West Coast to East Coast along the TC-1 East relocating to Nova Scotia ✌🏻 BC

Ontario kind of goes on forever. The trip started to feel pretty long last night when I was really tired. I pulled over at the first picnic spot I found after Kenora, beside Willard lake. I had the entire spot to myself.

The stars were radiant; I haven’t seen a sky that incredible with so many sparkling stars since I was in New Zealand, many years ago now.

The water was like glass; it was simply spectacular. I stared at the lights sparkling off the water for some time. When one of the lights started moving slowly along the water I wasn’t sure if I was looking at a reflection of the sky or fireflies. Eventually I realized it was a plane flying overhead but it totally threw me off.

I brought several fleece blankets and a few faux fur mats with me to make the most comfortable bed in the backseat of my CRV I laid them out along the rocks beside the water and slept under the stars for a about four hours from 2300-0300.

It was so peaceful listening to the loons calling and all the different sounds of the night. I could make out crickets and frogs and the sound of fish jumping. There weren’t any bugs, I thought that there would have been after one of the stops I made at dusk. The bugs were swarming; it gave me flashbacks of my fire fighting days. Specifically the muskeg in Quebec.

This trip, and the sense of ultimate freedom, is exactly what I need right now. The timing is truly impeccable. I need this to nourish my soul. My Mom doesn’t know I’m headed her way and I can’t wait to see her face when I arrive.

Here’s a link if you’d like to see where I’m at on Maps: https://maps.app.goo.gl/Yk6NFau8gzgZxMjW8

On my way to Katherine Cove today; only 9 h 29 min. It sounds amazing, I might stay there for a few days.

I mentioned where I was headed to a lady in a store just now. She said Katherine Cove is so beautiful “but there’s nothing there.”. I told her “That’s perfect. That’s exactly what I want.”

So I should get there after 1am.
