We really enjoyed our stay on Port Stanley last night. We lucked out and picked what is probably the best place to stay in town. The food was really good, and we ended up eating lunch, dinner, and breakfast at the inn.

The terrain changed a lot today. For the last couple of days the landscape was dead flat, and the roads were laid out in a grid. We rode through mile after mile of farm crops. I am guessing a lot, but it looked to me like a mixture of corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, tobacco, and potatoes. Being so wide open, we have been at the mercy of the wind, whether it was for or against us.

Yesterday we encountered a couple of instances where we would come to a steep, short decline down into a river valley, where we would find a town at the mouth of the river — Port Stanley being a perfect example default iconAug05.gpx
