TRAVEL DESTINATION

Killarney

e're aboard Attigouatan, a Pursuit 2260 that normally lives life as a friend's cottage boat, running
back and forth from dock to dock. This will be her
longest run in four years, travelling the approximately 120 kilometres (80 miles) northwest from Parry Sound to Killarney,
threading our way through the northern reaches of the stunning
30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay's eastern shoreline.
Her name evokes an early indigenous name for Lake Huron
- Spirit Lake. And on this July day, Attigouatan has surely summoned those spirits as we head out to the wide-open bay north
of Bayfield Inlet. An eerie, dense, and disorienting fog greets us,
shrouding our journey, surrounding us in waves of white, creating oddly haunting and distorted sounds. We marvel at the mists
and I am reminded for the hundredth time that Georgian Bay
never fails to work her mystic magic creating memorable
moments every time you venture out.
Despite a malfunctioning compass, thanks to modern electronics and experienced navigation, we have little difficulty finding the marks - the welcoming red appearing as expected out of

the fog and on the correct side of the boat.
It is an odd day as each offshore run remains cloaked in
whirling white while the inner portions of the journey, like
Beaverstone Bay and the gorge of Collins Inlet, are basked in
brilliant sunshine and blue skies.
It is all part of the fascination for boaters who immerse themselves in the ever-changing beauty of the bay.
Once we clear Collins Inlet we pick our way slowly around
numerous kayakers on the foggy four mile run across the top of
the bay. It isn't until we're well inside Killarney Channel, past
the East Light at Red Rock Point, that the town magically materializes out of the persistent fog.
If it has been awhile since your last visit, you may be surprised
by some of the dramatic changes taking shape here, such as the
magnificent log conference centre currently under construction.
It's all part of a focused rejuvenation of this popular cruiser
destination as Holden Rhodes, owner of several Killarney lodgings, breathes new life into the town with major renovations and
expansions to several iconic facilities.
