Middle of the Week - Beaver video and photo

Had a nice wander around by myself for my 'walk' this morning. I got to see four - maybe five - beavers!! What a lovely treat! There were two at once, right by the lodge, and quite close to observe and take photos. I did take a little video in between taking photos. It's not the greatest quality, but I love hearing them chomp on the branches!

Here's one of the photos that I took with my camera

They really are a joy to watch and I am so lucky to have them close. There has been discussion on our local Facebook page about how they are 'destroying' all the trees. Yes, they take down trees but there have been some measures taken to protect some of the more 'important' trees.

I had to stop and pick up a couple of things at the shops. I was going to pick up one of the Breakfast Smoothie drinks that I usually treat myself to, but they had doubled in price!!! I picked it up and put it right back down when I saw the price. I cringed at the $1.98 price, but I couldn't bring myself to spend $3.98 on it! I did get petrol/gas and even that made me cringe, but I was driving on fumes lol. 

I came home, listed 10 more postcards on Ebay and managed to sort out six books to donate. I could have done more, but I was running out of time and wanted to at least get some sorted so I could report back lol. I should say I'll do five more tomorrow and maybe I'll do it! I do have 10 more postcards to list tomorrow. I also need to package up some items to ship. 

Day 313

Out by the Old Lodge. Just peaceful. Blue Skies. Alone. Nice. 

Hope everyone had a good day!


  1. I think mankind can be so blinkered/hypocritical. Yes, they do use trees in their normal existence but when you think of how mankind is destroying rainforests by the acre every single day, it makes the beavers' actions something of a red herring.

    As always, beautiful photos, thank you.

  2. I enjoyed watching the video! Thank you for sharing it! Just about everything costs more these days, doesn't it?

  3. Sending hugs. You are certainly keeping busy. And the price of things these days is scary!

    Thank you so much for sharing the cute pics and video of the beaver. They are so sweet and it really made me smile. Thank you!

  4. Thanks for the video, you can hear the crunching. Crazy little thing.
