  Georgian Bay • The Fresh Water Sea
   
 

 

 
 

About these harsh, barren islands there is an undeniable fascination, possible inherent in the manifest struggle in their line, perhaps in the sense of remoteness and stern resistance to the encroachment of man - a morning of serene calm may change to an afternoon of calamitous seas.

 

It is a region of great beauty and fierce contrasts; it can be stirring or contemplative; it is always provocative...it seems natural that this region would attract adventurous spirits. (Charles Comfort "Georgian Bay Legacy" 1951)
