We got up and headed around the corner to Char’s Family Dining for a pretty good breakfast. With that out of the way, we got packed and loaded up the bikes.
We managed to leave the hotel by about 930am, since we had both fueled up the night before, we were on the road pretty early (for us). We made it through the US/Canada border at about 1015am, then stopped in the hot wind for a drink just up the road from the Canadian border farm house.
The highway from the border to the Cypress Hills Provincial Park is … well, kinda boring in its’ straightness. I got this picture of Louise though …
Later on we stopped at the favourite PetroCanada greasy spoon dive for lunch. The same waitress was working, remembered Louise from the first time we were through. I should have got a picture of her.
I think I might have the same lunch as before too, a toasted BLT and fries – they were good!
After a while on the road, melting in the heat, we stopped at a rest stop for a drink and some shade.
And a nap …
It was only a quick nap though, because home was only a couple of hours more away. After a quick gas stop in Strathmore, we cruised on into the city, arriving at home at about 415pm.
Our son Robert was pretty happy to have Louise home and so were our best friends Jo and Al.
So, after over 6500 kms riding alone over a month, Louise was home!
