We picked our best weather day for our day trip. After the sad ending to our trip to Tettegouche and a cancelled trip in the fall last year due to my health issues, we were determined to explore Tettegouche this summer.
And explore, we did! It was a fantastic day.
Teeny, tiny wild strawberries! I ate them.
After hiking, picnicking and playing along the shoreline, we headed to the trailhead to hike a portion of the Superior Hiking Trail. While in the parking lot we heard these noisy kids mimicking birds a ways off on the trail. They were really loud! I heard them getting closer and closer, expecting them to emerge out of the trail area and then I saw them! Lots of these big black birds. Further research has revealed that these are ravens. I think. Do you know? They were making such loud sounds that didn't sound at all like a crow.
They followed us a little ways into the woods and then went their own way. It was a fascinating experience!
Little known fact about me, I can't help but be on constant lookout for things to eat while I am hiking. Paul thinks it is funny and it has become a bit of a running joke between us. Here I am with some foraged edibles: wild strawberries, wild blueberries and purple clover. The blueberries were just starting to ripen so I only found a few but if it had been a week or two later, we would have found the motherload!
Paul would usually rather get to the destination than stop to shop, so it was surprising that when I shouted "FLEA MARKET!" he almost squealed the tires to maneuver us into the parking lot.
Somehow we spent a long time browsing but left without any treasures. It is ok, though. We have plenty of stuff. It was really fun to peruse the well organized tables of goods. I would definitely stop here again and hope they still have a good collection of vintage pyrex.
