A couple of photos

We went to the Salmonier Nature Park on Sunday, under the principal that if a family is going to be sick and miserable, they may as well do it outside. (John drove, which might give you an indication of how rotten I was feeling, as he hates to drive on the weekends and I love driving.) We had a pleasant time and made it home without bickering or tears or death.

There were quite a few animals missing or not out in their enclosures. The "missing" list included:

Interestingly enough, they had a pair of red foxes break into the enclosure during the winter and the park folks suspect they may be denned up in there somewhere with a litter.

As usual, we didn't see:

Due to the presence of a thunderous Katherine, we didn't see any snowshoe hare either. One of these days I'm going to go alone and first thing in the morning, just before feeding time. If I followed the food wardens around, I'm sure I'd get some better photos.
The woodchuck was a new addition. They're native to Labrador, but not to Newfoundland. Curious little things. Haven't seen any since I was in western Canada.


There were enough fiddleheads to satisfy even a New Brunswicker's appetite for the things, although we didn't pick any. The one above is almost finished unfurling, but there were plenty more that were still in the tasty stage.

    Be happy to send you a ‘chuck or twenty….destructive little blokes…..

    Love the photos tho….

    Hope your weather is better than Nova Scotia’s….my dad says it has been cool and rained every day since he arrived 5/25. It’s both an adjustment for him culturally and climatically after Palm Beach, FL.
