We arrived in Tobermory, Ontario just after 11:30 AM to sunny skies despite the cold, wet and windy weather of South Baymouth when we set sail. It had been an uneventful passing over Lake Huron although it was too chilly and rainy to sit outside on the upper deck of the Chi-Cheemaun. The waves were high due to the stormy weather although no where near as bad as they could have been. As boaters, the rougher waters didn't bother us. We were quite pleased to see the sunny skies knowing we wouldn't be setting up camp in the rain.
Tobermory is in bear territory so all the refuse containers are bear and racoon proof. Visitors are encouraged to use these containers scattered throughout the village to help discourage wildlife from becoming a problem. Shipwreck Lee's Bar & Bistro is set up with this in mind.
Tobermory is on Georgian Bay. The only main road south to Owen Sound is Highway 6, a small but very scenic two lane highway. Scattered along this route are several roadside stands as well as a few farm markets selling local whitefish. We normally stock our cooler with whitefish and other goodies to take home.
