Vacation Postcard #2
Terry Fox Memorial just east of Thunder Bay, Ontario
Northern Ontario is vast in size. We drove 700 km between Sault Ste Marie and Thunder Bay and saw endless expanses of forest and water with a few small communities inbetween. There are so many lakes that it appears too difficult to come up with original names for all of them. We passed Mom Lake, Dad Lake, Baby Lake, Old Woman Lake, and Rabbit Blanket Lake. The flowers at the side of the road were beautiful and flowering Lupins filled ditches and berms as we approached Thunder Bay. We saw the Terry Fox Memorial in July 1982 when it was first erected but it has been moved to a park just off the Trans Canada Highway. Interestingly, I am reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks while we travel.
