|Today we have to drive 440 km, so we will spend some
time in the bus. However, the landscape is beautiful. First we visit
Park. Algonquin Park stretches for 7,725 square kilometres. It's
a nature reserve of woods, rugged hills, lakes and rivers. Formerly
the woods in this park were used for logging.
Our tour guide and bus driver had another wonderful idea. Instead
of having lunch at a museum's restaurant or at some McDonalds or
something like that on a parking lot, they came up with the idea of
having a picknick in the woods on a nice spot. This idea was
introduced by them yesterday in Ottawa and everybody agreed to do
that. So everybody paid their share and our tour guide and bus
driver spent some time shopping in supermarkets in Ottawa yesterday
evening to provide us with a nice picknick. Plan A was to have the
picknick in the open air. Because the weather isn't that nice today,
there was decided to do plan B: having a picknick in a wooden cabin
in the woods!
In the afternoon we visit the logging museum and walk the
Hardwood Lookout Trail. Later this afternoon we visit some nice
water falls. Much nature today.
In the beginning of the evening we arrive at Midland, a very
small town where there isn't much to do. We can have some rest here
before we arrive at one of the highlights tomorrow: Niagara Falls!
