This is World Labyrinth Day. Labyrinth walkers throughout the world will “Walk As One at 1” (local time zone); with your feet, your fingers, your eyes or in your mind!

The only labyrinth in the area (that Wawa-news is aware of) was one made by Jim and Deb Sanders at Michipicoten Harbour before the flood. It was a Chartres style, 72 feet, mowed grass labyrinth overlooking Michipicoten Bay.
