Sault Ste. Marie – a bit of birding

Sault Ste. Marie – a bit of birding

We had spent 4 days identifying bird songs and counting birds as part of  a Breeding Bird Survey and were now homeward bound. We were tired.  A series of early morning rises will do that to you sometimes. Under the circumstances, stopping in Sault Ste. Marie seemed to make more sense than pushing on to Sudbury so, here we were in Sault Ste Marie with plenty of daylight left to explore. The front desk staff at our motel gave us directions to the waterfront walkway and directions for access to islands in the river and off we went, camera and binoculars in hand.

New York City, NY

First time in New York City, NY.

We were a day late due to a vicious snow storm that swept across Ontario the day before, but we were here and, like all tourists, heading for the Empire State Building. Everything is big and tall in NYC even the advertising! Large overwhelming billboards are everywhere and advertising just about everything.

Granville Island, Vancouver, British Columbia

This particular morning, my brother decided that catching the water ferry over to Granville Island for brunch would be a good idea. The ferry arrived and off we went on another adventure.
