We had a busy time at the cabin this last weekend with two other families. Six adults, three children, two infants and two dogs staying in two cabins. It was a tight fit but we made it work and the weather was fantastic which kept us outside a lot of the time.

We saw moose, fox, grouse and bald eagles. Rose hips pepper the thinning bush with a bit of colour. We ate so well. Friends brought up their home made smoked and maple syrup canned salmon. It was apparently like candy.

This remarkable little bird flew into a dive under the water while I was at the creek one day. I was fascinated by it’s bold ¬†and excited nature being so close to me. He seemed thrilled in his task. I didn’t know what that task was until he popped up out of the water one time with a salmon egg and gobbled it up!

Turns out he was hungry for salmon eggs

There was tobogganing… LOTS of tobogganing. Reading, guitar playing, group and solitary walking, knitting, chatting…

Do you see the bald eagle in this next picture? It was here a couple days in a row, feeding on dead fish washed up on the beach below where it’s perched.

Here’s a closer up shot of it taken from a bit more down the road.

I took so many pictures (as usual) so I’ll do a second post when I get a few more up! Click on any to see them bigger or more description.

    So lovely. That bird picture is amazing! I think I recognize some of those folks from the skeena swim maybe?

  3. Once again I’m so thrilled that you’re getting out the property so much. I almost feel like I’ve been there myself now too. Thanks again for sharing. L

    Stunning! All of it! And moose have always made me tingle all over – I miss living in a place where megafauna is potential around every corner!!!! just deer here, lots and lots of deer…

    The photos are absolutely gorgeous, Annie. The bald eagle is stunning.

    Wow. Oh gosh I am so green in the gills, what a stunningly beautiful place to be. I LOVE snow, it never snows in Manchester and even if it does there are no hills for sledging. I am so ready to remove my family from the urban grime and move back to the hills… still no moose there though ;)
    I’m so glad you all had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing X

    Sledging! Ha. Sarah, our friend Jo who was with us is also from the UK and says sledging. We’d never heard that before.

    Thanks everyone! We certainly love this property. I’m always open to taking friends… hint hint nudge nudge….
