Sadly Starving

The mama bear and her cub were getting tired, so they stopped for the night. They were traveling towards Churchill, Manitoba on Hudson Bay, the polar bear capital of the world. Here they would be able to hunt for ringed seals. Sadly, not knowing about climate change, the ice normally on Hudson Bay was late coming this year.

 

The bears are hungry

Starving, anticipating

Ice to appear soon

 

When arriving in Churchill they came upon many other polar bears and new friendships began.

Finally, when the ice formed, it was game on for seal hunting.

Still many would die.

**********************************

This was written for a flash fiction challenge (even though true) over at Carrot Ranch. This weeks prompt was to write about (in 99 words, no more, no less) the absence of ice.

Street Art in Orillia, Ontario

Each year Orillia has a different theme for street art.

Sail Boats
Stephen Leacock. The theme was chairs
Letters were the theme
The theme was guitars

The theme for this year is going to be “Off The Chain” which should be interesting to see what people come up with.

Local artists get together each year and create something for that years theme.

This is for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #45.

Moose Crossing

I took this photo from our truck as we were passing by the sign in New Brunswick, Canada. These signs are posted every so many miles as they have a very large moose population. Both my husband and I were on the lookout because a moose can do a lot of damage to a car. The male moose can reach up to 1500 pounds.

Goodbye to Fred’s

Fred’s Meat Market, Orillia, Ontario
Big box stores have moved on in
Forcing closures of family establishments
Fred’s closed I learned this week
Brown papered windows is all you can now see
50 years in the community
Long gone is the land of opportunity
It’s all about the corporations and their riches
Tossing the little guys into the ditches
It used to be so nice to walk into our neighborhood stores
Once greeted by name making you feel you mattered more
Not the same in these massive places to shop
They’re so big, takes forever, feeling like you’ll drop
Big box stores have moved on in
Customer service seems a little thin
No friendly smiles when you now enter stores
They just want your money, no less, no more
Fred’s Meat Market was a butcher store

It will be missed by me, and many more


Here’s something that I recently acquired.
