Spring 2005 Pinery Provincial Park

May 26, 27 and 28, 2005

This past few days Thursday, Friday and Saturday we were at Port Franks and toured the Ausable where it runs through the Pinery Provincial park and it was really nice. Thursday we paddled from close to Grand Bend to our friend's cottage near Port Franks which was 7.2 miles and it took us 3 hours. Lots of good scenery and clean water and wildlife. Friday we had our friends Eric and Mary with us and we saw up close a large beaver that did not seam to be afraid of us and Maureen took many photos which I will post soon on my website. Saturday Maureen and I went back to an area on the river where we saw a large Bald Eagle on Thursday and this time we were prepared with our camera and we were able to get some shots but did not get as close as we did on Thursday when we did not have the camera. We will be trying to capture that Eagle again next time we visit Port Franks and it is spectacular and stands about three feet tall.
