The Chi-Cheemaun ferry, at left, leaves South Baymouth harbour on her return voyage to Tobermory, Ontario. Above, backlit by the late-day sun, Chi-Cheemaun heads to the open water of Georgian Bay, which is part of Lake Huron, for a trip that will take about two hours. This popular ferry operates only between mid-May and mid-October. At left, the roadway joins the ramp which allows vehicles access to an opening in the stern of the Chi-Cheemaun. Once loaded, a door at the stern closes and the Chi-Cheemaun will pull slowly away from the dock. After that, she turns in bay and heads west before turning south for Tobermory. The photo at bottom-left shows the museum at South Baymouth. There, many wonderful exhibits await to educate visitors about the history of this part of Manitoulin Island. The museum is easy to find since it is alongside Highway 6 which is the main road away from the ferry terminal. Below, part of the ferry dock area, adjacent to the terminal, where vehicles await to drive aboard the ferry and then sail south to Tobermory. Photos by George Czerny.
"The Chi-Cheemaun" at South Baymouth, Manitoulin Island is just one of the attractions.
