We returned home tonight after nine long days of vacation. We had a blast, but nine days is a long, long, long time to be away from reality. Once I get my head together and we get unpacked I'll be back with some tales of the trip and some updates on what happens when you leave 3 chickens, 2 cats and a garden for nine days. Things are definitely not as you left them - that's for sure.
But since it's Wildlife Weekend here I thought I'd post a pic of a little furry critter that the boys and I saw at Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island.
We were driving through the refuge hunting for alligators when we heard a rustling in a tree. We looked up and saw this little guy scampering up the branches. He had a couple of friends on the ground who took off and left him stranded when we walked up. He was obviously a young raccoon and seemed quite pleased to pose for this photo.
I'll post some more details and photos about our trip to Sanibel Island later, but I couldn't let the weekend slide by without a cute pic for Wildlife Weekend. It was a great trip, but it's so good to be home.
