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!
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.
