As we warned you, we were up and out of the RV park at 5:30, arriving at the ferry landing at 5:45. We learned something: We could have parked the Villa HERE last night (after 8:00 pm) and slept in the Villa; there were 5-6 RVs doing just that! We would have had an extra 1 1/2 hour of sleep and we would have saved C$62.00 for the RV site…!
Anyway, we were all checked in and all we had to do now was wait. We look a few laps around the landing…
Soon we were ready to board… It was a tight fit!
We had a lovely ride, enjoying breakfast in the cafeteria and walking around the various decks of the ferry. We are crossing Lake Huron, heading to Manitoulin Island. Lake Huron is filled with islands, but Manitoulin is the largest island in a fresh water lake in the world! It fact, Manitoulin it so large that it has a lake on it that is so large that there is an island in it that is so large that there is an lake in it! With an island!
The crossing was uneventful; Manitoulin Island is very remote and rural – farms and grazing land, and just a lot of empty land. Along the way we stopped to see the White Fish River and its falls:
Apparently there used to be a mill here:
Down stream, the river is quite calm:
Soon we were at our camping spot for the night: Serpent River RV Park.
There is a Serpent River:
We prepared for Happy Hours and an enjoyable time was had by all…
