Saturday was a busy day as we wanted to go to the Visitor Center, hike the Lookout Point Trail, drive to Snug Harbour and spend the evening relaxing at the fire. We were able to accomplish all this and I was able to take a walk on the beach before supper while Duncan put his feet up at our campsite.
We saw a MOOSE at the Visitors Center.....lol

1 of 20 thousand Beech Trees that have been cut down in Killbear Park due to disease
which leads the trees to snap from decay before it looks like they are even sick.

Sunday was another beautiful day and we drove into Parry Sound to check out the sights there. We stopped at the main harbour and drove up to the tower that looks over the area. On our way back to camp we stopped at the general store to check it out. We then hiked the Twin Points Trail before heading back for a rest. Before supper we took one last tour through the park to see what we could see. The rest of the evening was spent relaxing in front of a roaring fire.

It's amazing how mesmerizing a camp
fire can be
Life was busy at the campsite also. We had a few chipmunks that visited but the exciting thing was a pair of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers that were working on a new home. I was able to get many photos as the male worked away on the nest in the tree. There was another male that wanted her attention but her mate kept him at bay.
Chipmunk has his hole at our campsite
I'll close my eyes and she won't see me.......
