Awenda, June 28 - July 1 2013

Hope you all had a wonderful Canada Day long week-end.
We had a restful week-end after our busy week-end last week. Unfortunately I have pulled some muscles in my upper shoulder and I was not up to doing to much hiking. On Saturday we met up with friends and went to Point Severn for lunch and spent some time at the locks watching the boats pass through. We then headed to Big Chute to see how they take the boats out of the water to transfer them into the other lake. That was cool to watch. Saturday evening we drove to Kettle Lake and on the way we came across a mommy dear and her twin fawns. That was special to watch. The rest of the evening was spent in front of the campfire.
We hiked one trail on Sunday but my shoulder was to sore to do much of anything else. Therefore the rest of the week-end was spent relaxing at our campsite. We did see a few special things on the week-end and the photos of them are below.

We had our flag out to celebrate!!!
