Happy New Year!

Today we decided to go for a walk over in Goldstream Park on Vancouver Island, it was a bit misty in the morning when we arrived on the island…

We got to the park and the sun was shining off and on, but it was a bit chilly outside – but we were prepared for it.

Goldstream Park is a beautiful place where the salmon come to spawn. Earlier in the season you can visit to see the salmon run. Later in the year as the salmon die, the eagles come to feed. Today, we saw two eagles in the tree – but other years there were plenty.

It is a beautiful walk anyway and we enjoyed it, the river, the trees, and more…

As we were driving back to the ferry down a backroad we came across some more eagles – even closer than the ones in the park. I haven’t seen them so up close before – it was amazing!
