24.6 km - Total so far 2,259.70 km
This morning we had a late departure as we waited for the rain to stop/slow down for a while. We had but a short ride of 20 kilometres to North Sidney, to the ferry terminal.

sure it is really big
This morning I was reading the "What happened this day (24 June) in history" in the local newspaper. There was a story about Flight Lieutenant David Hornell who was awarded a Victoria Cross for sinking a submarine on 24 June 1944. Coming across the same information at Munro Park on 24 June 2017 was an even more interesting coincidence. We thought this would be a short and boring ride.

North Sidney. We think the bird in white has identity issues.
