Jul 2, 2017 - Providence Bay

I was looking for a small, quiet place to spend the busy long weekend & Providence Bay has fit the bill perfectly but I’m ready to move on tomorrow & find more exciting places to discover. One of the advantages of the Canada 150 celebrations has been the number of retrospective programs about Canada’s history on TV. I watched a very interesting program this afternoon on the War of 1812 which I’d heard of but really didn’t know who fought who where or, more particularly, why. I’d come across the War of 1812 a couple of days ago at Fort St...

Jul 1, 2017 - Providence Bay

I didn’t do anything very exciting today. I watched some of the Canada Day 150th birthday stuff on TV but Providence Bay is a very small community so there wasn’t much happening here. It’s good to see just about everyone sporting their red & white shirts & they all seem to be very proud of their relatively new Canadian flag which they’ve had since 1965. I went for a walk along the beach & had a long chat with a bloke I met on the boardwalk. He was born here so could give me all kinds of information about Manitoulin Island. Apparently, his...

Jun 30, 2017 - Massey to Providence Bay

The roads & the grocery store were busy this morning with everyone getting ready for the Canada Day long weekend. I’m now on Manitoulin Island, the world’s largest freshwater island & it looks like it will be a great place to spend this holiday, which is probably the busiest weekend of the year. There’s a boardwalk just across the road from the campground which goes along the shore of Lake Huron & it’s just the right distance into town where I found some delicious locally made Black Raspberry ice-cream. Bliss!

Aug 25, 2010 - We saw a black bear!

We started our day at Dynamic Earth. We took a one hour tour that takes you underground and gives a good understanding of the history of mining in Sudbury. They explained how the mining industry has evolved over the last one hundred years. Some of the mines at Sudbury go down about two kilometres. We found it interesting that for every kilometre you go down in the earth the temperatures rises by 25 degrees C. Carol’s Campground at Sudbury was very nice. We sat out most of the evening and enjoyed a campfire. We always like to plan ahead for...

Aug 7, 2006 - Ontario / Lake Huron

Monday, August 07, 2006 The drive through Sault Ste. Marie and on to Manitoulin Island was a bit long and bumpy in places. Route 6 has lovely peach colored rock formations and views of Lake Huron. We are camped at South Bay Resort, awaiting a ride on the MS Chi-Cheemaun Ferry. Tuesday, August 8 We tried standby for the 9:10 sailing but were confirmed on the 1:30 sailing. This will be a short (under 2 hour) crossing and the price seemed very reasonable after the Alaska ferry rates. Ron and Zannah explored South Baymouth while Linda took it...
