Sault Ste Marie, Ontario

fokker

Sault Ste Marie   or the “Soo” is a terrific city.  You can take the Agawa Canyon tour; go to an Art Gallery,  stop at a microbrewery (there’s that word again), Canadian Bush plane museum, gamble at the Casino or walk along the Boardwalk and stop and have lunch outside.  You are also close to Fort St Joseph National Historic Site.

Manitoulin Island

2016 –   Gocrane-sigManitoulin Island via the Chi-Cheemaun ferry, leaving from Tobermory !  If you take this ferry, particularly in the summer months, its best to make a reservation ahead of time……just sayin’.  Its super busy. We arrived early in the morning and we were the first vehicle in line for the ferry.  Had a lot of time to kill, so went exploring in the small town.  Tobermory is located on a small harbour at the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula.   We had breakfast at Craigie’s one of the original buildings in Tobermory.  Lots of little cafes and cute little shops; not to mention a microbrewery!

McGregor Provincial Park

DSCN2943

McGregor Provincial Park was the first stop on our Lake Superior Circle Tour.  It took about 5-6 hours to get here.  With stops of course.  We had site 223 which was an okay site; this is a busy park.  You can do a lot of biking in McGregor Park and there are lots of trails to hike.  I don’t know about paddling on Lake Huron but the  Saugeen River is close by.

Algonquin Park – June 2016

foxes at water

I love Algonquin Park in the spring !   I love seeing all the babies, they are on the trails, on the rivers and in the woods!  And quite often the loons are still sitting on their eggs.  So we finally were able to secure site 77 at Lake of Two Rivers.  We have always wanted to try this site.  Very big, on the water (but not really good water access) private except on one side is a valley area of bush between us and the sites on the southwest side.  We had a few people tromping through that bush and ending up in our site !    Happened more than you would think lol.  And they always look surprised as if our 20 foot trailer and truck are invisible !
