Day 2: Howareyanow, goodnyou, notsobad

In Central Ontario everyone has the Letterkenny accent, pertnear.

We woke up at Driftwood Bay Provincial Park. It’s right on the Ottawa River just at the Quebec-Ontario border.

I guess that makes us “big city slams”.

The park ranger had the accent. The staff at Timmy’s had the accent.

A lot of the kids I went to high school with would be right at home at Modeans (the fictional Letterkenny bar), drinking brews with the boys of Letterkenny.

But, they don’t have the accent.

Next, we headed upcountry. Letterkenny is filmed in Sudbury, but we didn’t have time to stop there. We just saw the smokestacks.

It’s important to get yer priorities straight. Those are some good central Ontario priorities right there.

We ate a picnic lunch near Matawa. Pit toilets with 5-year-olds. Yay!

And we arrived in Sault-Sainte-Marie for dinner, and at Lake Superior just after.

I was here. Lake Superior.

We stayed at Pancake Bay Provincial Park. It was very kid-friendly and our campsite was right across from the water and beside the playground.

We arrived just in time for a sunset. I gots’ta say, that’s what I appreciates abouts ya, Ontario. Then stars.

After the kids went to sleep

Our campsite was about 10m from the water so we could hear the waves as we fell asleep.

Tomorrow, Northern Ontario. Pitter patter.

Some stats:

  • Pit mines: 1
  • Super tall smoke stacks: 3
  • Amish horse-drawn carriages: 3
  • Total km: 1174
