Shawn and Charlotte just returned from a quick vacation in Venezuela. Spectacular photos of beaches and oceans in the most incredible shades of blue, fishing boats bobbing at anchor, and seagulls lined up in rows sprinkled their vacation photos.
This week, they put the South American summer behind them and came to Bondi for a little R&R to help them recover from their vacation. Shawn was a little taken aback to find we still had snow, especially on the northern slopes. Undaunted, they snapped up our Park Pass and headed into Algonquin Park. Where they found something you'll never see on the beaches down south.
All winter the moose have been 'making do' with nibbling on twigs and buds. Pretty meagre pickings for the big fellows. Spring brings them out to the edge of the road, hungry for salt and the burst of fresh vegetation.
This bull is just starting to grow his impressive rack of antlers, the palms sprouting from his head like serving platters. He wasn't the least concerned with being in a photo shoot with Charlotte.
In April and May, you are almost guaranteed to spot moose while driving through Algonquin.
Later, while the couple were enjoying some quality time together on top of Lookout trail, they were startled to find themselves joined by a Golden Eagle lifting past them, riding the thermals up until he vanished from view.
Thanks so much for sharing your photos with us!
