International Bridge Crossing Ste. Marie river to Michigan

The Canadian Locks

Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre

F-11 Husky That Flew For Island Air, Campbell River

After our ritual morning Tim Horton's; what are we gonna do when we get south of the 49th???; we headed downtown to check out some of the sites of Sault Ste. Marie. First stop was the Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site. From here we had a pretty good view of the International Bridge heading over to Michigan, and also of the massive traffic lineup which cooled out interest in crossing over for the day. The displays were very informative and it was kinda neat to find out that the first lock built at this site was built by the Northwest Fur Trading Company. After a few hours wandering around here we headed over to the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, another place with great displays and some very informative videos. Imagine finding a F11 Husky Floatplane in this museum that spent most of its working life flying for Island Air out of Campbell River! The weather was great all day but just as we entered the RV Park it started to pour! Only supposed to last the night, we hope!
