Hi everyone! This is Travellin' Rick. I recently went on a camping trip of a lifetime. I went camping in British Columbia, Canada. BC vacations are most certainly a thrill. BC is the best place for summer adventures in all of Canada.
I arrived at the campsite on Friday evening, got the tent setup and then cooked some hot dogs on the open fire. There is nothing like the taste of hot dogs cooked on an open fire. As a matter of fact, there is nothing like the taste of any kind of food cooked over an open fire. I ate three hot dogs! Normally I could only eat one, maybe two at the most.
Saturday morning, I got up early and went fishing. The lake that I was at was in the midst of the most beautiful mountains that I have ever seen. There were definitely a lot of fish in the lake because I must have seen about a hundred of them jumping out of the water, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to catch any. I was really disappointed about this because I wanted to have a fish fry.
On the lake, besides seeing fish jump, I did see quite a few loons. Seeing loons on a lake also confirms to me that there are a lot of fish in the lake because loons would not waste their time in a lake if they weren't going to be able to get food for themselves.
I also saw a golden eagle sitting on a huge rock on the west side of the lake. He was a beautiful bird, with big golden wings that must have spread at least five feet apart. At one point, I saw the eagle ruffle his wings. What an awesome sight!
A little while later, at the north end of the lake, I saw a bald eagle swooping over the lake. He didn't have a chance to get any fish because he was too busy fighting off the crows that were chasing him. The crows in BC are huge and they kind of scare me a little. I'd rather see eagles than crows any day of the week.
