Bringing Back the Blog: A Resurrection
OK, I’ll admit it. My blog is stale. My rationalizing to avoid it has been working for a while (family addition, renovations, 500px, and G+, and the desire to produce larger more significant posts). Enough is enough. Time to raise this ship and keep it regular; twice a week is my initial goal. This is a bigger post, many may just be a short story about one or two images. My main goal is to share and have fun with it and not worry too much about stats.
Today’s post is about my trip to Point Pelee National Park in Ontario, Canada. If you like the outdoors, walking, biking, canoeing, or bird watching, this is a really good place to go.
The boardwalk snakes through the marsh providing walkers with great views of birds, fish, plants, and flowers. They also rent canoes allowing you really get out there and get close to the scenery. Canoeing was one of the highlights of the trip, for the whole family.
The boardwalk does a loop and returns where it started, near the lookout tower.
Frogs and other small critters abound here, however the real treat is bird watching.
Point Pelee is the gateway to the north for a lot of migratory birds. Every spring hundreds of different species fly through here on their way to their breeding and nesting grounds. The Fall season also offers good bird watching as the birds head back to their winter homes.
My visit was late Fall, so I didn’t get a lot of bird shots. Maybe next time.
Continuing towards the Tip of Point Pelee, there are nice beaches on both sides. This image is from the East side an a rather windy but warm October day.
My next trip to Point Pelee will be during the Spring migration, and I should have a few more bird photos to share then.
See you next time. Thanks for dropping by!
