Lady was feeling more energetic, and we continued some way past Tweed, eventually finding a place to stay near Ivanhoe with Pete and Julie Marshall, who keep pulling horses (by which I mean horses that pull) .
May 15th and cutting across country something tells me I am travelling through Amish land..
I had hoped to stop somewhere just the other side of Campbellford, but although farmland ran back to the trail, it was not until I reached a country road several miles further on that I came across a farmhouse surrounded by machinery. It had started to rain as I knocked at the door, so I was relieved when a friendly elderly lady appeared. Grace Wynne invited me in, and when son Michael arrived Lady was put into a shed with an enormous pile of hay while I joined them for supper. To my surprise it transpired that Grace was very well travelled, having visited China, Argentina, Singapore, Malaysia, the Aegean and the UK to name but a few. With her husband she drove all over America including Alaska and Labrador, though they failed to make South America when they ran out of road.
