Naturally Superior Adventures along with the town of Wawa, Ontario have unveiled the Wawa Webcam.

On the site you will find a live camera feed of their famous giant goose. Not sure why you would need a live feed of a giant goose statue but at least the camera will provide some entertainment for the local hoodlums youths who want to get their illegal humorous activities documented.

The real gem of the site is the camera feed from the mouth of the Michipicoten River and the home of Naturally Superior Adventures. The location is famous for its giant surf when the wind is blowing against the current.

Right now camera updates the site once an hour due to satellite bandwidth issues but for those who want to see what has been happening, you can view a loop of the last 10 hours of shots.

Back in mid August, Dave (owner of NSA) approached me with the idea and I thought it would be a fantastic resource. I helped out with some technical programming issues around the site. I'm very excited to finally see the site go live.

Oh yes, these are the same outfitters who are planning "The Big One". It is an 8 week guided trip that covered the entire Canadian North Shore of Lake Superior in one summer. You can do it all at once it split it up over 8 smaller 1 week trips. Talking to Dave, there is already one person signed up for the entire trip.

You can read more about "The Big One" here.
