We booked a king bedroom with a very small balcony on 2nd floor which was little away from the restaurant; so it was less noisy.
Walk-able distance to the Tobermory downtown area (for restaurants, coffee shops, ice creams) Not too far from Light House point and a short drive to catch the ferry to Flowerpot Island.
Restaurant was bit pricey but worth spending a romantic sunset dinner.
NOTE: no fridge, no coffee machine and no hairdryer no breakfast :(
Room will smell old and I would recommend to take own towels.

... we again found northwest winds that didn't die until late afternoon. Then we had fog until just before we arrived at Tobermory.
We plan on a 40 mile run to Squaw Island tomorrow with light winds. We'll see.
If you are wondering about Charlie, he is doing great. He has even learned to poop and pee on the square of sod that I brought along for that purpose. He's a good sea dog!
... us up and dropped us back off in Tobermory, we headed to Bruce Peninsula National Park to go hiking out there. Surely we would sleep well after today! This hike was awesome! We followed the markers on the trees for just over 4 kilometres, through the forest and over rocks. Needless to say it was beverage o'clock by the time we finished!
Before heading onto our next destination in the morning, we first went to Little Tub lighthouse, although we had seen this from ...
... the pub and tonight it is packed. We are lucky enough to get a spot right next to the fire so we're nice and toasty. There is a Harley Davidson crew that has taken up a huge table and they are a happy bunch, probably happy to be some where warm and not riding in the cold. We cheers to our last night in Canada and reminisce on the past couple of weeks.
The time we spent with our family was memorable, late night chats, introductions to peanut butter ...
... and tourists alike!
There are lots of peaks at the water of Georgian Bay—and in the sunshine it was stunning. I have taken some pictures that are posted, but they do not capture the turquoise beauty of the water, and its clarity. I tested the temp (by hand) at a roadside park—chilly!! But early in the day on Friday, there were already families enjoying the sand and sunshine.
The little towns along the way ...
... The water is SO clear - it's like Mediterranean! There are lots of wrecks in this area - they advertise it as diving capital of Canada!!
There is such a diversity of habitats here - swamp, woodland, rocky barrens & sand dunes! We enjoyed seeing all the flowers, there are 40 species of orchids found here - we only saw a few.
