Earlier this spring I spent sometime photographing the mighty tundra swans during their migration. The result: a photo gallery, a short video and a field report. Enjoy!

It happened at the worst possible time. My 25+ year old garage door opener finally died, with the door stuck open. It was a Friday night, bitterly cold (-21 Celsius) and with a winter storm warning posted by Environment Canada. I called, expecting to have to wait until the following week. Not so. Even though it was after hours on Friday, my service call was answered on the second ring and, less than 21 hours later, a new garage door opener had been installed, calibrated and working perfectly. (The previous one was, at more than 25 years, was too old to repair -- parts no longer available.) Despite the bitter cold, the technician was friendly, knowledgable, efficient, and took the time to explain available options. As well as installing the new opener unit, he serviced and lubricated the rest of the mechanism, including tracks, brackets and rollers. He gave me a thorough rundown of the features and operation of the new mechanism, as well as a mini course on maintenance. In all, just excellent, five-star service!

This is a pleasant, comfortable and homey lodge on the North end of Grand Manan. The owner is friendly, knowledgable about the island and its attractions, and very accommodating (he even drove me to a nearby dock to catch a boat tour). Meals are excellent.

Bridgehead is an Ottawa-based chain of coffee shops that specializes in fair-trade coffees. I like their lunches which feature soups, sandwiches and baked goods. I'm vegetarian and there is usually plenty of choice. Wi-Fi

Casual atmosphere, great food. I had the Italia salad (with a refreshing raspberry dressing), a vegetarian pizza (doughy crust, melted cheese, baked to perfection) and a glass of red wine. Desserts looked great, but no room left! Highly recommended.
