Tuesday July 21, 2009-Trip to Honey Harbour

I had a nice walk this morning on the trails that are part of the park.

Trail

Lots of tree roots on the path


Here are some photos around the park.

Pretty site but no hope of satellite here!



After breakfast we decided to drive to Honey Harbour and see if we could find any RV parks. Here is a photo of Honey Harbour.

Samuel de Champlain arrived here in 1615 in his canoe.

We had no luck with campgrounds at Honey Harbour so we drove to Port Severn. Here's the information centre where we had a picnic. No luck with campgrounds there either. Too many trees or no big rig sites.

We drove to the lock #45 at the head of the Trent-Severn Waterway. The lock is full.


The doors open...

And away go the boats!

I thought these flowers were pretty against the brick wall.

We're frustrated and disappointed with rv parks in this area. Apparently several have sold out to golf courses and such that will give the area a greater tax base. They don't want rv parks here because of all the sewage but then you look at all the boats in the harbours. Where does their sewage go?

So, we've decided to abandon the Georgian Bay area and head inland. Stay tuned....
