    Indeed, it looks like a very nice place to live.

    Met a lot of Canadians over the years and I've not met a bad one.

    Cheers! Yeah we are known as pretty polite people and peacekeepers.
    I'll post more in the future, I am quite busy taking advantage of the summer type weather.

    I guess I'm not overly busy at the moment, and took some photos this past weekend.




    These baby geese were sooo cute, and we were able to get pretty close, albeit not too close the mommy and daddy were watching us very closely.



    I celebrated a bday on the weekend, and really there wasn't much to do, but take a walk and spend time with family and friends (not the ducks and geese )

    True. I've found that the Aussies are the friendliest people in Thailand. Easy going, laid back, and quite humourous. Any people who commonly says to others "cheers mate" is a friendly country worth knowing and respecting.

    The Lake of the Woods is one of the nicest outdoors regions in the world. The posh properties around the lake and the Kenora district in which it is located is a testimony to its beauty. I've been told that the population of the town of Kenora triples in the summer with tourists and campers, many of whom come up from the US. If I could afford to retire there, I would in a heartbeat.

    ^^It is a beautiful area up north..very rugged indeed.

    I got blocked today for ten minutes as I was biking on the bike path by Geese and their babies. They were in the middle of the bike path and took ten mins to move after trying to ring my bell to move them. They held up a few people waiting to get by. You don't dare try to intervene especially when they are guarding their young.







    Mooove.. also shit all over the path.

    Local Lilac tree




    You see a lot of rabbits wandering about near gardens and shrubs.




    Took a few hikes on a trail called Pine Grove Forest. It is one of the nicest trails I've encountered so far in the Greenbelt.

    The Canadian geese seems to like to raise their young within the cities of Canada. Maybe it's the cheap real estate compared to the US? In any case, they seem to think they can take over the town, hissing at anyone coming to close to them and shitting all over the place. I'm told they mate for life. If that's the case, I don't blame the males for being in such a horrible mood all the time. I happened to be cycling near the court house the other day and one was hissing at me for all he was worth. I figured the judge just threw out his appeal for divorce and he was letting everyone know how pissed he was.

    I'm amazed MM got as close as she did to snap them.

    Ruddy evil fookers when they're with their gaggle of Gosling's.

    Thanks KW, Joe and for the greens as well!

    ^I know, I guess I am a bit of a risk taker..haha. Actually with experience, I know how close to get, because like you and Elche say, these can be nasty buggers if you get too close. They can peck you to death. Yes, I agree, they are a nuisance. They are all over the bike paths in certain areas/parks. Today as well on my 23km bike trip, I had to wait a bit, but today instead of waiting (frustrated by yesterday's incident), I just biked through them and they moved quite fast. As they had no young today, I decided to just bike up close and they moved very fast. Luckily they didn't attack.
