After we unloaded from the Ferry in Tobermory, we headed south in the sunshine and made our first stop at Sauble Beach. I can see how this would be so popular and busy in the summer, but because we arrived mid-week in Sept, it was pretty quiet. We enjoyed an afternoon with some sand, sun and chips from the burger stand.
We drove across the Pennisula and stayed the night in Owen Sound, boondocking at the Walmart there, which, conveniently was right beside a Swiss Chalet, our favourite restaurant. However, our wishes were dashed as they were “out of chicken”. So we had Harvey’s burgers instead. We carried on the next day to camp at Meford, in a wonderful municipal campground that was beautiful. We had a great site, good showers, power and a wonderful beach. We also had a visit with some of Caroline’s family and a chance to catch up and share about our trip.
After Meford, we headed northeast on our way to the Muskokas and Algonquin Park, where we had 3 nights booked at Lake of Two Rivers. We wanted to do a lot of Canoeing and so we rented one from Algonquin Outfitters and it was great! We explored multiple lakes, waterfalls, portaged and biked around the park. It was mostly good weather, except for the Tornado warning we got, but never actual materialized.
It was super nice to slow down for a bit, canoe every day and enjoy the changing of the seasons into Fall. We had full sun, fog, some wind, a little thunder and a little rain during our 3 days, but we stayed dry, warm and comfortable in our camper and canoe.
Here is our video and below are some pics of this segment of our trip

After Algonquin, we are shifting gears for a bit as we visit with family in Montreal and Ottawa. It will be good to park the truck for a bit and enjoy some indoor time and catch up with our family and friends back east.
