My big adventure
When I was a kid, my parents took us on a fishing trip to Dinorwic Lake in Ontario, where we caught walleye and northern pike. But I most definitely remember seeing the leeches swimming in the water as well. Why are there so many leeches in Canadian lakes?

I don't think I've ever seen fishing with that much intensity.

With the border closure extended through August 21, and with the general covid fuckery in the US, we'll be staying up in the community all summer. I'm disappointed I won't get to see my friends and family this summer, but I do feel significantly safer up here.

My eight-year-old caught a very tiny frog:

Also, they all picked a bunch of berries on their way to the Band Office to get the mail, today:

Maybe. So long as it doesn't involve bugs. She's terrified of them.

Also: this is not the place to spend your summer if you're terrified of bugs.

nature blooms scary in the higher latitudes. Not much time to get the living in Smile
Perhaps this will dull her fears.

Right?! She'll move further south and suddenly the normal-sized flies and lack of black fly season will leave her feeling like she's in paradise.

That's a baby toad. Do NOT keep it in a jar of water as it will drown. Keep it on a bed of moist (not wet) moss and leaves. Feed it tiny insects.

Or you could just let it go free back into the wild into its natural habitat Smile

She let it go after 15 minutes.

We were wondering if it was a toad. When we suggested that, the eight-year-old said "No. It's beautiful. Toads are ugly."
