After reluctantly leaving Sue and Gords and cycling off into a cold and of course wet rain we arrived in the thundering city of Thunder Bay.  It has to be noted that if it were not for the gracious act of Sue and Gord we probably would not have made the entire distance to Thunder Bay.  We had the advantage of getting a great rest and starting off dry as we went into the rain.  We would have otherwise packed up a wet tent-not a good scene. 
  First stop was a Robins Dounut shop for a coffee and an apple fritter- sold out, ok blueberry fritter will do.  We were destined for yet another warm bed and hot shower.  Lucky us.  We were headed for a friends parents place who we had never met.  They turned out to be slightly out of town and by the time the day was over we had cycled 140km.  At the end of our rope and with little energy to spare a man in a pickup slowly came to a stop next to us at a T-intersection as we contemplated if were we still going in the right direction.  "Do we have a Peter and Susan?" Came the voice,  well I was ready to welcome the pickup and and poor Sarah would just be out of luck.   Soon the elusive Susan was realized as Sarah.  We were asked if it would be cheating if our mystery man would drive us to our destination.  NO!  We will take the ride.  It turned out our rescuer was in fact Stacy's dad- he brought us the remaining 7km to his and his wife's Inez's place.  
We spent the next two nights there.  In the morning Inez took us to a local breaky place for breakfast and then we had the infamous 'Persian'.  It is a cinamon donout covered in a sercret sparkled pink icing...secrets in the sauce.  The persian is a Thunder Bay annomolly never to be repeated.  Our hosts graciously showed us around the town and the recently gentrified marine park area.  Our time there was relaxing and felt just like home.  Thanks to James and Inez and to our friend Stacy!  Take care as you journey on your own trip through SE Asia.
