day 1: ottawa, on – skead, on

departure: 12.52, temp: 22c
it was a beautiful day for a drive up the ottawa valley. the leaves are just starting to turn, and the colours were burning bright in the sun. we crossed the “other” mississippi river on our way out highway 17 west.  apart from a minor detour at arnprior, we cruised without incident all afternoon, listening to fleetwood mac (particularly their live at the BBC album).  we arrived at our destination in skead, in greater/grand sudbury, just before 18.30, and had a wonderful evening with friends tom and leslie (wink: big thanks to you both!). good food, lots of wine, and hours of conversation later, we called it a night. i didn’t get on their wifi, hence the delay in this post.
arrival: 18.20, high temp: 28c, traveled: 494km
