Ontario Journal - Parry Sound

On Friday we drove over to Parry Sound which is located in the 30,000 Islands in the Georgian Bay. There is a boat called the Island Queen which goes on a 3 hour tour through the islands around Parry Island. Below are only 6 of the hundred or so photos I took there. It was very hard making the choice because the scenery was wonderful. If you ever get into the area, do yourself a favor and take the boat - you won't be sorry.

A small passage between two islands called The Hole in the Wall.


The other end of the passage.


One of the cottages in the islands.


Another cottage - quite a few have no electricity and most need a boat to get to them.


And some have their own airport....

An island has to have at least one acre of land in order to be counted as an island in this region. There are many islets that are not included in the 30,000 count. 

Did I mention listening to the loons calling over our lake late at night? They called off and on for over ten minutes... beautiful.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
