Kiss The Ground You Walk On, Canada
The A,B,Cs of how to be a better Canadian
From skiing to snorkeling, Town of the Blue Mountains in Grey County is a vacation mecca.
Photographs, except for the underwater ones at left, are by George Czerny, author
of travel guide "George's Georgian Bay". George's books are available for on-line purchase at the bookstore at www.blurb.com. Underwater photographs were taken by Douglas Czerny in the area of the Mary Ward wreck offshore from Craigleith. Above, that is what remains of the keel and frame timbers of the ill-fated Mary Ward ship. The S..S. Mary Ward ran aground offshore from Craigleith on November 24, 1872 on a calm night. However, a storm arose, and battered the stranded ship. Subsequently, through the years, she was broken apart by other storms and the pressures of winter ice. Georgian Bay has many places which are of interest to SCUBA divers and snorkelers. Tobermory, at the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula, is acclaimed as a "diving capital" on Georgian Bay.
