King's Landing - Municipal Wharf

The municipal wharf (the former Government Dock) on Memorial Drive is named King's Landing after a former municipal politician. As it states on the sign:

Donald E. King
"A Man of His Word"
Don King served his country as a war veteran and also served our community as a capable, committed and conscientious Reeve, Councillor and Alderman over a 35 year period. He was a staunch supporter of community projects that he believed would benefit the community. His leadership and contribution to the development of this waterfont has left a legacy that will be enjoyed by many for years to come.

Chief Commanda Cruise Sign

Well yesterday we saw the sign for the The Boat restaurant, here's the sign for Georgian Bay Cruise Company's Chief Commanda II boat that now actually plies the water of Lake Nipissing since 1974.

Tomorrow's photo will show why the municipal dock is called King's Landing. Then a couple of days later, the photos of the actual Chief Commanda I & Chief Commanda II.

Oh and if you wondering about the bike path, the Kate Pace Way is on the east side (city side) of the road that hugs the beach. On this section of the path only wheels allowed (ie. bikes, rollerbladers etc.) since the west side (beach side) is reserved for walkers (pedesterians) only!

The Boat - Restaurant on Lake Nipissing

I apoligize for not keeping the photo posts current over the last couple of days but I have been out of town and unavailable to do updates.

I appreciate all the comments and blogger awards that some of you have bestowed upon NorthBayPhoto.

This is another photo taken near the marina. The Boat is a restaurant that is inside the old Chief Commanda. This boat plied the waters of Lake Nipissing from 1947 to 1974. The Chief Commanda was operated by the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission as a service, ferrying freight and people to the Dokis Indian Reserve along the French River (west end of Lake Nipissing).
