Kenora Ontario

It was mostly cloudy when we left the campground at 9:25 but cleared gradually as we neared Winnipeg. We took the hwy 100 by-pass called the "perimeter highway"  south of the city and stopped to top up the gas tank at a Flying J, our cheapest price yet @ $ .87.4. Too bad we needed only 59 litres. Gas was $1.11.9 / litre in Ontario. Ouch!
There was more construction, reduced speeds for  badly needed repaving.
We crossed back into Ontario, stopped at the Welcome Centre only to discover that just the washrooms were open and not the information section.
We continued to Kenora, the second largest city in Northwestern Ontario with a population of  15,500. We visited  the Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre which opened in 2011, an impressive building in itself. We drove around Kenora, had to stop for a doe and fawn crossing the road before checking in at Anicinabe RV Park & Campground overlooking Lake of the Woods. Our site overlooks a beach  on the lake. It remained mostly sunny, reaching a high of 22ยบ.


It  was another easy motoring day, 287 km. We stopped at 2:45 and enjoyed both the view and the weather the rest of the day.  Shadow and I came upon a deer near our site on one walk.
