Oops - No Room

I had planned to stay a couple of nights at a Canadian National Park at the northern end of the Bruce Peninsula to avoid the Labor Day crowds - unfortunately, the crowd beat me there and the campground was full. What to do - turn around and head back south, or maybe I should take the ferry to Manitoulin Island. Care to guess what I did? So at a little before 8:00pm last night I boarded the MV Chi-Cheemaun for the two hour sunset voyage to South Baymouth on Manitoulin. The little campground I found a couple of years ago (this was my 3 or 4 trip to the island) was still operating and my site (with a nice hot shower this morning) cost a whopping $10.

In Tobermory before the ferry arrived I had a few hours to kill, so I had a late lunch and just walked around the harbor.




Late this morning I hit the road heading for Sault Ste. Marie (the Soo, pronounced Sue) for my border crossing back into the U.S. after 71 days in Canada. Had a great time visiting our northern neighbors.
