During the coffee cruise, we came upon a family of loons. The mother and father were there, feeding the chicks. They are so small and fuzzy and cute. The mother would stay on top of the water watching the babies while the father dove under and hunted fish for the babies.

Dad didn't like us being too close, so he tried to scare us away by flapping his wings.

I took about a gazillion pictures, but not every one came out because the boat was bouncing up and down and my camera's zoom was maxed out which is hard to keep steady anyway. So these are the best of them. It was really fun seeing these beautiful birds up close.
