Saturday, May 31 – Travel Day-Wildlife (Toad River, Canada)

 

We got lucky and it didn’t rain last night. But it did sprinkle about 2am this morning.

Jesse and I went for a walk around the campground last night. It sure got crowded about 15-20 rigs came in after us.

This is a way to RV and boat at the same time.

We have been asked about the sunrise and sunset. It gets light about 3:15am and dark about 10:30pm.

We left this morning a little before 9am with us in the lead and saw a bear within the first 20 minutes.

I didn’t get pictures but I think Bob and Janet did.

Then just few more miles down the road we saw a mother bear and to baby cubs. We pulled over and got lots of pictures.

Then Momma became very interested in B&J’s rig. She walked all the way around it.

The cubs followed her, one crossed the street to the other side while the other wasn’t sure how to get around so it went under Bob’s truck and didn’t want to come out. Momma was getting upset with it trying to get it to follow her. It was like you could almost here her fussing with it to follow her.

Jesse built us a campfire and we just sat looking at the water enjoying the fire. We have decided to stay another night just so we can do nothing but enjoy and relax.
