The S.S. Keewatin in Port McNicoll, Ontario. If you are looking for a local ghost tour you don’t need to drive as far as Toronto. My sister-in-law’s Father was a part of the group who keep this ship in good repair and run the tours and other public events around it. I haven’t visited it yet so the photograph here is not my own.
I’d like to read the books by Nick Eyles, about Canadian geology. Two of his books are about Ontario history and places to see for the rocks. Road Rocks Ontario and Ontario Rocks. I have always liked rocks, one of the oldest and most enduring things on our planet. Really, is there anything that can top a rock for endurance and long life? I studied physical geography in high school. A lot more than rocks and geology involved in geography but everything involves or stands on rocks at some point. As an explorer of old places I especially like seeing the wear and tear caused by weathering. Bricks, stone, glass, wood are all changed by the wind and rain. One of the things being swept up by wind and water are rocks (sand, pebbles, etc.). Weathering of rocks forms the very ground we rely on. How can anyone not have a fascination with rocks and their history?
Interesting the tunnel was never sealed off. Also, an alarm went off when the migrant came out on the Canadian side. Maybe it will get closed off now. Sarnia won’t want to have someone else go through and make insurance or legal claims against the city.
