The Cliffs and Caves in Tobermory

The Cliffs and Caves in Tobermory

Date visited: September 2015

We took a short weekend trip to explore The Cliffs and Caves in Tobermory. Tobermory is about a 4 hour drive north of Toronto.  It’s a little village on the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula, dividing Lake Huron and the Georgian Bay.

 

Little Tub Harbour is the focal point of the town.  It’s a pretty stroll around the harbour, with a few little shops and cafes closeby. 

Just a 5 minute drive from Little Tub Harbour is Big Tub Harbour, and the home of Big Tub Lighthouse.  We visited a couple of times – the nighttime visit was very peaceful.

We took a glass-bottom boat cruise on the Tobermory Explorer.  We found out that Tobermory is a very popular destination for scuba divers because there are many shipwrecks in the area to explore underwater.

It was cool and windy that day, but the sun was shining brightly.  We cruised around the little islands – the most famous one being Flowerpot Island.  The rock pillars on the island were something to see!  We also took a little ride by the Big Tub Lighthouse.

One of the most popular destinations in the Tobermory area is The Grotto in the Bruce Peninsula National Park.  The caves are fun to explore, and we could not get enough of looking at the turquoise water.

Although short, our weekend getaway to Tobermory was memorable.  We will definitely go back and explore more in Bruce Peninsula National Park.

Sunday Drive in Halton Ontario

Sunday Drive in Halton Ontario

We are aching to travel.  Until parks and campgrounds starting opening up, it’s best to just stay home.  But when it’s sunny and warm and we can put the top down, going for a Sunday Drive in Halton Ontario is just what the doctor ordered.  

So we packed some snacks, put on sun hats and suncreen, put the top down and started up the summertime tunes.  We headed north and drove through quiet country roads.  Nature was green and healthy and in full spring mode.

We ended up in little Waterside Park in Rockwood, Ontario.  A few were fishing in the Emarosa River, and others enjoying the sunshine.  Everyone was spread out quite responsibly.  

Rockwood Conservation Area was close by so we thought we’d head there for a hike.  It was closed through, as we suspected.  We walked through a forested area not far from there.  The official Ontario flower – The Trullium – was in full bloom all over the forest floor.

Driving with the top down is great for looking up and capturing birds soaring in the sky (great the the passenger, that is!).  It’s always fun seeing the farm animals too.

And that’s a little taste of our sunshine-filled day trip.  I hope you too can one day drive through the winding roads of Halton Hills.  You won’t regret it.f  Thanks for visiting our site 🙂
