Luna’s Offbeat Adventures-Episode VII

Hi everyone! My name is Luna and I’m a very active and curious Labradoodle. I love to follow my dad on his history exploration adventures, so he decided to put a camera on me to record what I see while we’re hiking. It’s in its armoured housing, so the audio is muffled, the harness doesn’t always stay in the right spot and the GoPro can’t always compensate for my movements, so there are no awards for sound and cinematography here (seriously, it’s very shaky at times). It’s just raw, minimally edited video.

This episode took us to one of my dad’s favourite spots, Orient Bay, Ontario. We actually filmed Episode I (https://youtu.be/0XhbXTwkUd8) just to the north of this area back in May. This adventure was a little different than our usual explorations since we were not biking, but rather walking and there to do some drone flying; the views of Orient Bay and the cliffs of the Pijitawabik Palisades are amazing! It was a warm day, so I even went for a little swim.

Enjoy!

Luna’s Offbeat Adventures-Episode II

Hi everyone! My name is Luna and I’m a very active and curious Labradoodle. I love to follow my dad on his history exploration adventures, so he decided to put a camera on me to record what I see while we’re hiking. It’s in its armoured housing, so the audio is muffled, the harness doesn’t always stay in the right spot and the GoPro can’t always compensate for my movements, so there are no awards for sound and cinematography here (seriously, it’s very shaky at times). It’s just raw, minimally edited video.

This episode took us to Orient Bay, ON, where we explored the railway grade south of Orient Bay Station to Cove Inlet. The views of the bay and the Pijitawabik Palisades are incredible. It’s shorter than our first episode as the harness is a bit uncomfortable, so my dad didn’t want to keep it on me for too long.
