Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. (That's one of those names you just had to memorize in geography class, isn't it?)
Why was I there? Kid. Competitive sports. But I kept to my resolve to embrace the madness and find something interesting in the odd corners of the province I find myself in. This time it was the Bushplane Heritage Centre.
Let's Go! We used the Norseman as a good model for the visual in the book. They have one there! Visitors can actually climb inside one. So I did. Very cool.
Once inside I realized that I'm not so sure I'd want to actually fly in this or any bushplane, though. I'm a chicken flyer. Getting up close to all the bushplanes really gave me an appreciation for the planes and their pilots. And the props inside the Norseman gave me a chuckle: empty beer cases.Very Canadian.
We even saw a couple ships at the waterfront, but it really was the wrong time of year to see much activity there.
