My first time going to an Orthodox church
Icons, incense, liturgical worship and lots of candles

For Brynn's chrismation
I'm glad I went

Canoe Lake Tour

Canoe Lake was our start, it's a decent size lake

We did an 1680 meter portage

On the move again

Lunch stop and swim at an interior camp site

We made it before 7PM when our rental canoe was picked up

Wild Blue Berries and the Madawaska

Rien Olga and Marc went down the Madawaska too

At the Mew lake portage I joined them to play in the water

Walking from there I saw this sign of a bear

You know what he has been eating!

A picture from last year, while we are curently in Algonquin

Madawaska River

Rien and I went down the Madawaska river
from 'Cash lake' to 'Lake of two Rivers'
For a few hours we didn't meet any people
There are 4 portages on this part of the river

Lots of bever works; dams and lodges
We saw only 1 beaver, the rest were in hiding

Sometimes we got stuck on the beaver dams

We stopped at this rock and had a nice overview

We were looking for wild life and suddenly saw...

... a Bear it was scary when it looked directly at me

Really,I'm fine....

This cow has a sore leg but she likes to lay down beside the road
flat on her side
people stop and wonder???

But when you get closer she moves and it all starts to look better
