From Cheryl’s journal: “The sun is trying to peek out. Warm day. Had to buy more panties as we don’t want to do laundry again before we get home. By the time we were ready to go we started getting showers. We both saw a moose standing in the water on the side of the road around 10 am. As of the Quetico Provincial Park all waters now flow into the Arctic Ocean. Between Wawa and Thunder Bay all rivers flow into the Atlantic. Got gas in Atikokan and they said they were expecting 3 inches of rain. And yes it rained! Got to Fort Frances at about 2 and the rains kept going till 7 pm. Tried to play Rummy-O with Marcel but he found it hard to process. Stayed at the Walmart.”
Fort Frances is located on the international border with the US, where Rainy Lake becomes Rainy River. It is a popular fishing destination.
