  Hi Cydney, Princess, Baby Girl, & Coconut,
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly about the team!
I am so glad all of you would still like to play. Sorry I have not blogged earlier but we have not been blogging too much on BC, except for BOTD/BOTM. We've been busy and have not had as much time on the computer.

We are going to be starting practice next week. I hope you we all come. It will be held at the stadium. I will post my picture on the profile and leave you the page # along with the date and time of the practice.

Hope you're having a good week. Talk to you soon. Leaving a vote for you. Enjoy your evening!

  Day 29--Igonish Surfin' Lessons with Pookie
Good morning everybirdie, Angel Girl here from the warm, sunny Ingonish beach with today's BOTM blog. It is awesome tanning by the ocean, as the waves roll in softly. We have been having a blast swimming in the ocean, and getting ready for a few quick surfing lessons. I'm not so sure on the bird on a board thing, but it sounds like fun, and I know Little Angel, Dixie and Laka are really good at it. Pookie is gonna give us some tips and pointers on how to surf. Should be lots of fun, and he's a real pro.
" Angel Girl, come on, time to take surfin' lessons" Kaji and Lizzie call as they head to the other end of the beach, were a large number of birds are eagerly waiting for Pookie to instruct them on the hows and why's of safe surfin'. Pookie, climbs up on a piece of drift-wood and begins,
"Let's start with the obvious: Surfboards are made to float on the water. They have a natural center of gravity. If you were to lay any surfboard in a swimming pool, it would come to rest the same way every time. This is what we want to do when you lay on a surf board. That is to have the board remain in the same relation to the water as it was without your weight on it, just a bit lower in the water. A good tip is to find this balance point and lay on your board then make a mark right at your beak-tip. This is a spot best made with a bit of wax or a magic marker. It is a reference point that enables you to put your beak on the same spot every time so the board will react to your weight the same way every time."
Everybirdie lays their board flat on the sand, and Pookie and Sky help them make the mark with a red marker.
"Ok, now do not paddle with both wings simultaneously because this will cause the board to speed up and slow down in the water and you will not be able to maintain constant hull speed through the water. Always paddle with the same wing-stroke, one wing, then the other." The birdies head to the edge, place their boards on the water, climb on, and start to paddle. " Now sit up carefully on your board, try not to t..." Too late Hulk, Gus and BB tip their surf boards over.
"Now it's time to learn how to stand up. Lie on your chest, your head up, looking ahead. Put your wings on the board beside your shoulders tips down like you were going to do a push up. Push your upper body up while at the same time you sweep your feet under you, laying them on the stringer, the line down the middle of the board, so your weight is centered along the stringer" Everybirdie keeps trying until they all stand up nervously. "Ok, here comes a wave, let the wave pick up the board, keep your wings out to balance, and have fun" Pookie watches as the others wobble, some fallin' others keeping their balance,and a few cheat and fly off their boards into the air.
"WOW, this is greyt" LA yells to Dixie
"WEEEEE almost as good as in Hawaii" Dixie grins, keeping his board smoothly moving on the surface.
"AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" SPLASH" Sky wipes out into the water sputtering

  Day 28--Ingonish day 1
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. I apologize for the lack of blogs the last few days. My typist, Momma Deb was devastated by the loss of our beautiful Cockatoo fister Angel Sassy. It left her lost for words, and I hope that you all have understood. Today we continue on our Cape Breton Tour. Thanks to Ms BB who lead the trail ride to Ingonish, Cape Breton Island, we can now begin to explore, this majestic gem of nature together.
On the east side of Cape Breton Highlands park is located Ingonish. Know for it's fabulous Keltic Lodge resort a world-class 18-hole golf course designed by Stanley Thompson. Golf Magazine ranked it as one of the top 100 courses in the world and the best public course in Canada. George Knudson suggested leaving your clubs behind and just walking the course. The course has been certified by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, a program aimed at conserving wildlife habitat in spaces used for other purposes.
The Park area is made up of a mix of Acadian forest of deciduous trees such a Maple, Ash and conifers, mainly at lower elevations. Boreal Froest is found on the plateau and upland areas. Moose, black bears, coyotes and Bald Eagles are the main wildlife inhabitants to this area. Northern Gannets can often be seen from the park's coastal hiking trails, e.g. the Skyline Trail. The park's forests provide habitat for the uncommon Bicknell's Thrush. The Gaspé Shrew, the local name for a smallish variety of the Long-tailed Shrew, Sorex dispar, can be found on rocky slopes in the park. The first nest records of Boreal Owl for Nova Scotia were found in the south west corner of this park
There are many activities to do when visiting this Cape Breton Highlands location. Some of these activities include camping, hiking, sightseeing, swimming, fishing, geocaching, cycling, golfing, picnicking, weddings, kayaking and surfing There are endless swimming options available for all ages in the park. There are five main salt water ocean beaches . The ocean beaches include Ingonish Beach, North Bay Beach, Black Brook Beach and La Block Beach. The two freshwater beaches include Freshwater Lake and Warren Lake. Freshwater Lake and Ingonish Beach are both supervised with a lifeguard during the summer months.
" Come on Angel Girl, let's go swimming" Little Angel calls through the tent door, " it's gorgeous outside today, and maybe we can try some surfing later"
"Oh, ok, give me a few minutes to find my bikini" Angel Girl giggles at her fister's eggcitement about life and having fun.
"Dixie" LA calls, " We're goin' swimming." Little Angel hurries to find Dixie and her beach towel
"You think Pookie will help us learn to surf?" Hulk asks as Little Angel rushes past,
"He is already on the beach getting ready for lessons after lunch" Chyna adds checking her feathers in a long mirror the girls bought in Cheticamp.

  Hi Cydney
Mom drives about 20 miles to get to the vet for us. The dog vet is down the hill, she can be there in 5 minutes. She keeps telling him to hire an avian person, but he just increases his staff with small animal people for dogs and cats, mostly.
Mom got to do the RVS room today, and it's really emptying out. There are only 3 raccoons in there. The one was super friendly, and kept trying to touch mom, then when she didn't respond, he started screaming. It brought 2 staff members and 3 volunteers to the door to make sure everything was okay. Mom laughed, and said she was pinching him from 4 cages away! (She was cleaning out his old cage when he started to make all that noise.) Since she finished that room so quickly, she did some dishes, folded some laundry, then went into the office to file charts. She had done some on Monday, but the basket of things to be filed was full again.
After the center she went to the bank to deposit a property tax refund. She wasn't sure if it would come this year, or if they would take it off next year's taxes, but she was sure happy to see it.
Yesterday mom got some sewing done, and today she will do more, if there is time. She is thrilled to be able to do that again!
I hope you are having a wonderful day, getting sunshine, scritches, and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

Hey sweetie! Just wanted to let you know that I won't be going to the Milonga tomorrow because my parronts have been invited to a dinner party tomorrow night. I asked Panther if you could go with them....but they aren't sure if they will be at the Milonga either.
Well, I think we missed the summer window for our get together. Time just got away from us...but that's ok. It's still going to be in the high 70's so I don't know.
Well sweetie, hopefully the sun will come out today and we can go on the boat. I'm sick of this cloudy rainy weather!!!!
Much love to my sweet girl,

  Hi Cydney
It's another gorgeous day here in Verona, with the sun shining, no rain in sight, and predictions of 70s today. I went to the vet for my follow up appointment this morning. My leg has no more scab on it, and my side is healing. There are even some new feathers growing in! And I've gained 5 more grams, so I'm back to 130g, like I should be. Mom was really pleased, and so was I. She is now going to make well bird appointments with this vet for Willie and Peppino, so she can get some base lines on them, but probably not until she gets back from Parrot Palooza.
Happy birthday to Jim Henson in memoriam today, we LOVE the muppets! Mom's favorite line from Miss Piggy was, What do you think has more calories, this lighter than air eclair or this 5 pound head of cabbage?
I hope you are having a fantastic day and getting lots of love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

  Day 23--Whale watching and scuba diving Part 1
Hello, Angel Girl here in Pleasant Bay, Cape Breton. Rising early before sunrise we ate a little breakfast of pancakes, scrambled eggs and my favorite toast with Peanut Butter. As the sun began to smile over the water, we were already riding down the winding trail into Pleasant Bay where we are scheduled to join Captain Mark. The types of whales we will most likely see are Pilot, Finback, Minke and Humpback. Occasionally we also might see Atlantic White-Sided Dolphins, Basking Sharks and shy Harbor Porpoises. We'll even hear these magnificent creatures sing along with our hydrophone!
If we are fortunate we might also see Gray and harbor Seals lying out on secluded rocky outcrops. Other common residents of the rugged shore are: Bald Eagles, Black Guillemots, Northern Gannets, Double Crested Cormorants, Common Mergansers, Moose and Black Bears.
" Good mornin' mateys" Captain Mark calls as he sees us arriving at the docks. leaving our horses hitched in the shade along a rail installed just for that purpose, we hurry to join him on the deck of the Tourmaster. "Half the days gone" he looks at the sun barely peaking over the horizon.
"Sorry, it's quite a ride from the campsite." Angel Girl replies smiling sweetly
"Never be mindin', let's get ready to set sail" Captain Mark strolls off to the engine room, and reeves the motor while we get settled in for the trip.
"This is gonna be fun" Susan says, watching the Gulls flying over head,as we navigate out of the harbor at Pleasant Bay. " Look, a pair of Eagles fishing for breakfast" she points towards the rocky shore. One Eagle swoops down, touching the water, and rises with a large fish in his talons. They head for shore and a breakfast of fresh fish.
"That's so gross,eating rare fish" Little Angel makes a funny face and rolls her eyes
"Oh, watch" Cookie says indicating a place about 200 feet off the port side of the boat.
Everybirdie watches as a whole family of pilot whales surface as one, breath, and vanish in a splash of water. The whales resurface closer to the boat and call and sing for the eggcited birdies on board. Captain Mark turns on his microphone and records the whale songs, and plays them back to the them. The whales respond by singing, and talking to one another as they swim closer tot he boat.
"Look, a baby one' Dixie tells Little Angel
"I wanta pet one" Little Angel says leaning over the side of the boat.
"OH NO!!!!!" Dixie screams as he grabs LA by the sweater collar and pulls her back into the boat. " They'll eat you"
"No they won't." Little Angel stomps her foot, sticks out her tongue and sits down on a bench with a thump. " I just wanted to pet one"
Cameras clicked as the various whales show off. It was greyt to see, pilot whales, Minke and even a trio of Humpbacks. Along the shore the Grey and Harbor Seals bark loudly, jumping into the water to swim swiftly out to greet the boat........

  Hello Cydney~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! We are playing
"Where in the World is the computer's cursor?"hahahahaha
It's a very fun game and when the cursor vanishes you have to wait for a few seconds to find it! Mom should market it to all computer users! I'm sure there are lots of people out there who would love to sit around and wait for that cursor to re-appear! Okay, so you would need a lot of patience to play this game and it might not be for everyone!
They are changing out the flags in front of our building today. There are 8 of them, 4 on each side of the driveway. The ones up there are blue and green with red tulips but since it's Autumn they are putting up gold ones and burgundy ones with gold stripes. They are very nice looking but I think I like the tulips better. I guess the tulip flags will be back in the spring.
They are also cleaning the vents on the roof over at the office building so I've been switching back and forth watching the vent cleaning and the flags. It's like a double feature at the movies!hehehehehe
Enjoy your day! Leaving an Autumn hug and a vote too!
Love you ~ Sugar

We do have another site - BIRDYVILLE. I have some pics up on it already.
I'm back! I was happy to see mom back home again. She had a wonderful time at the Hall & Oates concert. It was only 53 degrees (outdoor concert downstate) and Daryl and John never took off their jackets. The audience was so bundled up! I hear that it should be a bit warmer for a few days ... hope so!

  Day 22--Pleasant Bay, Cape Breton Island
WOW, what a thrill to shoot the rapids with my friends this past weekend. After encountering two difficult rapids we made it to the bottom of the river where it enters the St. Lawrence River at Cheticamp. After some shopping and a greyt lunch of lobster and salads, we hiked back to our campsite. Hiking through the Highlands is quite an eggperience in itself. Cape Breton Highlands National Park's hiking trails range from easy strolls to challenging climbs with panoramic views of canyons, highlands and seacoasts. The trails provide a chance to intimately explore the complex habitat of northern Cape Breton Island. Nature doesn't end at the park's boundaries. Many surrounding areas boast equally breathtaking trails. We relaxed for the remainder of the day before setting off by horseback along the trail to Pleasant Bay our next stop-over.

Pleasant Bay (Scottish Gaelic: Am Bàgh Toilichte) is a community on the western coast of Cape Breton Island, on the shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence in Inverness County, Nova Scotia. The community is located on the Cabot Trail, 141 kilometers from Port Hawkesbury. Pleasant Bay is known as the whale watching capital of Cape Breton and marks the center of the Cabot trail. This small coastal community offers an idyllic setting for hiking and for enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer. The main industry here is fishing, lobster in spring and snowcrab in the summer. The forest here is home to a variety of birds, fox, coyote, and snowshoe hare.

The ride was 3 hours long, over rocky, mountainous terrain, through heavily forested areas, that gave a breath-taking view of the ocean from our high elevation. Wes topped often to take photos and enjoy the panoramic view. Once we arrived in Pleasant Bay and made camp, we rode the short trip back into town to shop for more souvenirs at the Timmon's Art Studio. They specialize in wood carvings. They specialize in hand carved whales, dolls, fisherman and animals, painted drift wood and rocks, and folk art painting. Local artists do all the work. It is fun, colourful, and whimsical. They are easily recognizable by the large carved fisherman in front of the studio (a rebuilt fishing shack). After a day of exploring we headed back to our campsite for a quieter evening by the bonfire.

"Com' on Sky, you have enough jars of pickles" BB stood waiting by the horses as Sky paid the clerk for the pickles he'd purchased.

"Never have enough" Sky said, quickly packing his treasures into his saddlebag. He grins and wink at Little Angel. She shook her head in agreement. BB looked at Sky a smirk on her face. She simply mounted Sundancer and turned her back into the trail. Sky following close at her hooves.

Tomorrow we'll take a trip out to sea to watch the whales and maybe do a little deep-sea exploring of our own. Better go check on the diving suits and snorkels.

  Hi Cydney
This morning mom took care of the bunny room at the center. You can tell things are winding down for the fall, as there were only 6 occupied cages, and only one of them contained infants. Bunnies in the other cages are eating bunny salad, and are well on their way to release. It's kind of funny, but bunnies get released on the property at the center. The center has many release sites, but the bunnies would get too stressed riding in cars to go elsewhere, so they get released into the pet cemetery there. There are lots of woods around too, so they can always move on, through the woods.
Mom hasn't made bunny salad in a long long time! It was a good day for her, because she hasn't been in the bunny room all summer long. Of course, she was glad not to be, as the room contained up to 20 cages with multiple bunnies in each one during peak baby season. Today was a piece of cake.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some love. It's very cool here, either high 50s or low 60s all day long. Mom might have to change into jeans soon, as her legs are getting a bit cold, heehee. Hugs, Falco, still on meds

  Day 21--Cheticamp River Kayaking part 2
Hello Everybirdie, Angel Girl with today's BOTM post. What fun it is to kayak down the rapids, and paddle through the quiet calm between high mountain peaks towering above the river far beneath. As the remainder of our group finish their trip through the first rapids, we paddle along, on calm still waters. Along the shoreline we see a Moose grazing in the cool of the tall tree-lined river. A lone coyote dashes out of sight as we draw near to his hiding spot. The Canadian Geese honk their annoyance of our intrusion upon their domain. It isn't long before making a large curve in the River we enter our second, longer rapids.
"Hey, this is greyt. Like a long roller coaster" Peppino squeals delightfully as he, Rio and Tango paddle fast entering the swift current, bobbing like an apple in a barrel of water
"Snowy, paddle on the right" Finnegan calls out, paddling frantically as their kayak is pulled into the rapids
" okay everybird watch out for boulders, and fallen tree branches, be careful, see ya at the bottom" Angel shouts as her kayak rushes head-long into the fast moving waters ahead.
"Chyna, you need to lean to the lean back so we stay upright." Cori warns her.

"Spot, you look sea-sick" BonBon giggles making fun for her frother, " you ain't gonna puke are you?"
"BonBon, behave" Poppa Sky tells her as he and BB flash by, barely avoiding a giant red boulder poking out of the river.
Pearl and Silver let their kayak go and keep their paddles on the ready to push away from the rocks, they glide smoothly to the bottom of the rapids where they wait for the others. Sugar and Jenny0Lynn with Lalo and Sweetie in a tandem kayak begin to paddle to the further left edge before pointing into the rushing rapids. Their kayak bobs roughly, then smooths out sailing through the water swiftly. the girls watching intently for snags under the water, and pushing off from the great boulders that point their angry heads towards the sky. Hulk bravely paddles into the rapids, Snowy and Strawberry paddling on the right to keep them steady as the current under he surface draws them along to the bottom.
Chipper, Cheyenne, Cookie and TiPaul enter the rapids last, their kayak begins to wobble and then straightens out. They paddle madly as a black form seems to leap out of the water just ahead. The water is too strong and their kayak bumps the rock, causing it to spin in a circle. Facing backwards their kayak is out of control as they drop down the rapids too fast. Chipper yells as water washes over them. Cookie and Cheyenne, paddle in reverse, slowing their descent. Together they work to turn their kayak, as more rocks rush towards them. The others watch in shock as their friends dip out of sight under the water. Holding their breath they wait. "There they are!" everyone cheers."
Breathing hard the foursome stops in the midst of the others.

  Hi Cydney
The double wedding yesterday was sure beautiful. We all wish the 2 happy couples long life and happiness. We were sorry to have to be silent during the reception, but mom had plans for the evening.
It was her first Night at the Races, a fundraiser for the pool where she goes in the summer. She always bought a horse and jockey for the event, but never went. She never won, either, although her sister has won at least $40 every year! Last night, she and her sister and brother in law went to the dinner and stayed for the races. Guess what? Mom's horse won in its race! Mom won $40, and since she bet on it, she won another $4. (Of course, she spent more than that during the course of the evening.) It sure was fun winning something, though!
Today it's kind of cloudy and it's supposed to be cooler, although when mom walked the dogs, it was sure humid and close. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of Sunday love, and having a pleasant weather day as well. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cydney
I bet we will outlast i5! Wouldn't it be nice if someone (who cares) buys them out? I can only wish.
The site is up now and is called - Birdyville. The problem is the couple who are working on it had to stop. Their family member is very ill and they must go to help them. Squeaky, Picabo and Scion can help you with the info.
Today is a dark, dreary, cold and very wet day ... go away rain!
This will be my last blog until Monday. Mom is going downstate to see a concert. Dad won't blog for me.
Have a greyt weekend.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Cydney
Thanks for the well wishes. My side doesn't feel as hard to mom, so maybe that's a good sign. I am still giving her a hard time with the meds, though.
I feel good enough to be dancing at the wedding today. It's at 4 eastern, hope to see you there.
Mom had a training type tour this morning to help the people who work in the halls. She took them through cenozoic and mesozoic halls and gave them some background on the exhibits. It was fun, different from any tour she's ever done. Then she had a tour in mammal hall for the general public. It was one of those mini tours, and she finished in 35 minutes, YAY. That's supposed to be the time frame for those.
I hope you are getting lots of good weather today, we sure are! May your day be filled with sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Cydney~
I hope you are having a great day! It's starting out cool and misty here! Just the way it should be!
Only 2 more days until the fair is over down in town! It's really fun but there is way too much traffic down there during the fair time. My skin sister's boss went yesterday and brought back a whole bag of fair scones for us! YUMMY! Mom has the mix so we can make more at another time. They have raspberry jam in them!
Can you believe that it is the last day of summer?? I had a nice summer but I just love Autumn. Pretty colors and really yummy squash! Halloween too! Guess I had better start thinking about a costume!
I hope your day is just perfect!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Day 20- Cheticamp River Kayaking
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's wet BOTM post. We finally arrived at the inland beginning of the Cheticamp River, where we found our Kayaks ready and waiting for our down river tour. The sun was just peaking over the mountains when we pushed off and began to slowly paddle out into the calm river. We had not gone very far when the current of the river began to move rapid and strong towards our first white-water adventure.
" Angel GIRL!!!" Raffikki called loudly, " you sure this is safe?"
"Well, I think so," she saw the look on several faces change, " YES, of course it is, just hang on tight to the sides of the kayak and paddle when you can. Watch for rocks, and paddle backwards to slow yourself down to navigate around them. SEE YOU ALL AT THE BOTTOM"
"WEEEEEE," Little Angel and Dixie's kayak begins it rapid ride down the rough, fast moving waters, spray flying up into their faces, " this is fun Dixie" Dixie wasn't so sure, but paddles and leaned slightly to go around the first rock in their pathway.
"Oh, my feathers!" Chyna complained as water soaked her from head to tail, " It's freezing cold too!"
"Paddle harder Cori" Boo Boo ordered as she navigated a turn in the river expertly
""BRRRRRR. It's icy. I'm soaked too" Falco called to Chyna as she and Willie splash around a huge boulder in the river.
"Havin' fun BB?" Sky asked laughing as water covered over their kayak, as they bobbed and spun down the decline" reaching quickly back to check on his pickles. " Ok, their safe!"
"YUCK!!!!!! " BonBon glares at Spot who grins back, " you did that on purpose." BonBon shakes her feathers dry of water and "OHHHHHHHHHH, algae" Spot giggles and splashes her again with the paddle. She sticks out her tongue. " where'd you learn that from"
"I'm tellin' Poppa Sky on you Spot" and Little Angel"
YEEHAWW" SamIAM yells as he and Miranda move swiftly through the choppy waters, mist and waves soaking them to the skin. " This is so much fun"
" Hold on tight" Jesse yells to Falco as they reach a very rough, rocky spot at the bottom of a short falls. Willie and Jesse paddle hard to keep up-right and finally they exit the white water into the calm river below. :Wasn't that greyt falco?" Jesse asks, but only gets a fluff of wet feathers in response. The boys laugh.
" Here we go Gus" Hulk says as they enter the rapids, water falling high around them
"Snowy, Strawberry are you two ok?" Angel calls back seeing them caught up on a small dead-fall( tree limb) in the water.
"Yep, we're free" the kayak moves off swiftly, into the deeper water.
Chipper, Cheyenne, Cookie and TiPaul ride the rushing current safely through the first turn, into the rough, drop over the falls, when suddenly their kayak turns sideways. They paddle hard trying to correct themselves, but it's too late, they tip to the left and then turn upside down. Just as swift they roll themselves upright to the applause of the others watching from below.

  My sweet Cydney!
Seems like so many people are having computer problems or BC problems! BC has been giving us a hard time too!
Well, tomorrow's game is at night........we really don't know who we think will win. Hope the Steelers play better than they have!
That's too bad you missed entering the Rodeo Queen contest.
Great idea to have everybirdie fly over here after the wedding. It's still warm enough to swim !
Ok sweetie...lets get ready for the wedding. It's going to be a fun day!

  Hi Cydney
Thanks, I can't believe it! 20K!!!!
Mom has a list of all the problems on the BC. She is going to send a long email to them soon. It's been a real pain in the tail feathers all summer.
What a greyt day! I hit the 20K at 1AM, thanks to my sweetie Scoober. Then, it was Talk Like A Pirate Day! I did my best. Today was a high of 65, partly sunny and rain tonight. The T-storms are back and will hit us from 2AM thru 8PM on Saturday.
I want to thank all of you who have voted for me. I wouldn't have this honor without you.
Hugs

  Day 19--Sights and Scenes to behold
"HELLOOOO!!!!!!!" Angel Girl yells, listening to her voice echo off the rock faces of the mountains. " This is so cool. We have so much to do in this one park, it's incredible."
"Oh look" Kaji points as he spies a large mother black bear with three tumbly teenage cubs following behind, wrestling and rolling in the long meadow grass.
There are many activities to do when visiting the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Activities include camping, hiking, sightseeing, swimming, fishing, cycling, golfing, kayaking and surfing. There are endless swimming options available for all ages in the park. There are five main salt water ocean beaches in the park and two freshwater lakes. The ocean beaches include Ingonish Beach, North Bay Beach, Broad Cove Beach, Black Brook Beach and La Block Beach. The two freshwater beaches include Freshwater Lake and Warren Lake. Freshwater Lake and Ingonish Beach are both supervised with a lifeguard during the summer months. There are very strong currents at Black Brook and Ingonish Beach which must be considered when bringing small birdies to these two beaches.
"Hey let's go white water kayaking down the Cheticamp River." Pookie says eager for adventure. " Then we could try surfing off the beach."
"Sounds like fun." Angel Girl climbs up on a tree stump to be heard. " OK, who wants to try some kayaking in white waters?" she looks as every wing goes up. " cool bunch of adventures."
"They Park ranger says they have kayaks arrival at the top of the river. We can ride the horses there, or hike cross country." Jenny-Lynn tells the group.
"We better hike, leave the horses here until we return and head down tot he ocean later for some surfing. Pookie offered to help teach us a few basics." Willie adds, grabbing his backpack
. The sun shines like sparkles through the heavy pine forest canopy. As the group walk they reach the opening over looking the ocean and park below. Steep cliffs and deep river canyons carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean.
"BB, this is so beautiful, I feel like we have escaped into the past. Look how alive it all looks here." Sky hugs BB close as they look out over the park.
"Dixie, look, deer" Little Angel watches as the group graze in the shadows of the mountain.
Rio and Cydney, stand in awe at the size of the ocean stretched before them. " It goes on forever"
Jesse, joins Falco as they take photos to member their trip to Cape Beeton. " Popeye, Cori, Boo Boo and Pearl stop to admire an Eagle soaring high in the sky above them.
"We better get going so we have time to kayak before the sun gets too high in the sky. It will be so much fun bumping and splashing down the river." Angel Girl talks to Lalo and Sugar as they begin to hike down the soft, leaf covered pathway.
Sky grins, patting his backpack. " some pickles just in case I get hungry."
Angel Girl giggles and shakes her head at her frother, " always hungry"

  Hello Cydney~
I hope you had a wonderful day! I'm doing just fine. It's dark and cloudy on one side of the hose and very sunny on the other side! It looks so cool!
We are still struggling with the computer so it limits our time during mom's workweek! I hope you don't think I haven't been thinking about you, because I have! It can take us an hour just to get 3 notes out and when mom has to work that night, we just run out of time! I don't think it will be too long before dad can get it fixed up.
I am watching the Mikado with the skin sister! It's got lots of music and for some reason it is making me giggle! I don't usually like operas but this one seems to be funny!
I do hope you enjoy your evening!!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Day 18--Cape Breton Highlands National Park
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. It was so eggciting to see the whales so up close and personal. The majestic giants were happy to show-off their talents, leaping, and blowing for us as we paddled among them heading for our new campsite at Cape Breton National Park. I wish to take a moment to thank everyone for their their daily votes and support in my quest for the throne. Sharing this adventure with all my friends is making it a special memory for me.
After paddling along the coast we finally arrived at Cheticamp, on the edge of Park. Here we were reunited with our horses, and were able to pick up a few needed supplies that my frothers Jesse and Amanda, being boys, forgot to include in our packs. The park is located in the northern end of the island and covers one-third of the Cabot Trail. It passes through the park featuring spectacular ocean and mountain views. The park is well known for its "steep cliffs and deep river canyons that carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean" The park was the first National Park in the Atlantic provinces of Canada and covers an area of 948 km². It is one of 42 in Canada's system of national parks. It is known worldwide as the place where singer Taylor Mitchell died after being fatally attacked by coyotes, the only adult human fatality from coyotes in history.
At the western entrance of the park is the Acadian village of Chéticamp on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence . On the eastern side of the park are the beaches at Ingonish on the Atlantic Ocean. In between are mountains, valleys, forests, waterfalls, rocky coastlines and a tundra-like plateau known as the Cape Breton Highlands. Park wildlife includes moose, black bears, coyotes, and Bald Eagles. The park provides habitat for the uncommon Bicknell's Thrush and Gaspe' Shrew. The first nest records of Boreal Owls for Nova Scotia were found in the south west corner of this park.
" Lalo, come on, you have enough souvenirs" Jenny-Lynn says, wings on her hips as she keeps an eye on her fister in the gift shop in Cheticamp.
"What's this Acadian thing?" Gus asks Hulk, "reading a sign mounted in town square
"Acadians are of mixed decent, French and other races. They came here from Louisiana"
"So we can get some Cajun cookin here? Let's go get something to eat!" Gus replies happily
"Wait for us" Susan and Snowy yell as they weave through the crowd of horses and riders." can't pass on a greyt meal"
Angel Girl continues to check their supplies list preparing to head to their next camp site.."Oh we need more eggs and oatmeal." She gives the list to Sky who heads off to gather all they need from the store near by.
"This place is beautiful" SamIam comments, looking out over the ocean, :has a historic appeal to it."
" I have everything we need. We better ride out before it gets too dark: Sky tells Angel Girl
"Ok, let's mount up birdies, time to head into the mountains."

  Hi again sweet Cydney from your Jenny Lynn
We are having great Fall like weather, and we will have it for at least the next 6 days, if the weather guessers are correct for a change! We were reminded by some friends to thank God for Queen Chuey and our dear Ms Falco, for having a good health report, two are well with one to go! As I see it, the problem with having so many BC friends is that we are subjected to their pain and suffering when something is wrong with their flock or family, especially if you have a loving caring heart like our daddy and all of us! It is the love of our dear friends that keep us in the race, and as daddy says, we wouldn't have missed it for the world! Happy throw back Thursday to you all and give my love to all in your precious home, see ya tomorrow for sure...

Forever love from Jenny & my family

PS~Way to go for your 20K votes Ms Chyna, we all love you very much, does it show...
