The little “I LIKE HOLLAND” on this bag makes me laugh. I got it on one of my visits to see my mom. The game is almost underway and I am already nervous. So silly! But it makes me happy to know that my whole family is watching the very same game at the very same time and hoping for the very best. The thing is, I have been cheering for Costa Rica too. It’s a great country with lovely people, four kinds of monkeys and two kinds of sloths. Lots to love! Good luck to both. I still want Holland to win. Hup Holland Hup!

I am ready for you, Canada Day. Here is a fun fact: every time I pick up Josh at the airport, I do something dumb to greet him. This time I wrapped myself up in these Canadian flags and met him at Arrivals. He went home today after a month in my home and native land (cry cry cry) and now I am decorating my balcony with them. That’s a lot of value for two dollars!

The table is set for a low country boil. Just waiting for our guests to arrive. Looka me! Entertaining like a real fancy.

There was no internet. Just this constantly changing sky. It was not terrible.

When making the reservation for Arowhon Pines, the online form had a section for Special Requests. I said I would like to see one moose. We saw two! A boy and a girl. They were both extremely close, one at a dam about halfway into the camp’s 3km driveway and another on the side of the road through Algonquin Park. We watched the lady moose for a long time because we were in a safe spot and she was happily chomping away on stuff. The man moose didn’t seem bothered either, but I knew I had a highway to cross if he wanted to get closer. I kept my eye on him and not my camera so my favourite photo is a little blurry. Sorry!

Apparently the meeses love to drink the saltier post-winter water in the roadway ditches in May and June so it’s a great time for spotting. I like it! We also saw four foxes total including two kits playing by the side of the road. They were so cute that we barely knew what to do with ourselves. Anyway, between the moose, the foxes, the loons, the chippies, tiny squirrels and hummingbirds… we done pretty darn good.

We spent Sunday/Monday at Arowhon Pines in Algonquin Park. I have never actually been into the park myself but was determined to give Josh the most Canadian wilderness experience I could find in my home province. And so, we drove 3.5 hours north, braved the man-eating bugs and lodged at a grownup summer camp with meals included. It was bliss.
