“The Bruce”

This week, we spent a very pleasant couple of days on the Bruce Peninsula, a long extension of the Niagara Escarpment that separates Georgian Bay from the rest of Lake Huron.  Our weather was sunny and clear, which enhanced the beauty of the crystal clear waters of the lake.

It was a great time for sightseeing; traveling to Flowerpot Island, seeing underwater shipwrecks, birds and flowers. The variety of wildflowers is impressive, and The Bruce Peninsula National Park has preserved areas where there are a wide variety of wild orchids and carnivorous plants. The area has been designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.  More than a hundred years ago, the naturalist John Muir was attracted to the area, by its diversity.
