Life in the Wild Kingdom

Another visit from a different bear. I know this one is different because the ear tags are 2 colors, & there were no cubs. He came by himself, & must've either liked nasturtiums or there may have been a few stray seeds left from the last raid. He stood up & looked at the window, but the camera wouldn't cycle fast enough to get the shot.
Below is a moose in our neighbor's yard. He was there when we pulled in the driveway last night. He looked a bit like Bullwinkle, I wonder where Rocky is.
Today we took Aunt Ethel's bed & some of her belongings to the Assited living Home. Tomorrow she will be discharged from the hospital. After that we went & visited her, & told her where she would be going. She seemed to understand, & said it was ok. We stayed for her dinner, she ate well, then we left & picked up sandwiches at Subway.

We took the sandwiches, & went to Beluga Point, & parked & had a car picnic. I took several pictures there, of the wind swept trees, & an eagle floating on the wind, but unfortunately, I accidentally deleted the images after loading them into the computer. Guess we'll have to go there again.

Golly Deb, you certainly have some strange wildlife visitors.
Do hope Aunt Ethel settles into her new surroundings happily.
Cheers Alison.

I hate it when I delete the photos accidentally! I finally bought an undelete program to save my bacon.

Here's hoping Auntie E thrives in her new home.

What fun! Since moving back to the city, the most exciting wildlife we see are hawks and coyotes.

EEK! I'd be scared stiff to have bears around. The moose is cool, though.
