Talk About History
This weekend Crystal and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary, and part of the festivities included a ride on the Miss Midland. Now I grew up cottaging in the Midland/Penetanguishine area and had no idea of the history of the area. I found out on the boat cruise that Penetanguishine was a naval base during the war of 1812, Midland was home to Jesuit missionaries in the 1700's, The pope visited in 1984 and 2002 and there are thousands of shipwrecks in the waters of Georgian Bay. It was a really fun cruise, loaded with scenery and some really interesting history lessons. I don't want to spoil it, so if you have a free afternoon and $20, head up to the town of Midland and hop aboard the Miss Midland and enjoy!
