I kept with a more reasonable 135km distance today, and aside from the black flies, the conditions were ideal. Very quite and peaceful. Also, even with the increased daily distances, the past three days have bumped up my west coast trip average speed by almost a full km/hr*.
My destination for the night is Arborg, which boasts the very picturesque Icelandic River as well as the world's largest curling rock. I can't decide which I found more impressive.

Wetlands in the Interlake Region
To clarify, they know the correct date in Arborg. I just took this pic mid promotional message
This is the world's largest curling rock. It's official

*if you're wondering why I qualify stats as easy coast/west coast legs, it's because I had to reset my trip computer in St. John's. I'll consolidate the data at the end of the trip.
