Tobermory is a charming little town at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula, the strip of land separating Lake Huron from Georgian Bay. And that's where I've been chilling out for a couple of days..... believe me, it's gorgeous!
Tobermory's Little Tub Harbour is full of boats of every size and shape, and of course there are plenty of places to stay, places to eat, places to shop, and places to spend money, but in spite of being a bustling summer tourist town, it's well worth a visit.
The Bruce Trail starts here, and follows the Bruce Peninsula and the Niagara Escarpment all the way to Queenston, near Niagara Falls. If you hiked 30km and 8 hours a day, it would take 30 days to complete the 885 km of the Trail all the way. I walked just a little teeny tiny bit of it, around the harbour.
Little Tub Harbour is peaceful early in the morning. I sat on a bench sipping my coffee and enjoying the quiet before the business of the day got started.
Like good tourists, we took a tour boat ride out into Georgian Bay to see the shipwrecks and the islands.... more about that in a later post.
And we spent lots of time sitting in the sun with friends and family on the dock of this beautiful summer cottage, built among the trees on the shore of Big Tub Harbour.
A lovely way to spend a few summer days.
