On Saturday the family hopped into the van for a day filled with relaxation, laughter, and surprise encounters! After driving for about two hours with little voices asking "How much longer?" we arrived at Lizard Lake, accompanied by Corrina and Russ (the girls mom and her finace). We then quickly pulled out the fishing rods, pulled down the kayak, and pulled in the fishes! The first to pull in a wee trout was Alyssa, quickly followed by Thalia, and much later Heath captured his own. Samantha, and the rest of us didn't have as much luck, actually we didn't have any luck!
After a little fishing, a couple trips in the kayak we had a roasted hot dog lunch and just time to relax. On the way home we spotted a 'point of interest', which turned out to be a Giant Spruce. We just had to get a photo of the girls along side of this most magnificent tree. Only just after driving a little more we came upon our surprise encounter........ It was a beauty of a black bear. Heath quickly jumped out and caught the bear on film.
As for laughter the day was filled with it, as well as the back of the van on the way home, as evident in the photo.
