I want to drive to Tobermory/the Bruce Peninsula very soon and stay... maybe a few days (will be by myself...). Is this enough - from a photographers perspective?

Seems that Tobermory has lots of great sights to offer, but seems a LOT of the great shots come from Bruce Peninsula park...

Can you drive anywhere in the park, or is it all hiking? I am not going to have my bike (it's a road bike anyways...) and I don't particularly want to hike everywhere all day with all my gear...

So, is getting around going to be any issue? Any MUST SEE areas?

Tell me everything I might need or want to know!!! :)

I was in Tobermory for a few days last September and I had a great time. My wife and I did do quite a bit of hiking in the park and while there were more trails to hike we found 2 nights/3days to be enough. Are you going to be camping or are you going to stay in a hotel?

Not sure if your interested or not but Tobermory is a great spot for star gazing so if you want to try your hand at some astrophotography it's an excellent place with very dark skies. So bring your tripod.

As far as must see places, I guess it depends on what you like and if your willing to do some hiking.
There is a under water cave formation called the Grotto that is very popular but getting some good shots of it can be tough as there is usually lots of people in the way.

We also took a glass bottom boat trip to Flower Pot Island and it was nice and had some cool rock formations coming out of the water

Here's a couple of shots from our visit.

Hi, I was wondering if you had your trip after all? My wife and I booked 4 nights of camping. We're obviously going to do the main tourist attractions but I found a few spots in a hiking book that do not seem to be half bad either (some caves, canoe, point of views...)

Would you happen to have some shots to share?

Thanks!
