I am always amazed at the sense of serenity I feel here as Linda and I take the gator and drive up the long driveway to the cabin. We pass the historic old home and barn, open a gate and slowly drive along keeping a lookout for what we may see along the way. The road has sunk several feet since it was first used. It’s a hard packed clay road with the roots of trees exposed along the way. There are many tunnels in, under and around the roots. Each hole is an animal’s dwelling. We see Groundhogs scurrying and Raccoons peeking out every few feet or so. Some Raccoons are very curious and we can come within a few feet of them before they disappear to peek out again. I try to get some shots of them.
There is a beautiful blond mule at the historic barn. She is 35 years old and just lost her partner who was the same age.
This Raccoon looks surprised to see me.
We also see several deer and some Mamas with babies.
