Day 87: Johnstown to South Mountain

Blueberry pancakes with maple syrup and bacon were presented for breakfast this morning. Delicious!

Yet another cool morning greeted me as I rolled out of the garage. Karen and Martii have been amazing hosts. The trend continues.

I thanked them for their hospitality, posed for a few photos with them, then rolled out. We had an early start as they had to be at church for 8am.

Flat and easy. Traffic was non-existent. Wide roads with a good shoulder.
Bliss this morning.

Highway 2 was done with for now, I turned left onto 22 and rode that, through cornfields and small towns, until I reached the junction with 3.
Here I sent a message to Rebecca telling her to put the kettle on as I was moments away. As I pressed Send, I saw a car coming towards me, driving on my side of the road.

"Hmm, what's going on here?"

It turned out to be Rebecca, Mike (her dad) and Rudy (the dog) coming out to meet me. Crazy drivers!!

I arrived at the house shortly after they met me, then met Mary-Ellen (her mom). A shower and a cup of tea later, we packed some food and clothes and headed off to Gananoque to see Scot for a swim and dinner.

More s'mores, this time made with homemade maple marshmallows, finished off dinner beautifully.
