Secret in the Garden

It’s a bunny. A big bunny. It left tracks. We actually saw it at the hotel, and today after a somewhat brief sleep and a day helping with baby we came home before sunset to find these tracks outside our window.

Update: the bunny just hopped across the yard, so I jumped up and slowly pulled the blinds apart with one hand while snapping this:

I don’t know if you can get the scale from the corner of the fireplace, but this critter is big enough to pull a wagon. I haven’t seen a hole, so I guess it jumped over the fence.

Anne’s hopping like a bunny herself, excited at the prospect of donning our SuperBoots (Edmontonians know how to keep feet warm!) and hiking the river trail just beyond the fence.

The B&B we’re at now is named A Secret Garden, and as you can see by clicking on the name it’s a cozy place. We hadn’t realized until yesterday that it’s nestled right next to the large Blackburn Creek Park along Blackmud Creek. So the satellite view below shows what we’re seeing beyond the garden fence above.

That access path at the top-center of the sat.view is where my bunny wants to go hippety hopping sometime soon.

Well, I was offline last night so maybe I’ll blog again later to try catching you up on the fun we’ve been having. I’m also still behind schedule on sharing pix from the rest of our flight. Just wanted to share our backyard since I just now snapped it.
