2021-09-11 [3] : Roxton Pond

Our coffee stop today was in Granby ..  Cafe de la Brulerie - just over the bridge coming into town on the bike trail. It was great!

Our route (LB05- dash to Roxton pond) was on great roads in the morning with light traffic and then suddenly we were on a paved bike path for the last 15km into Granby. Quite busy with cyclists of all shapes and sizes.

Next stop after coffee was Roxton Pond which is the town where Harold's great great grandparents Sem Dalpe and Edesse Nicolle are buried. Sem Dalpe manufactured wood planes in Roxton Pond. More info:

Our return route on Chemin Saxby was a very nice road but seemed to get busier and busier as we got farther south towards Bromont. Not a good choice on a busy Saturday. Finally the bike path and then quiet roads through Fulford and home to Bondville.

Next time we'll take the bike path through Waterloo (LB05c ...) and in Roxton Pond we would stop for our sandwich on the more interesting west side of the pond.

Not alot of good pics today. The shots of Marion and Shirley are from yesterday's ride on the bike path east side of Lac Brome.

Rain tomorrow .. day off?
Harold and Marion
