Outpost Caretakers Week 5 ~ Surprise SurpriseOctober 25, 2011 | 1440 Views
Another Thanksgiving has come and gone. You may recall from my posts last year that the best place to eat around here is “Heather’s Oceanside All Night Diner” and that’s where we went again this year. As always the view was fabulous, the service attentive, no waiting in line and reasonable prices.
Being a holiday for which we give “thanks”, we couldn’t ignore our four-legged friends especially this young buck who has made a habit (bad habit) of hanging around the kitchen door.
Did you happen to see an article this week forecasting that BC has a good chance of experiencing the coldest winter in 20 years? Yippee…how do I type that in sarcasm? On the bright side maybe we won’t have a lot of rain. The chainsawing, splitting and hauling of wood has become almost a daily activity, as we try to stockpile a good winter supply.
The hub of wildlife activity seems to concentrate in the area outside our kitchen door, wonder why? The other day I was putting clothes away in our bedroom when a noise grabbed my attention and surprise surprise look who I saw.
He stayed around for quite some time sticking his long snout into everything. I’d tap on the window to catch his attention but couldn’t compete with all the smells he was experiencing which held his curiosity.
Then… just outside the kitchen door was the below creature, I have no idea what he is after. Cute they may be but they get into everything. Last year I had an ongoing battle with one in particular. I’ve learned, the hard way, just how clever and determined they can be so this year I’m ahead of the game making sure anything that they could possibly is closed up tight…
Till next week,
Heather & Mike
