Since I last posted, we spent a wonderful few days at a friend's cabin in Canada.  He has owned the place for about twenty years and has done a lot of work on it.  To get there, we drove a total of about 14 hours to get to the boat landing, then another 5 miles by boat.

As we were driving the last leg of the trip, we saw a moose running down the road ahead of us.  It finally ran off into the bush.  I guess that moose are normally seen at night, but this one was right out there during the afternoon.

A couple of views from his place.

Here is one of several loons we saw.

These are mergansers.

Every morning the lake was as smooth as glass, so there was a beautiful reflection of the trees in the water.  As the day went on, the lake got a bit of motion to it, but not much.

A couple pictures of some small wildlife.

We also saw a caribou the first day, but the picture I took is from a distance and unfortunately is blurry. 

The weather was just gorgeous the whole time we were there.  It was so peaceful and serene that I felt like I could have stayed all summer.  However, after a few days, we were on our way back home.

On the way back we saw another moose running right down the highway.  Fortunately, it ran off before traffic from the other direction came along. 

We also stopped at a falls on the Kaministiquia River.  It was amazing; I could have watched that water thundering over the falls all day. 

This is a picture of the river looking downstream.

So now we're back home and catching up on weeding the garden and cutting the grass, but still remembering the wonderful time we had.
