The Easter Bunny has come and gone today and with the sun shining so nicely, we decided to go for a drive to capture some spring shots of Kamloops. It didn’t take long and that cloud moved in and stole the sunshine! Not to be discouraged by this, as none of the subjects were, I took the photos anyway.

|Boat launch at the slough|
This is the Thompson River’s mouth of the slough which houses the boat launch, a very busy place in the summer but at this point in time, getting ready for goslings and ducks to hatch as they did at this time last year. They may be waiting for this wet chillier weather to leave before the babies arrive, Mother Nature’s good planning!

I noticed several carrots scraps that someone had fed them, and tossed them toward him trying not to scare him away. Each one would come close but bounce away, and he was watching it all with interest. I finally decided I would have to get closer in order to reach the carrot he seemed to have his eye on and once I got that close, he dove back into his home. I gave it a toss and it hit the opening and rolled down! Bet he was happy to have dinner delivered!
Happy Easter to all!
