This past weekend we’ve done many things, including some typically Canadian things. We visited a Nature Park not too far away, where we saw a lot of empty cages. The lynx and mink were on strike, so were the woodchuck and the meadow voles. We did see the moose though, after some other visitor jumped over the fence and scared the poor animal in our general direction.

I’ve bought a new point & shoot camera since the old one was full of dust, I’m still getting used to all the different settings so the pictures may look a little funky. My old camera must have known its time was up, since a few hours ago it stopped working all together (after it was accidentally introduced to the floor, lens-first).

Last night we had a great time at a Canadian Bowling alley. They don’t use 10 pins here but only 5, which are smaller and the balls are much smaller too. At first glance it looks like kids bowling but to be honest I think 10 pin bowling is a lot easier.

Today we started the day with some whale watching, but the only thing we saw were fleeting glimpses of a few minkes. That’s why we quickly turned to a more athletic way to waste time: an abandoned driving range.

This is actually a lot of fun, I think we must have spent an hour and a half shooting golf balls into the range. We had 48 balls when we started and managed to return home with 48 balls too. Now that’s recycling!
