Day 4

Cobourg to Consecon

We decided on a little shorter day today after yesterday’s hills and heat.  We had planned to stay at another Warmshowers host tonight but decided to cancel and shorten our day by about 20km.

The day started early with the Cobourg municipal employees starting on beach maintenance and garbage detail.  We said farewell to our fellow travelers and headed downtown for breakfast and our internet fix.  By 9 am we were on the road with a strong wind our back pushing us along.  Once we got off highway 2 the roads were very quiet and we made good time.

At our stop for lunch and supper at the Sobeys we met a couple (M&M) from Switzerland who heading to Montreal along the Waterfront Trail on a tandem bicycle.  We visited for a bit, did our shopping and were off.  After eating lunch we caught up with them again and since they had no other destination planned decided that we would share a campsite at the Lake Consecon Resort.  We had a wonderful time visiting with them and sharing experiences from more than just cycling.

Fortunately, the day was not as hot and our mileage was just about right.  A great day.

Lunch again with the sleeping
