Hi Stoo

Just been reading your thread. Have spent a couple of seasons working on the Great lakes based on Lake St Clair. Did a trip to Macinac then round to Harbor Springs and another to Georgian Bay. Your a lucky bugger, stunning scenery, friendly people, cheap fuel, eh.

We did consider moving somewhere near you but change of circumstances changed the plans !

Nice RIB, keep the pictures coming, eh

It is a great area and being a tourist area, we are frequently reminded of just how nice it is by visitors. We are getting a lot of Europeans here these days. There are a couple of tour companies promoting the Bruce Peninsula as an eco-tourist destination.

In spite of the decreasing amount of boating weather, I love this time of year. The ferry stopped running two weeks ago, so it has become very quiet. (The street in front of my house runs around the harbour. It's posted as being one way, but starting about now, we all drive both ways on it. There isn't enough traffic to warrant the trip around the block!)

In about six weeks, we'll start to see winter... non-stop gales. I'll be packing the boat away by then sadly... That's when I become envious of your baulmy February weather in the UK!

I don't know about our mild weather. I was speaking to a bloke from Alaska and some stunning girls from Canada last Winter and they said that our Welsh weather was far worse than theirs. It's the cold and damp combined with 90mph winds that does it. Much as a dry heat is better than a humid one the same goes for cold.

I lived in Alaska as a kid for 6 months and it was great - also spent loads of time in the Alps climbing. The coldest I have ever been is on the Brecon Beacons. It really gets into your bones.

Remember Stoo we are much further North than you Southerners!!!

True enough... And I don't disagree with you... Our summer weather is very humid here in Southern Ontario... what I meant about your baulmy winter weather is that at least your water stays, well... water!
