Cold out, around freezing but sunny. Trying out my new Hippo Hands! More later!
We were not able to ski today but wanted too….being on call for work got in the way but we did manage to get out for a drive. How many places do you know where you can ski, play golf and eagle watch all in one if you wanted too? Dec. 30th 2012 we watched skiers, people playing golf and taking pictures of the eagles that are still around the Fraser River eating dead salmon.
Here is a few pics from a great day out! Again, we do believe we live in such a beautiful place here in BC. There are 4 ski mountains within an hour or so drive from our house and MANY golf courses. Weather was bright and sunny, around 3 C or 34-36 F.
Testing out the new gallery feature! I like it!
This is what I saw and heard on Nov. 26th 2012. I was in the background of this great photographer Sasse (Make Sure you watch in HD)

Feel Free to Share
At around 8am at a distance of about 500 yards these eagles could be seen from Kilby bridge across the Harrison River. Some interested people stopped and had a look as I was filming. ( I was one of the interested people )
From this weekend!

One thing that I do alone because Cheryl does not share this passion is every year I go out to Harrison Mills, BC to see the almighty Majestic Bald Eagle. I also ride out each year as well. On Saturday I counted 10 other bikes on the road, today only 1. Temps started out at 2 C or 34 F and got as high as 7 C or 44 F. Best time of year to ride, heated liner, gloves, good base gear, BUFF hoodie under my helmet and good socks. Awesome!
Since joining BC Transplant last January I really enjoy my time away from work. When we are busy managing cases for work it’s easy to put in 30 hours straight. The time I get to ride for fun and engage in my hobby like eagle watching is rare while off call. This was a great weekend!
More eagles today at Harrison Mills, BC. More dead salmon, got to ride my bike for fun…some sun, some rain but in the end a good day and great day to turn the heat on. Thanks to my heated liner and gloves!

For those who are stopping by our Blog for the first time, Cheryl is a RCMP Constable and this certainly is upsetting to the entire force!

Great camping area for those who will ride the Cassier Highway
Which means almost Bald Eagle season by the spawning stream, called Kanaka Creek by our house. Salmon are here and shortly after usually about 20-30 eagles hang out to feed on the dying salmon. A small spawning stream runs by our house.
Not too far away is a place called Chehalis-Harrison Estuary. This is where at times you can see over 7000 Bald Eagles at a time enjoying a free meal of Salmon between end of Oct through Dec. We are known for our Bald Eagles this time of year and it truly is an amazing sight to see. I hope to get out there this year with camera in hand.
