Thunder Bay

We stayed an extra day at the Kakabeka Falls as it rained on Monday and it didn’t make sense to drive anywhere in that. Good day to walk around on the campground a bit and do laundry! Today we left fairly early to go check out Thunder Bay a bit. We first drove to the Marina Park and it was quite cloudy and foggy. We also went into town a bit, but didn’t really find the right shopping streets. When we returned to the Marina Park, it was sunny and the Sleeping Giant across the bay was finally completely visible! We started to make our way around the bay to get to the Sibley peninsula and the Sleeping Giant Provincial Park and we’re now taking a break at the Terry Fox Memorial. There is a visitor centre and of course the impressive statue of Terry Fox, who started to run (with a prosthetic leg) across Canada to raise money for cancer research until his own cancer forced him to stop close to where this memorial is. As a bonus, there are even better views over the bay and the Sleeping Giant! As soon as we get to the peninsula, we’ll get out of cell range, so see you in a few days!
