A shipwreck is both tragic and fascinating. At the Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père, I learned all about the tragedy of the Empress of Ireland. Did you know it was the worst shipwreck in Canadian history? The Pointe-au-Père lighthouse station is also very interesting. But the high point of my visit was boarding the Onondaga submarine. I even spent the night there!
