Jul 25, 2017 - Manitoulin Island 2

Another island day with lots of sun and no sign of rain! Yahoo! Our campsite is at Sheguiandah and today we headed north on highway 6. The roads are narrow and the speed limit is 80 km/hr just the way a relaxed life should be. We followed highway 540 and went to a town called Kagawong. Here we went on a hike to check out the Bridal Veil Falls. This is where we met two couples one from Boston and the other from Philidelphia. The guys were talking about hockey etc. We had taken pictures of me on the shore of Mudge Bay with a ship in the...

We walked the boardwalk and because Mel was...

That’s it folks. There are 2 dozen homes supporting these businesses although it must be said that the homes are currently unoccupied as they are summer cabins so the retail...

Aug 5, 2007 - Ride Manitoulin Island

Today, we head back to Sudbury on the first leg of our trip home. I suggested that we take a side trip and explore Manitoulin Island on the way. The ride to the island was quite nice, windy roads through a steep rocky area up to a fascinating old swing bridge with a single-lane wooden deck. The island itself was not much of a ride, mostly flat farmland. Not a lot to see. By the time we stopped at Ten Mile Point, we were very tired from the monotonous ride. Back through Espanola and a short highway run to our hotel in Sudbury. We freshened...
