Vacation 2013 – Part 19 – This RV site is for the Birds!
After a great night in Blairmore, we were up and on the road by 10:15 am. Today was a little longer drive than our last few days as we traveled to Morinville, just north of Edmonton. We arrived, set up the RV and took a quick drive around Morinville and then headed into St Albert for dinner. After dinner we played some cards and then just relaxed. Next to our site is a small pond full of all different kinds of birds and at least one muskrat. We also have a Prairie Dog neighbour. I walked to the shore and took some photos of the birds. There was a Common Loon across the pond and he/she didn’t want to get close to me. The ducks were a little more cooperative. Dale and I took a quick walk around and during our walk the Loon decided to come over and play (I guess the Loon likes Dale better then me, lol). I got a few shots of it and once the Loon thought I had enough, it flew away. It was fun shooting the birds but, our Prairie Dog friend wanted nothing to do with getting some portraits done. Tomorrow is a short driving day as we will stop near High Prairie before getting back in the NWT. Here is a sample of what we saw today. Enjoy, thanks for being around and as always Happy Shooting.
