2012 Steam Cruise on Lake Muskoka

On Tuesday 17 July 2102, a small group of us met in Gravenhurst, Ontario (about 380 kilometers/235 miles west of Ottawa) for a dinner cruise on Lake Muskoka aboard the steamship Segwun.

The Segwun, shown moored beside her sister ship the Wenonah, is the oldest surviving steam powered ship in North America.
