Blueberries and Bears


Lots of Blueberries


Bears are not easy to find
they can hide behind the ferns 


but waiting for a better picture


and a long camera lens


the bear was way more interested in the blueberries
then in us

Algonquin 2 Sunset at Pog-Lake


The first sunset at pog, pretty but not spectacular 


next day was so much rain we didn't expect anything


in fact it was still raining when this glorious sunset started


the sky was full of damp coming off the trees after a very wet day


the next day was a very sunny day


but sunset was kind of disappointing

Algonquin 1


Last week we saw some potential for a vacation
so I booked for 1 night in Canisbay hoping to extend our stay
It was so busy we had to move to Pog Lake
and there was only one site available there

when you see man with speedo swimsuit 
you can almost start talking Dutch to them



On Tuesday we hiked Centennial Ridges, 10.4km


past a beaver dam



very muddy in places



beautiful views, having lunch up high


so far the only sign of wildlife is Moose poop


view of Whitefish Lake

Buttermilk Falls

Albion Falls

Nice waterfall close to Paramount park
also deep in a gorge

Deck cleaning


Yesterday seemed like a good day to clean the deck


with the high pressure washer

and bleach that needed to be on there for a while 
3 parts water 1 part bleach
when it rained in that time I went out to brush the bleach in


the back siding was cleaned in between



finish the front


looks way different

Emily Sophia


Emily Sophia was born while we were at the wedding




loved by her parents



with a head full of hair
and dark eyes


What a blessing
