I was viciously attacked from all sides last night and this morning whilst setting up and taking down my camp. In a fit of rage I resort to the first means at my disposal: diplomacy.
A open letter to the mosquitoes of Canada.
Your behaviour is totally unwarranted and I regret to inform you that henceforth and forthwith I will be treating your species with as much contempt as you treat ours. Taking my blood without asking and then depositing your waste products into my blood stream is akin to biting the hand that feeds you. This kind of insubordination will not be tolerated. You give me no choice but to take action that will inevitably result in some fatalities, and this will continue until you evolve some manners. I am a peaceful person, but really this has gone too far.
Last night I'd been out with my camera and managed to get a night mode shot of the moon obscured by trees and cloud (see previous blog entry).
The following morning after I managed to get the camping stuff back into the car, I headed off to see the trails at Chutes provincial park.
I stood on the same platform as the previous night, wow it was like Niagara falls up close, really close. Only maybe not quite as much water, and not really as high, but still totally brilliant.
I followed the trail over two bridges and took some pics at the viewing points, then headed off for Sault Ste. Marie.
which is where I'm writing this from!
Now heading for the KOA campsite, as pancake bay (my original choice of campsite) is too far out of town for me to drive back in tomorrow.
Tomorrow: Bush plane museum and on to Neys Provincial park on my way up to the Sleeping Giant and Thunder Bay
