I think we spent as much time collecting pine cones as we did collecting shells and looking for moose.
So many interesting textures to look at:
We had a little getaway this weekend. We wanted to see the moose that come down to the highway in Algonquin Park to eat the salt used on the icy roads in the winter.
Last time we went, a few years ago, we saw 24 moose. After much driving this time, I was beginning to think we wouldn’t see any. But finally (of course as soon as the toddler fell asleep) we found one. And yes, we did drive around and find him again when she woke up.
We also spent a lot of time hunting for shells around the lakes.
A couple of sketches inspired by the weekend:
