Weekend reading

7 July 2017
Thank you for visiting me this week. It's always great to see increasing visitors. I'm hoping that with more visitors here, that means more people are living like we do.  Welcome to all the new arrivals. I hope you find what you're searching for here.

Fridays come around faster than any other day.  I wonder if you've noticed that too. Monday is my favourite day now because I can see a week ahead with so many possibilities.

It probably won't surprise you to know that I've spent some time this week watching the bears at Katmai National Park in Alaska.  The bears have been back for three weeks now and every day, the water gets warmer, more fish swim up stream and more bears arrive. They gather at Brooks Falls to feast on the sockeye salmon, increase their nutritional levels and weight, and in October/November, they'll be ready to climb nearby Mount Dumpling to hibernate.  These photos are some of this week's highlights.

I hope you have a lovely weekend. 🌞
