Saturday July 18, 2009 - Trip to Parry Sound

Today was another day of sun, cloud and rain.

The only difference is today we drove south to Parry Sound (birthplace of Bobby Orr) along Hwy 69. I thought we would see glimpses of Georgian Bay on the way but we didn't. The scenery along the highway is very pretty with lots of rivers and marshes though.

We made a brief stop in Parry Sound along Parry Sound Inlet which is part of Georgian Bay. We also stopped at a Tourist Information Bureau to get some campground information but wound up driving to the Parry Sound KOA and we were able to get 2 nights there (Monday and Tuesday) at around $37 or so per night. They are pretty booked up! No idea where we'll be after that.

We left at 10 and got back at 5. These driving days are taking their toll. I'll be really glad to get to Lindsay and stay in one place for a while!
