So I’m now in Leaminton, Ontario for the 2013 Point Pelee Festival of Birds and I’m really looking forward to visiting this renowned spring migration hotspot for the next two days.

Here I go again on another adventure! This time I’m heading to The Biggest Week for two days before a big international trip across the border to the Point Pelee Festival of Birds. This will be my first trip to both places and I’m totally stoked.
