Ah, after a long day, it is nice to take a little stroll through the neighborhood with the dogs and friends. Imagine our surprise when we saw a family (perhaps a family reunion!) of 5-7 raccoons run up a tree then across a busy street. They perched and watched us for a time as we marveled at their tree climbing skills. This picture doesn’t do the sight justice. Their little eyes were peering down at us watching us as intently as we were watching them. I think both humans, dogs, and raccoons felt like there was safety in numbers last night!
A nice reminder that nature is all around us, we just have to take a moment to appreciate it.
