Boat Adventure

   So, a couple week-ends ago was our first adventure out on the boat. Chris (my man) decided to take us out to this little island in the middle of the Ottawa River thinking the girls might enjoy an adventure. Once there, we discovered one lone lighthouse and a plethora of Canadian Geese. The girls began exploring and we followed suit until Chris came across a huge and highly agitated goose. So Chris, having had previous experience with angry geese, picked up a stick in preparation to defend his family. The stick had no effect and the goose started chasing him up a hill.  As I stood there laughing and mildly frightened, I thoroughly regretted not having brought my camera. Once we reached the top of the hill we realized why the goose was so angry, there were a few egg-filled nests scattered around. As we looked around the island we noticed there were at least 8-10 nests with females sitting on them glaring at us with the males hovering around ready to pounce. Needless to say, we didn’t stay for very long. We managed to escape unscathed and the girls were quite thrilled with the experience. I considered it a success as it inspired me to finish my painting and it gave me a visual of Chris that will not soon be forgotten, haha.
