a day at Tobermory

we spent the day in Tobermory yesterday. for those of you who don't live near here, Tobermory is on the tip of the Bruce Peninsula and is the end of the Niagara Escarpment. the Niagara Escarpment is a series of cliffs that extend from Niagara Falls to Tobermory. you can read more about it here :)

the Bruce Peninsula is a cool bit of land that's surrounded by water on three sides... Georgian Bay on the east and Lake Huron on the west. it is pretty amazing for people who like the outdoors. John was in his element. me? i enjoyed the views, but not the bugs. and i kind of missed real flushing toilets ("flushing" with woodchips is just too much on the roughing it side of things for me!).

here are some photos of our day:

the kids and i near the Big Tub lighthouse:

playing in the super waves in Lake Huron. the kids got knocked down by the force of them. thank god John's a strong guy!

on the Bruce Trail (see the white marker on the rock?):

doing a little rock climbing. the water below is Georgian Bay:

can you see John in this photo? to give you some idea of the height of the cliffs, he is 6'8".

i have a gazillion other photos and wish i could share them all! there are more on Facebook (send me a friend invite if you're a regular and i'll add you).

i'll leave you with one more photo. Juliet enjoying one last look from a tall (200ft-ish to the water) cliff of Flowerpot Island before we had to start the 2+ hours drive home:
