The Canadian Maple Shark...
Sorry about that last post. I didn't mean to give you all grabbers (a "grabber" is a heart attack).
We are back from a sailboat trip up in the North Channel, a chain of uninhabited islands along the northern shore of Lake Huron. You can watch some video from last year's trip HERE, but I'm sure most of you have watched it hundreds of times already. It is a beautiful area.
Unlike last year, we saw quite a bit of wildlife this time. We saw tons of loons, a beaver (a nice one), a bald eagle, and a black bear. We had been hoping to see a bear. The one we saw was galloping across the highway in front of us on our drive home. We were thrilled.
Megan, who spent her childhood going to the ocean, is always commenting on how nice it is that she doesn't have to worry about sharks while swimming in fresh water. I reminded her of the Canadian Maple Sharks. They are twice the size of a Great White with three times the appetite. These sharks can be identified by the small Canadian flag they affix to their flanks so that Europeans don't confuse them with the more obnoxious American sharks from America.
