Straw chopping

We needed some straw again

this straw is used in the feed

a dusty job

2 bales at the time

It went pretty fast

this pile will last us a while

Algonquin 3

Hemlock Bluff trail, met a group from the USA

they were in the "funeral business"
and joked that we needed a picture for our board

love the sound of the Loon

we had our favourite Ice Cream

we spent quite a bit of time at the beach
we had lots of trees at the camp site so it was kind of dark there

Finally on our last night we saw a Moose

Enjoying the last morning

would have been an excellent time for a canoe ride

Algonquin 2

we went with the water taxi

went past the Cormorant island

to Hailstorm Creek 

a place where a lot of Moose dwell

but we only saw a few Blue Herron

overnight we had rain

due to a large family, they contributed about 20 people,
we still had a decent turnout for church

started at the theater for a canoe ride past Pog to Whitefish 

glad to skip 2 Rivers, there were quite a few waves

Biking at sunset looking for Moose and Bears

We had RAIN

So thankful

even the raspberries look better

35 mm in the last 3 days

The beets have recovered a bit

the soil looks moist

and there are lots of tomatoes to preserve
