Amherst Island and Algonquin Park – All in the same Week!

This past Monday we got up at 5 a.m. as we had decided to go to Amherst Island, just a change for us. It’s about a 45 minute drive to the ferry and about a 20 minute ferry ride.

We drove around the island for a couple of hours, it was nice to get out somewhere different. We didn’t see too much, I was hoping to see a fox but we did not. We did see hawks, deer and wild turkeys. I do love the turkeys although these guys were too far away to get any photos. So not too many photos, actually I just have a deer photo lol. Well there is always the next time.

This past Tuesday, we got up even earlier (why do I torture myself lol) we were up at 430 and off we went to Algonquin Park. It was about a 2 1/2 hour drive but we had our coffee and muffins, packed a lunch, had our podcasts to listen to so we were good to go.

We did not see any Moose unfortunately but we did see a couple of ducks, wild turkeys, grouse and lots of birds. They still have anywhere from 15-30 centimeters of snow but lots of areas had none so spring is coming. We did walk a bit, down Spruce Bog Boardwalk trail and we also walked to the Cascades. So here are a few photos I took along the way.

So not a bad week, so far, I wish to have seen more wildlife but we have a lot more days to do that.

Take care and stay safe.
