I can see clearly now.....

Yes, I can.....and to celebrate, we (Hubby, Daisy and I) decided to go North to Gravenhurst for a trip on the Steamship Segwun.

The R.M.S. Segwun was originally used as a mail boat, and it ferried passengers, freight and the mail to all of the Muskoka resorts that weren't serviced by the railway.

It was lovingly restored by steam enthusiasts in the 70's and in 1974, began it's life as a heritage steam cruise ship. Here's Hubby posing (wearing Oslo) before we boarded for our Thanksgiving cruise.

(Wondering where Daisy is? Well, while we were on the cruise, she was at the Muskoka Day Spa for Dogs in Bracebridge!)

The Wenonah II was built following the style of the old days, but with all modern conveniences (like air conditioning and an elevator) and joined the fleet in 2002.

Today, we were on the Segwun, and the two ships were both out on the water at the same time.

It's amazing the narrows that they squeezed through! The leaves have turned and I think are past their best, but it was still a lovely day to be out on the water!

We had lunch in the smalll dining room in the bow of the ship.....you can see the windows at the pointy end of the boat here. Lunch was a turkey dinner -- complete with stuffing, gravy and cranberries, with pumpkin pie and whipped cream for dessert - yummy!

Here we're back, and both ships are at the dock -- you can see how much bigger the Wenonah II is -- it carries 200 passengers, the Segwun - 99. I'm wearing Gerda -- I love this sweater!

It was a fabulous day!

OK - time to get back to knitting - right!
