OBSERVATIONS OF BIRDS AND LARGE MARINE ANIMALS

In the provinces of Canada, which are located on the shores of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, excursions and cruises to observe large marine animals and ornithological tours are very popular.

The ice melted, retreating under the pressure of water and the sun, streams paved their way in the hills, connecting in a huge lake. Over the centuries, the high hills turned into many, many small islands, overgrown with forests and scattered on the vast expanse of a clear lake …

People came. We stood with severely browed eyes and decided that these were fragments of paradise, which God had broken, having taken offense at people …. And they came up with a beautiful legend.

The Supreme Native American God, sitting in his heaven, glanced at people who are always at war and fighting among themselves. Continue reading
