Honey Harbour Ontario Visited
by Gary McWilliams (aka Festival Nomad)
I had never been to Honey Harbour, but a number of my friends, whose parents boated there, had told me about.
So one sunny afternoon Judi and I decided to take the journey northward and explore Honey Harbour!
I’m not sure what I was thinking, but Honey Harbour was nothing like what I had pictured!
I think I was expecting a larger community with lots of people.
Frankly, the opposite was true.
I think at first I was a bit disappointed.
As we drove into the village’s “downtown” all we saw was strip mall with just a few stores.
However, once we really started to look around, we saw the potential!
Across from the “Towne Centre” was the Georgian Bay Islands National Park.
This was part of the world’s largest freshwater archipelago.
Everything was starting to make sense!
We decided to move on and really explore the community and area.
What we found was a labyrinth of streets, leading to cozy “nooks”
I could now see why so many people gravitated to this area.
Honey Harbour was one of the starting points for for a “journey” into the 30,000 Islands!
All of a sudden I could picture myself sitting in a “Muskoka” chair watch the boats go out to the beautiful “Islands of Georgian Bay“.
“Beware of first impressions!”
