Algonquin Park 2014

3 Oct

We saw a lot of other animals besides me on this trip.  Unfortunately we did not get any descent photos of any of them. Anyways, I was taken aback by the other creatures there; two otters bathing in the lake; a weasel by a log at our site; a flock of ducks; three loons; a bunch of chipmunks who scavenged for food; and a moose, with an impressive rack of antlers, in the water not 40 ft from our canoe!  Following are some of the photos we did manage to take…some of them are of moi of course.

On Our Way…

I enjoy the ride in the bright sun

I really love riding in the canoe, especially in the bright sun…

The sun and the movement of the boat makes me really relaxed.

…the sun and the rocking boat make me really relaxed and sleepy so I close my eyes.

The people were nice enough to put the yoke pad on so I could have a chin rest.

Here I am sleeping, using a paw as a chin rest.

Improvising: Here I am using a paw as a chin rest since the yoke pad was not around.
