Marije and I spent a long weekend on the North Island, we planned this getaway ages ago and thankfully the weather was pretty much perfect!
As per usual, our focus was on the wildlife: we saw black bears, grizzly bears, raccoons, minks, dolphins, porpoises, humpbacks, and even a sea otter! 🙂
Here are some pictures, first from Saturday’s bear watching tour:
At one point, the little grizzly cubs climbed up into the bushes to get at the salmon berries:

Sunday’s whale watching tour:
Dall’s porpoise, directly beneath the bow where we were standing:
On the drive home, we stopped by Buttle Lake in Strathcona Provincial Park:
No need to say it, but this was a beautiful weekend!
