But the coldness hasn't stopped the wildlife from coming out to say hello. I think they are happy that school is back in now and all the summer people are gone!
So on this trip I have seen:
Mr. Fox sunning himself on a rock, all gorgeous red fur and smug "this is my sun and my rock" expression.
Two HUGE wild turkeys! They are kind of weird looking, but regal, like skeksis wearing quail and pheasant feather cloaks.
A mama deer and two babies crossing the road and looking back at the cars like "whoa, where did they come from?"
We have also seen more moose prints on the bush paths around the house.
Add these to the two HUGE turtle sightings, a little turtle, and a redwing blackbird attacking a great blue heron, that makes for a pretty good summer!
