Seen a wild beaver!!

Monday night we ate out in The Laughing Buddha, which we were recommended. It was good, we ate outside on their deck. Very nice pizza. Tuesday night we went out and saw a film with Mike, in the Rainbow Center, it’s their $2 film night. We saw Limitless, which was good and a nice way to spend an evening. It was about 30deg C that day. Wednesday Mike insisted on doing a ‘Whopper night’, he went and got the stuff, burgers, salad and fruit for desert. It was really good!! We’ll probably do it again! Yves showed us pictures of Diavik mine site when he was working there, he had loads of pictures of moose and bears that he’d seen. Thursday night we went house hunting, looked at two places, both apartments, the first just off Regent street, off York street.. nice but nothing special, then the second place on Lorne Street was about a 1970’s, maybe 60’s don’t know.. but it was quirky, and fun, there is a communal room, off which is the room we liked..

Its about 2.1km up the road from work. A fraction further than 92 Hyland drive, which is about 1.9km.

Friday night we went out and played bowling and pool and had a beer or two. Sat we did a bit of shopping and got around a load of random shops that we’d not normally go into, like Lowe’s and Home Depot.. We bought a Baseball and glove and later that evening we went and played catch. Sunday we went to the Fairbank Provincial Park for a walk and a look around, we did the ‘hike’, it took us ages to find the site because we’d not look too hard where it was, but we found it in the end. We saw the Wood pecker that morning, then the loon on the way back from our hike, then a fox crossed the road in front of us maybe half and hour later on our drive back to the highway, then right before we reached the highway there was a water way and I just spotted something in the water, we had cars behind us so I turned at the next safe spot and raced back, and there it was, a beaver, swimming about diving etc, then it just moved off as we took pictures. Then we went to a park near Science North and played catch again and home.

That’s all for folks! (Been watching a bit of Bugs bunny and friends..)
