The foliage is changing colours slowly, the loons are all gone south unfortunately, but I spotted a bluejay, and of course there are the littly guys, the chipmonks, that my father-in-law spoils with seeds.
Despite the rain (this is the view from the porch of the cottage) we went to Kejimkujik National Park, where you can do canoing, hiking, biking, camping and learning about the first nation people. There is an exhibition of the Mi’kmaq’s crafts in the visitor centre, like birchbark canoes, tools, baskets. And there are local birds and animals exhibited, for example a loon. 😊 When they swim, you cannot see the body, only the neck and head and a bit of the back.
There I’ve found these warm mittens made of old sweaters. You know why I had to buy a pair, don’t you? It took a while to choose the most beautiful pair. And of course I had a little chat with the lovely lady there.
All the best to you!
