Taoism in relationship to Nature
“We cannot approach nature as a thing to be mastered but as a partner in a relationship. The goal is to become natural part of the original order. The way to discover that original order is to turn to nature.”

COBBLE STONE BEACHES OF GEORGIAN BAY
The white smooth stone beaches are millions of years old. At first glance most people see white sand. They dot the entire shoreline as it weaves along Georgian Bay. If you look close you will find fossils.
Half Way Log Beach, Little Cove Beach, Indian Head Cove
Best time of the year for swimming is mid July, August & first week September. Though it is Caribbean in appearance, it is refreshing like the North Atlantic. The Lake Huron Beaches are sandy and shallow. During mid July and August the water is bathtub warm.
Dorcas Bay/Singing Sand Beach
HIKING ON BRUCE TRAIL
Forest trails & cliff top perches, this trails starts in Tobermory and traverses through the National Park as it follows the Niagara Escarpment for 850 km.
Mother Nature has provided a Gym for the young and younger at heart to play and explore your day away. Be kind and not damage the moss, lichen and rare plants that call this rugged shoreline home. Remember you are touching an ancient coral reef so have fun exploring what was once an inland sea.
SUNRISE – SUNSET
Georgian Bay faces the east hosting some of the most spectacular sunrises. Halfway Log, Cliffs at Indian Head Cove or Dyers Bay allows for that ‘end of the world’ feeling as a new day comes alive. Lake Huron on the opposite side of the peninsula facing west features the giant orange orb as the day comes to a close. Sunset Park on Cape Hurd Road, Lighthouse on Big Tub Road and the Gap at the end of Hwy 6, allows for that stillness as many stand in salute to day.
