Leif Erikson Day remembers the first Europeans to sail to North America. Yes, the Vikings were 500 years before Christopher Columbus. They established the settlement of Vinland in Newfoundland.

October 9th is also World Migratory Bird Day. The snowbirds are heading South. Even though the border remains closed to non-essential travel to the USA for Canadians many are waiting for October 21st and hoping the border will be re-opened. Many are making plans to fly to their winter homes. The Canadian Snow Bird Association and many insurance companies are awaiting the decision.

Today is also World Post Day. A day to celebrate the International Post Offices of the world and their impact.

I’m not a photographer of wars or social injustices. I prefer to walk along a beach and be amazed by the sights around me. This little bird was totally oblivious to me walking so close with my camera. The sound of my footsteps was hidden by Lake Erie wind and waves on the other side of Canada’s southernmost point. If not for the 2 1/2 hour drive I would go to Point Pelee National Park more often. Next time I’ll have to take my kayak to explore the marshes.
