the middle of nowhere. It was called No Special Place. It was special to us because we found somewhere to eat and it was way past lunch time! 

After checking the menu, we decided it was time to try Poutine. Ours was hand cut French fries with dark gravy and cheese curds - very good but not our usual diet. This was my half of our one order.

We spent a lot of time today backed up in traffic. This is definitely the construction season.

We both loved this sign and we saw it a number of times today. Our biggest concern is If you can't see, why are you driving?

We also saw this sign a few times including once where we crossed a street. Aren't there any younger people around? Schools here don't get out until next week; will they change the signs then?

Of course, I'm just joking about the signs!

By mid-afternoon, the clouds cleared.

We are at a rental house in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. This is the only rental we weren't sure about but it was the only one in the area we picked. It is awesome! We have a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with a great backyard and beautiful furnishings. The owners left us a nice goodie basket of fruit, candy, muffins, coffees... and we have a container garden on our back porch. That meant fresh lettuce for dinner tonight. Nice!

We are a few blocks from the water front - Lake Huron. We walked there a while ago and are about to head back for the sunset. It was a little breezy - maybe you can tell by this photo.

We'll stay here another day but aren't sure what we will do tomorrow yet. It will be a great day though!

  1. I got a good laugh at the signs. Ha! What a pleasant surprise that the rental you were apprehensive about turned out to be a wonderful place.
