Isle of Man(itoulin) 2019

Post #1 by Sandy » Sat Sep 21, 2019 9:31 pm

It has been 5 years since a motley crew of NGWer's came ashore on Canada's largest fresh water Island.
viewtopic.php?f=19&t=49139&hilit=isle+of+man+itoulin
I had a few days so thought it was time to revisit Manitoulin Island in Ontario Canada.
Ride on the Chi-Cheemaun from Tobermory to South Baymouth and settling at the same Huronsands Motel in Provedence Bay.
2 days and 450 miles in perfect September weather.
