My daughter and I will set off this coming Tuesday on a 4.5 hr. road trip and 1.5 hr. ferry ride to Manitoulin Island to visit and stay with a friend who owns a small farm there. Our plan is to stay for 9 days, but we can stay longer if we choose.
Quote:Manitoulin Island offers many activities, programs for travellers and special events to take part in. But it also offers the opposite – a place to escape to, a place where you can intentionally set out to get lost, have your own unique experience with the beauty and nature the Island offers, and eventually, you will find your way home. It’s an Island after all. The Heart and Spirit of the Great Lakes of Canada, it is a place of convergence – the mountains with the lakes, the Indigenous culture with the settler culture, the northern eco-zone with the southern eco-zone, and quartzite energy veins with human destiny.
Except for the repeated warnings of lots of large mosquitos, this trip promises new experiences, such as, hopefully, attending an aboriginal pow wow and viewing the wildlife.
And, if we are lucky, we may see the aurora borealis.
