Tobermory Run Construction Woes!


The Tobermory Run has been delt a blow from Highway 6 Construction between Springmount and Hepworth. This South of Wiarton and has no impact on any directions given from Wiarton earlier .

Here is the detour route for those coming north on Highway 6

Bypass around Owen Sound and Highway 6 Construction

At Rockford take the "Alternate Route to the Bruce Peninsula" This is the Grey County Rd. 18 bypass around Owen Sound to Springmount

County Rd. 18 takes a right turn at the lights, follow it.

At the intesection of Hwys 6 and 21 (lights) take Highway 21 West (left) toward Southhampton.

At Alvanley, about 7 miles (11 kilometers) along Hwy 21, turn North (right) on Bruce County #10.

Follow Bruce County #10 will take you through suburban Park Head, then on to Hepworth, where Hwy 6 North can be rejoined missing the construction!

The Tub Tour, June 22nd, 2013

The Tub, Tobermory to those who don't know the local vernacular, is a town on the edge. At the top end of the Bruce Penninsula there are only two ways out. To the north is the Chi-Cheemaun, the floating part of Highway 6 and to the south is the paved portion of Highway 6.

Robert Ockenden

On a mid June Saturday in 2012 Robert Ockenden went to this edge for the Annual Chi-Cheemaun Festival Car Show. Here he found the Austin 7 above, among many other cars at this show. According to Rob it had the best Goodie Bag of any car show.

He wants you all, yes all, to come up June 22nd, 2013! On your own nickel of course. Rob is frugal and can't afford all of you. Rob wants to meet up at Rachel's Bakery and 50s Diner in Lions Head at 10 AM.

79 Main St., Lions Head Ontario

There are two routes to Lions Head, and Rachel's.

The first is to take Hwy 6 north from Wiarton to Ferndale where there is a right turn onto Bruce County Rd 9, then left on Main St. of Lions Head.

The second, scenic, route is on Bruce County Rd 9, aka the East Bury Road, which a right turn off of Hwy 6, just north of Wiarton. This winds through Colpoy's Bay, to become Main St. in Lions Head.

Rachelís is on the east side of Lionís Headís Main St., just next to the Royal Bank. The coffee, tea, and baked goods are excellent. There will be enough time to stop and indulge before heading on up to Tobermory.

The route to Tobermory is is north on the East Bury Rd.to Caudle Side Rd, and back to Hwy 6. From here it is a straight drive to Tobermory, arriving around 12:30 PM. at the Chi-Cheemaun terminal parking lot, which is given over to the car show for the day. Show runs 1:00 PM. to 5:00 PM.

In addition to classic North American cars, there are usually a small number of British classics at this show; Minis, Morrises, Triumphs, Bug-eyes, Jags etc., even an Austin 7, and occasionally, a Rolls.

There is no admission charge!

Last year the goodie bag contained two 'walk-on' return passes for the Chi-Cheemaun, which could be turned in for credit on vehicle fares, a Chi-Cheemaun T shirt, two Chi-Cheemaun lapel pins, two free-lunch tickets, and lots of other stuff! There were also numerous door prizes.

The harbour will be alive with nautical activity!!
