Little Lake at Coombs Country Campground

This photo and the one following were taken today at Coombs Country Campground on Vancouver Island.   The lovely fountain above keeps the water moving on the small man-made lake which is stocked with trout and does not have a catch and release program.  If you catch a trout, this is your supper for the night.  We did see two men fishing but no  luck for them.

The photo below is of the part of the lake where people were swimming, kayaking and just having fun.  There is a small dock for people to dive into the water, but to me it doesn’t look like it is very deep.

This is a family campground where we will be until Thursday morning.  Some campsites are sunny, some are shaded. We have morning sun which will be nice.  There are clean washrooms, a pool and an arcade.   Within a short distance there are many things to do. Cathedral Grove and Cameron Lake are not far away, neither is the town of Qualicum and below that, Qualicum Beach.  Closer to the campground is the farm market, famous for its Goats on the Roof.  I have always said I would not photograph such a touristy spot but probably I will give in and take a photo to share here.

An Eagle and a Rabbit

Today  we drove to check out a campground a couple of hours north of us.  The campground has a small lake stocked with trout and I saw this adult Bald Eagle in a tree above the lake and wondered if the eagle ever went fishing.  But there are also a lot of rabbits in this campground, one of them is in photo below..

and then I wondered if the eagle preferred fish or rabbit?
