Our next furry friends are the Mountain Goat family. The little babe was hiding behind mom for a little bit until she peek her cute little face out. These guys were so peaceful and happy to have us wonder at their beauty for a little bit! Alberta is full of so many beautiful creatures! I am so happy they came out to meet us on their visit! I can’t wait to get in the studio after all of this inspiration!
Spent a fun afternoon exploring the HMCS Haida in Hamilton. The Haida is the last remaining Tribal class destroyer (of 27 built). She was commissioned in 1943 and decommissioned in 1963 and has been a naval museum since 1971. In 1984 she was designated as a national historic site. In the 20 years she served she steamed 688 534.25 nautical miles (27 times round the world) and won 5 battle honours. The kids climbed up and down every deck, and found every room and had a blast. We also had the privilege of meeting a navy veteran who served on the Haida during the Korean War. Every kid gets an activity book to fill in, and when they finish 3 activities they earn a free souvenir (foam dog tags and a comic book). This year kids get free admission to any Parks Canada site so this only cost us $4 to visit for one adult! Highly recommend visiting this family attraction! ⭐⭐⭐⭐ #hmcshaida#navy#destroyer#tribalclass#Canada#Hamilton#Ontario#parkscanada#nationalhistoricsite#kids#familyattraction#daytrip#museum#secondworldwar#koreanwar#biscaybay#fightingestship
First national park! And first to complete on my list 🤗 wonder how the other photo turned out 👀 #nofilter needed to show off this beauty right in our backyard 🇨🇦
If anyone is going to Bruce Peninsula I would definitely suggest visiting flower pot island. Even though there are only 2 flower pots on the whole island, the rocks and water are breathtaking and worth it. Schedule the island for the beginning or end of the trip so you don't have to leave the campground for it ^-^
WCT Day 5. So, we may have set up camp a little bit too quickly. When we first looked, it was a perfect pitch, sheltered from the wind and close to the bear bins and outhouse. In hindsight, putting up a tent below the drift wood can cause issues. We found this out at 1am when the high tide sent waves straight under our tent. Thankfully we were woken by the nice guys next to us and we managed to move before anything got too wet. Later that morning we woke up again and started the hike to Camper Bay. 6.5 hours and 12.5kms of ladders, ladders and more ladders. We didn’t notice the trail become more difficult but could see how the sheer number and size of the ladders would slow people down. We managed to pass all the groups that set off ahead of us and were able to get a decent plot to set up camp for the night. 5 days in, we were all a little tired of Beef Jerky and dried food and were contemplating finishing the trail the next day rather than spending the last night at Thrasher as planned. We went to sleep at a reasonable hour with a 5am alarm set but willing to see how the day went. We understood the last section of the trail to be the most gruelling.
Monsoon June is in full effect and took a short 1 week break while my parents came to visit (thanks Mother Nature). So this is from then and not today because it’s been raining off and on for 48 hours.
