Day # 2:
Breakfast of veggie omelets with cheese, coffee and Baileys.
We got up a little late and didn't start again till 11. First we had to cut the food bag rope and leave a couple of meters hanging in the tree due to the fiasco of the night before.
We traveled about and 1 11/2 hours and rested on the trail. Socks off, kitkat and cookies and realized that the lake we planned to have lunch on was the one we saw a ways back from quite a high spot. This was not a topo map with a scale of 1:50000 that we were used to. Not nearly as detailed.
Along the trail we took notice of a beaver pond when I stated to Lori that my eyesight is pretty bad lately and that I thought that dark thing near the back looked like a moose. Lori looked and said that dark thing just wiggled it's ears. It was a moose!. We stalked it for a while with our cameras till we had some pretty good shots.Up closer, he looked like he was losing his winter coat as he was neither brown nor grey, but mottled.
Our campsite this night was gorgeous! The perfect firepit, pretty shoreline, many places for a tent and a outcropping point for exploring.
Dinner was Bisquick pizza with peppers, onions, pepperoni and cheese. Lori gets all the credit for this dinner. Hot chocolate and talking with the loons after dinner, although I'm sure it was my attempts which convinced them to leave our lake altogether.
This night I awoke to a Barred owl's call off "Who cooks for you" right near our tent.
Oh ja, and we were much more successful in hanging the food bag so we had lots of time for conversation around the fire.
