A little peek at Lake Huron (North Bay)

In Soo we wanted to do a tour of the locks, but the Canadian company wasn't running it's cruises this year. So, we drove over the international bridge into Michigan, and did the cruise from their side of the locks. Was a good day for it, and enjoyed it - staff was very good. Went out into Lake Superior through the larger American locks, had a look at the big Soo steel plant, then back to town through the smaller Canadian lock. From the boat dock we walked next door to a big old freighter now used as a maritime museum, and went all over and through it. The huge holds had been outfitted with floors around the edges to make many levels of displays.

After that, we drove Mr. Sunseeker back across to Canada and walked around the National Historic Site at the Canadian locks, then found our way back to our campground.

The next day, we headed out around Lake Huron and Georgian Bay via Sudbury, and ended up in a WalMart parking lot in a suburb of Toronto known as Milton, where we knew there was access to rapid transit into the city.
