Tim Boleyn went on an adventure with his Rollins for the Boleyn segment and left for Northern Ontario. That destination is making a few stops with Ontario and its first stop was Thunder Bay.
Thunder Bay is known as the outdoor capital of Canada, with so many different things to see on land, water and on your plate.
Tim Boleyn began his tour at the Fort William Historical Park on the territorial land of Enemaki Wajeev. The park is a historic site with guided tours, camping, and events. The park details the relationships that are forged between Indigenous peoples and non-Indigenous newcomers. While there Tim visited the Anishinaabe camp, which is just outside the fort. The Ojibwe people have worked a lot in the fort and traded their work. Everyone gets along and has the common goal of being comfortable. Tim learned to make bannock with Bankshenung.
His next stop took him to Goods & Company for a culinary experience. The old Eaton building in the downtown core is now a market with vendors and an authentic vibe. Some vendors were home-based businesses that needed a location during the pandemic, and everything is thriving in the building. If you’re looking for a place with coffee, beer, food, and local products, you’ll want to visit Goods & Co.
Finally, Tim hits the water with Sail Superior to take him to Lake Superior. On the water you can see the Sleeping Giant, a symbol of Thunder Bay and the tallest cliffs in Ontario. It’s great to walk on water because you never know what water you’re dealing with. You can sail on calm water, or choppy water, so whether you’re a beginner or want a challenge sailing, you’ll probably get it.
Tim had a great time exploring Thunder Bay, and you can tune in tomorrow to see where he’s headed next with Destination Ontario.
