Day 38 – Coffee Landing Cafe

16 Sep

Lots of trains through the night and early morning geese, but we had a good night. I was up about 7:30 and the shower is awesome, in the overheated building felt more like a sauna. Friendly neighbours brought us coffee for breakfast. On a chilly 9 degree morning no breakfast could be finer than granola and yogurt, says Sammy with gloves on.

The campground is on the huge shallow Lake of The Woods and is apparently good for fishing walleye.

We just stopped at a quirky cafe for brunch.

I should mention that the cutest waitress in town works here.

You know you are in Northern Ontario when you see signs like “moose on the loose” and a yellow highway caution sign has a picture of a moose and says “night danger 130 km.”
Tonight, September 16 at 7:56pm I saw a flash in the NE sky like a very bright comet or meteorite. We have driven in the dark for about an hour cautiously watching for moose on the highway and have stumbled upon Rossport Cabins for the night; greeted and most genuinely welcomed by Ned and Shelagh to sit and join them for desert and share red velvet cake. A comfy tiny cabin is perfect for us; much better than the tent. The Rossport Inn was built in 1884 by the CPR and is still welcoming travelers from May to October
1 807 824-3213 reservations. Probably the oldest inn on the north shore of Lake Superior.
