Today we didn't have very far to travel to get to Kathie's (Dave's sister) place, so we only took the Autoroute for an hour and then peeled off to the north-west before getting to Montreal towards Candiac. We travelled a highway that followed the south shore of the St Lawrence for a while then crossed the tributaries through a tunnel and a series of bridges
We stopped at a roadside vendor that was all set up for Motorcyclists including a separate parking area with plates on the ground to keep kickstands from sinking into the asphalt...it even had a seating area for bikers. We had a short break and then continued our way. Once on the north side of the St Lawrence, we took the 401 west for about 25km and then went north on back highways all the way to Kathie's place. We made a quick stop at an LCBO for supplies and were at Kathie's by 4pm. About 1km away from the place, we were going along backroads and a female deer leaped out in front of me from the bush line to the left. I braked hard and managed to stop in time and was starting to take off when Bambi came across racing after his mother. It was the first and only deer or moose encounter this trip. Good thing we were on back roads and not going that fast.
Once we arrived we immediately started to get what little we needed off the bikes and sat out on the deck vegging. We ate, we drank, we made big fire, we had fun...we also stayed up way too late.
