“Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?” My number one childhood dream was to be a mermaid, or at least swim “under the sea,” exploring shipwrecks and collecting treasures like Ariel from The Little Mermaid. My collection would certainly not be complete until I visited Tobermory, Ontario, with a set of mermaid tails, goggles, and oxygen tanks. Known as the “8th wonder of Canada,” Tobermory is home to 22 well-preserved shipwrecks that can be explored in glass-bottomed boats or scuba diving or, in my case, mermaid-ing. Its cool waters would be especially perfect for the sweltering summer heat. But the adventure wouldn’t stop underwater. Tobermory has numerous campgrounds, nature sites, and lighthouses that beg to be camped in, hiked in, and climbed. It would be the perfect place for me to unplug, soak in the pristine wilderness, and let my imagination roam. Tobermory is teeming with treasures and tales to discover, and though it will for now remain but a dream, it is a sweet dream, and well worth savoring.
