So... we were going on one of our normal routes that takes us past a place where I always, always have to check for squirrels. You know, because you never know, right?
|Me, checking for squirrels in Squirrel Hollow
It's not really called Squirrel Hollow, but that's what Dave and I call it.
I didn't see a squirrel, but I knew there was one out there somewhere!
|"I sense one out there, too, Zim!"
Dave agreed. We knew there was one around, we just hadn't spotted it yet!
|"Show yourself, little friend!"
I gave him a minute or two and then ...
|"There you are! Hey, be careful up there, OK?"
He was WAY up high - check it out:
It's not the best picture, since he was up so high and Mom only had the iPhone, but you get the idea! He was doing a high-wire act! I waited until he had safely jumped into a tree, then we walked on.
It was really cool seeing him. We don't have any of his kin-folk right by our house, so Dave and I just love it when we do see one out on our walks. Seeing a squirrel turns a "regular" walk into a wonderful adventure! What special things do you love to see on your walks?
