While on the island, we say lots of various animals – while golfing, visiting cheese makers, at the beach, at the ferry, at Coombs and outside the cottage.
This blue heron, like all blue herons I’ve seen, was quite happy to stand near the shore.
We saw a crazy amount of goats – some even on the roof!*
This goat wanted nothing to do with me unless I fed it noms.
This goat wanted nothing to do with me at all. Sad day.
This calf was crazy. It wanted to eat my fingers.
There is an over abundance of deer around the cottage but at least a few of them were fawns like this guy.
This is a banana slug – don’t touch them as they’re really sticky and will make your hand feel a bit numb. They are Mr. Bean’s favourite slug ever.
These frogs were in one of the water hazards at the golf course. Can you believe that I’ve never seen frogs that large before? Or their tadpoles? I feel like I missed out on something.
We found this big jellyfish floating at the edge of the beach – thankfully it was dead so Mr. Bean poked it with a stick.
There were also many mini clear harmless jellyfish that are oddly satisfying to pick up and try to skip.
And the best for last – we saw a whale. Two actually!
Whales are ridiculously hard to take photos of, especially if you don’t have a telephoto lense.
Seen any exciting animals lately?
