Riding Shotgun

This is the Wenonah II riding shotgun during last August’s recreation of the historical 100 Mile Cruise that took place on the big 3 lakes, Muskoka, Rosseau and Lake Joseph. I had the pleasure of riding alongside on the Segwun steamship for the 12 hour journey. It was the first time they embarked on this historic cruise since 1958. I hope it doesn’t take another 50+ years to do it again. WenonahShotgun_600

    I grew up on Lake Joseph at my aunt’s cottage. It was named Medora Point.
    I have many great memories of summers spent up there on that beautiful
    lake. She is gone now and I really miss her and Lake Joseph!

    The Historic 100 mile cruise will take place again this year on August 20th, in honour of the 150th Anniversary of The Muskoka Lakes Navigation Company. The RMS Segwun and Wenonah II will both be doing the trip accompanied by 100 boats from the Toronto Antique and Classic Boat Society. The Segwun is sold out but there are still tickets left for the Wenonah II, For tickets call Muskoka Steamships at 1-866-687-6667

    Hi Bill, thanks for the information. I had no idea that they were going to do the 100 mile cruise again. I was onboard the Segwun the last time and it was a lot of fun. Thank you
