Still sick, I was feeling a bit stir crazy again after all day Monday in my jim-jams, so I went over to the Effie Yeaw Nature Preserve and took a shot walk in the misting rain. I kept my pace slow and didn’t walk for too long. There were deer all over the place today, and some of them in fairly large groups, so I got a lot of photos of them. When I came across a mama doe and one of her yearlings, I was surprised when the yearling started to walked quickly right at me. I had my bright pink umbrella up and maybe it was curious about it, but it was kind of a shock to see it coming toward me. Mama stepped out a bit, figured I wasn’t a threat to her baby and ambled off. The yearling kept looking at me, but when it saw its mother move off, it eventually took off after her. On the trail, I also saw some wild turkeys, a Great Blue Heron, a Great Egret and some smaller birds, like Robins and pretty little Lark Sparrows.
As I said, I didn’t walk for very long and headed home afterwards. I took a hot shower and then relaxed with the dogs for the rest of the day.
