Swastika to New Liskeard

Uncategorized 0 Comments

Departed Timmins.
Sad to leave in many ways.
There is a proper tea at Aline’s, an unattractive outside, but a warm and friendly inside, cafe 🙂
Staff at the hotel have been lovely. As have all the people that I met.
Motorcycle parking was in-front of the hotel lobby, thanks to the nice staff.

First stop along the way was to be Swastika, but roadworks were in progress.

Ran on.

Onto Kirkland Lake.
Downtown area has some bright spots, one of them being Plum Blossom Bakery Cafe. Located at the corner of a junction. With a small patio. And has just re-opened since covid. A tea & excellent almond croissant on the patio.
Then back onto the bike.

Ran on into Englehart. A big wood processing plant on the outskirts. And a nice cafe, Grandpa’s Diner, downtown. Had an excellent bowl of beef&broccoli soup. And a nice pork burger, with all the trimmings.

South onto Earlton, where right by the RV park is this huge statue of a bison……

It’s bigger than it looks in the photo.

Then onto Thornloe cheese.
Garmin had strange ideas about the cheese shop location. But the signage and the building being on the main road, took care of the directions.
Bought some blue cheese and a tiny piece of fudge.
Had a seat outside and took some calls, and made others.

Then onto New Liskeard. A town amalgamated in 2007, hence the new name.
Into the motel, just before the HUGE rain.
Settled down to cheese n cider for supper. And watching a little more of Servant of the People.
