Fishing... bear scares
Our night out at Ferry island when we saw the bear and had to leave after being there only 15 minutes. The kids were playing in the sand and Adam was fishing. I felt like I should go and check on the kids so I was standing there watching and taking pics. I looked up and there was the bear about 10 feet from Joshua, just sitting there! Then he got up and started walking. I would have got a pic but I was trying to get the kids further away from the bear and closer to Adam as quickly as possible. It was not huge but big enough to do major damage to a child. Adam and I packed up quick and got the kids home... especially because we had to walk through the bush to get back to the van and it was pretty dark at this point. Had it been Adam and me alone, I probably wouldn't have minded but you know... it is a little different when there are kids involved!
