The next morning, Caroline pointed out some diving ducks and we looked them up - canvasbacks? teals? black ducks? Not entirely sure, but it was fun watching the adult coach the ducklings to dip and disappear.
Our sailing companions headed out in the afternoon but we stayed awhile, swinging on a hook, before heading out for a late afternoon sail in favourable winds. We even did some wing-on-wing.
After a breezy tour around the island, we dropped anchor again and I assembled a delicious meal from left-overs in the icebox (chicken on iceburg lettuce with oranges, almonds & St. Augere cheese).
Today, made the acquaintance of a stoat on the docks at the Toronto Island Marina. I can't remember ever seeing one before, but they've been around since the Ice Age. Apparently you can tell the difference between a stoat and weasel by the length of the tail.
At least three more days of my island holiday! Right now I am docked at QCYC and looking forward to a cool shower. Rob has had to head back to the city to work, and it won't be the same without him. Still, looking forward to some Island time! Wandering in the gardens, taking in the view, and maybe making some new discoveries....
