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
lots of people were down but we didn't see a legal way to get there

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
