Chi-Cheemaun Ferry to Manitoulin Island: June 7, 2022

I always enjoy being on ships and have worked as a cruise ship naturalist both in the Great Lakes and Antarctica.

For the past 15 years, I have had the pleasure of taking the Chi-Cheemaun from Tobermory to Manitoulin Island in order to run Breeding Bird Surveys in Northern Ontario.

Here are some photos from today:

NATURE POETRY

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note. – Edward Lear
