Since I'm not doing much in the way of interesting travel, photography, writing, experiencing things but feel obligated to keep this blog going a bit longer, I'll entertain you all with some old photos. Actually, one of these has been posted before but it's my "lucky photo" so I thought today I'd post the trio.
These baby, almost teenager raccoons were playing in a tree right in front of our deck early, early one morning. We went outside to sip our coffee and spied them high in the tree playing. As we watched them they began watching us and were curious. I got the camera and began taking photos, which made them leery.
They slowly climbed down the opposite side of the tree from us, occasionally peeking out one side or the other, before dismounting the tree and scrambling down the riverbank. They were so cute! It was one of those spontaneous, magical moments that I've never forgotten. Raccoons aren't my favorite creatures, but these guys were just young ones, curious ones, cute ones...for that moment.
