Since the Winter Olympics in Vancouver officially starts today, I'm featuring a Canadian postcard with the adorable beaver hard at work!
This largest rodent in North America is actually one of the beloved national symbols of Canada. It has appeared in Canada's very first postage stamp called the "Three Penny Beaver."
There's a popular pastry called "BeaverTails" which I discovered at Ottawa's Byward Market last June 2009. Don't worry, no beavers were killed to make this Winterlude Festival favorite! It's actually fried dough shaped like a beaver's tail and sprinkled with sugary delight. Best when eaten warm!
And here I am taking a bite out of a BeaverTail!
