Lions Head, a charming town on the Bay

Lions Head is a village just south of Tobermory on the Georgian Bay. Don't know why I missed this posting the other day, because we loved this charming village. The cruise to Lions Head was beautiful in itself. The Niagara Escarpment runs from Niagara Falls, across the Bruce Peninsula across the Manitoulin Island to the Door Peninsula. The geological formation is famous for limestone cliffs, waterfalls and forests.

Bruce Trail runs around the Bruce Peninsula and residents and people from around Canada enjoy the trails. We met a couple while we were at the laundromat (!!) who were caught in a rain storm on the trail and were in the laundromat drying their shoes and backpack. A mother bear and cub were walking on the trail and scared this couple into a quiet turn in the other direction!

Such a picturesque village and marina.

When stopping at a marina, we usually unload our bicycles and ride around the town. This field was so beautiful, I had to stop and take a picture.

Dinner at the Lions Head is a must! The food was as good as the Inn was charming. The Inn's history extends to the 1800's.

Poppies remind me of my grandmother's garden. My favorite flower.

The greeters are out in full force.

Yup, it worked!

No stop is complete without a mechanical issue. This was the first run of the outboard and the old gas gummed up the carburetor. Lucky us - a mechanic was nearby.

If anyone wants to help me with this formatting, feel free!
