Day 10 – Carriage Hills Resort

A fun day today. We had a leisurely morning and then took off about 30K north to Midland where we hopped aboard the SS Miss Midland, a small cruise ship that goes on a 2 1/2 hr. tour of Georgian Bay (a bay of Lake Huron), which contains 30,000 islands (“among the largest concentration of islands in the world. We don’t see all 30,000, but a good proportion. Many little rocky isles and many large islands full of little cottages to large mansions. Apparently all have fresh water wells. Lots of sail and motor boats. We miss seeing the whales and puffins we enjoyed in Alaska’s bays, but you can’t have everything. We return to Craighurst (the nearest little town to our resort) and dined at a nearby golf club restaurant. David Hurst asked us to document whatever different foods we are having in Canada. Well, David, I had pickerel (a species of walleye pike), which is native to this area, for dinner. A tasty whitefish.
