Right - Looking north along Hwy 6 from Carlton Street in Tobermory. Note the unusual Hwy 6 sign at right, with the "through" arrow. This sign was presumably placed at this intersection for additional guidance, since Carlton Street carries one-way traffic (westbound) from the Tobermory Ferry Terminal. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Tobermory's Little Tub Harbour is home to the Chi-Cheemaun Ferry to Manitoulin Island.

See an Enlarged Photo here.
