Day 11, Jun 13, 0 miles, Gatineau, Québec.

Some of the deluge during our drive the previous day found its way into the passenger area and lower trunk storage space. Today, I spent a bit of time to sponge the water then let the sun and wind dry the rest. All was dry by the end of the day.

Day 14, Jun 16, 123 miles, Lac Richer, near Sainte-Agathe, Québec.

On the road again, destination Mont Tremblant, then Lac Richer near Sainte-Agathe, to visit our families.
The weather is light rain but an easy drive. Before we get to Mont Tremblant, a brief stop at the Chateau Montebello Golf Course for a photo shoot.

Nice picture at Montebello Henri. Too bad you didn't get one at the Chateau itself, it is such a magnificent building and almost right on the Ottawa River.

Did you get a round of golf in?

Andy,

We drove through Montebello twice; I took the Golf Shop photo on Tuesday, planning to go to the Chateau Montebello on out return on Thursday for a stroll and photos.
As it happens, the Town of Montebello, population 1,000, is hosting a Rockfest this weekend and is expecting 200,000 visitors & spectators.
When we drove through on Thursday, it is was already an 'animal zoo'; I caught a photo of my great-great-great-grandfather's house, located on the main street and backing onto the Ottawa river, barricaded against rockers, then hurried through town without stopping at the Chateau, disappointed but safe!

Day 19, Jun 21, 306 miles, Sudbury, Ontario

On the road again…
This morning we began our return trip to Calgary after a healthy breakfast, packing the MGB GT and long goodby’s. Overcast but dry roads, excellent driving and scenery from Gatineau to Sudbury.
The MGB GT continues to perform well under a full load.

Day 20, Jun 22, 344 miles, Wawa, Ontario

A low mileage day because we met a friend in Sault Ste. Marie for a longish lunch by the St. Marys river, and simply took our time to enjoy the scenery.

Day 21, Jun 23, 517 miles, Dryden, Ontario

Today was a great day of driving in every aspect: mileage, scenery and weather.
The scenery covered everything from farms to trees and forests to rock faces, lakes and of course Lake Superior.
The weather also covered the full spectrum of fog, clouds, hot sun, rain and thunderstorms combined with torrential rain that felt like driving through a touchless carwash, then the full spectrum started all over again.

Day 22, Jun 24, 366 miles, Brandon, Manitoba

A hot sunny day on the road today. Good driving, mostly on divided highways, but we chose to end today’s trip in Brandon in part because the heat was draining our energy and attention for the drive.
After all, we are on holidays, no need to rush!

Another hot sunny day today, but much longer distance; we pushed harder to get closer to home.
Tomorrow, the home stretch!

Day 24, Jun 26, 182 miles, Calgary, Alberta, home! Total mileage 5,150 miles

Yet another hot sunny day today. Excellent three hour drive to Calgary, we are back home and we have un-packed the MGB GT.
We covered 5,150 miles on this round-trip adventure and the MGB GT performed exceptionally well.
Thank you to Todd and his crew, Daniel and Russell, at Sports Car Parts, for an excellent preparation of the MGB GT.
This was a great Safety Fast! trip.
