"Our holiday - it was fabulous!"
I have a job to put into words the way we felt about our holiday - it was fabulous! I suppose we were a little apprehensive about doing a fly-drive to a country we have never been to before, but everything had been worked out to the finest detail. It started with receiving the Itinerary received two week before our holiday, to the minute we arrived home. Our only problem was reminding each other which day we were up to!

Today you will drive through the picturesque Bruce Peninsula to Tobermory before boarding a ferry for a 2 hour cruise to South Baymouth on Manitoulin Island.
