The two RV Gypsies

Sault Ste. Marie ( pronounced like "Soo Saint Marie") is a city on the St. Marys River in Algoma District, Ontario, Canada. It is the third largest city in Northern Ontario, after Sudbury and Thunder Bay. The community was founded as a French religious mission: Sault either means "jump"or "rapids" in French, and thus the entire name translates to "Saint Mary's Rapids" or "Saint Mary's Falls". Although the word sault is pronounced like "so" (so?) in French, it is pronounced like "soo" (su) in the English pronunciation of the city name. Residents of the city are called Saultites. This is one of the oldest European settlements in Canada.

Below: Across the river is the United States and the city of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The two cities are joined by the International Bridge, which connects Interstate 75 on the Michigan side and Huron Street (and former Ontario Secondary Highway 550B) on the Ontario side. Shipping traffic in the Great Lakes system bypasses the Saint Mary's Rapids via the American Soo Locks, the world's busiest canal in terms of tonnage that passes through it, while smaller recreational and tour boats use the Canadian Sault Ste. Marie Canal.

From this park in Canada, the two RV Gypsies looked across the water and saw the Tower of History in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan USA. Later the two RV Gypsies drove across the International Bridge to Michigan and climbed up the Tower of History and looked back upon this park and water fountain. Those photos can be reached from the sub-menu at the bottom of this page.

Nearby at the Roberta Bondar Park, the two RV Gypsies saw a big bear taking pictures of bears fishing.

And Lee Duquette decided to become the big bear's best buddy and help him do the filming.

Driving around Sault Ste. Marie in Ontario, the two RV Gypsies photographed a few other things that got their attention.
