After the adventures in Week 29 through Northern Ontario, Week 30 saw me still up in Northern Ontario on Manitoulin Island, rather than take the northern route and Highway 69 I chose to take the MS Chi-Cheemaun from South Baymouth across Georgian Bay to Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula. The Chi-Cheemaun is the current ferry operating between the mainland and the island, one in a long line of ships that have taken the route.
The Chi-Cheemaun sailing into the South Baymouth Port.
The joys of driving a compact car, is that we’re often one of the first loaded, giving us a view of the last of the vehicles to be loaded into the ship’s hold.
Thankfully these alarms never sounded on our sailing.
A last view of the docks as we depart. You can already see the next round of cars lining up. They have about a four hour wait.
Of course there are lighthouses along the way.
With a two hour sailing, much of it in open water, your best bet is to pick some shade and enjoy the journey, a book (or in my case cameras) would also help.
