North Bay to Ottawa - Day 7 & 8

Our Hotel in North Bay lost our reservation. Even though I had the confirmation number the poor gal at the desk could not find it. I convinced her to perhaps try calling her manager and that phone call quickly erased all challenges!

Comfort Inn
 All of the Comfort Inns & Suites so far have had great tourism racks filled with local information - and they are deeply appreciated by many too!

While we were waiting to check in Lou DeVouno of the Hero's Highway Ride and his friend Graham walked up! Hugs and more hugs - we all got checked in, unloaded the bikes and promptly went to eat.

We ate at the East Side Marios - what a fabulous meal and the service was even better!
The company was fantastic and Lou and I were able to catch up on each other's news.

We headed to the rooms and I got some work done...the next morning we woke up to English Sunshine! The ride to Ottawa that should have taken about 4 and a half hours took 8. Twice we had to pull off at a restaurant to wait things out - at times there were rivers of water running down the highway. Lou was riding his new Victory - which he adores and his friend Graham was riding a Heritage Softail that he bought from Classy Chassis & Cycle.

an interesting sticker
Outside of our hotel we were treated to an interesting sticker on a guys car
We were also treated to a pair of raccoons - cute but viscous and rotten little creatures that get into everything...
Sadly - for some strange reason none of the pictures we took of Lou, Graham or our really, really wet ride to Ottawa turned out...I am hoping the when I can talk to Lou he will have some pictures he can share with me! Technology - you gotta love it!

Next stop - Ottawa...ride safe
