We woke to find a Police Car parked next to Ellie.  I thought it strange that Police would stay at the Inn but we soon learnt that they were there for the award winning breakfasts they serve!  We were a little sad to be leaving Picton Harbour Inn.  We were beginning to really relax there.  But the miles await and they're not going to happen unless we get moving.
We traveled as far as Madoc where we had our first rest stop.  Nothing really kept us there so it was onwards and upwards.   We did, however, put the brakes on when we came across the High Spring Trading Post along the Trans Canada Highway.   The only thing worth seeing though was the outside!
We continued along on what we expected to be back country roads so we couldn't understand why they were so heavily trafficked.   The volume of traffic never let up the whole afternoon as we made our way to Dorien and Ann's home.
It was much further than we thought (in time anyway) and we rolled in to their driveway a couple of hours late.  We got reprimanded by Dorien for being late and then immediately carted off to the toy shed for a look see before joining them for a wonderful meal and some more chatter before turning in for the night.  Dorien is a very fascinating man and we felt we could spend many hours just listening and learning from him.
