There were no late night shenanigans in our campground, so we got a better night’s sleep at Knight’s Beach. Out on the road this morning we passed a large group of cyclists all wearing the same red and white kit (cycling outfit) of a cycling club from Ancaster, Ontario. When we stopped at a cafe in Selkirk, there were even more riders from the club having breakfast–now there’s an endorsement. Any place bicyclists stop in large numbers is bound to be good. For second breakfast, I enjoyed another peameal bacon and fried egg sandwich. Peameal bacon is similar to what Americans think of as Canadian Bacon, but much better. Very tender and not too salty. I learned it is a food locally associated with Toronto, but we saw it offered everywhere along the coast of Lake Erie in Ontario.

Tobacco?

Later in the day we made it to the town of Port Dover. We found a supermarket and I stocked up on a few items for dinner. Since it wasn’t too much farther to our campground from town, I purchased frozen mixed vegetables and packaged Indian simmer sauce to make a curry over rice for dinner. We stayed at Hidden Valley campground, which is another RV community. The tent camping area was tucked away in a nice grassy area under the trees and we pretty much had it all to ourselves.
