The water was a little choppy on the ferry ride back.

Last Saturday I took my 4th trip with Authentic Canadian Tours. This time to a tiny island in Lake Ontario, Amherst Island. It was a long, but fun-filled day. The highlight of the trip for us, besides meeting some great people, was seeing our first Northern Saw-whet Owl in the wild. I was so glad we got to experience another owl "lifer" together. I was so touched by seeing this adorable little owl in his natural habitat I burst into tears. It was truly a wonderful sight to see.

I was going to blog about our whole day, but the organizer, Murray, wrote such a wonderful blog about our day, I thought I'd just link his blog here.

And one of the great people we met on the trip captured some wonderful shots, that can be seen on her blog here.

I read the blog post during the week ... sounds like a fun day!

We sure had fun at Amherst. I wonder what it would be like if we did go when there was a couple feet of snow on the ground?
