Wenonah II, Gravenhurst, Ontario
Yesterday was a beautiful day, the last weekend of the summer of 2010, so my husband and I drove north to Gravenhurst on Lake Muskoka to enjoy this beautiful time of year. While at the Muskoka Wharf eating drop-dead delicious Kawartha ice cream, I was lucky enough to capture the Wenonah II just before it docked.
The Wenonah II takes up to 200 tourists on various cruises in this area.
RMS (Royal Mail Ship) Segwun, North America's oldest operating steamship
RMS Segwun was already at the dock, smoke still emitting from her stack. Smaller than the Wenonah II (she can carry up to 99 passengers), she was built in 1887, originally as a side-wheel paddle steamer called Nippissing II. But in 1925 it was rebuilt and renamed Seqwun, which means "Springtime" in the language of the Objibwa.
