"serving up a slice" to the March SOLSC
sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
|Our first sighting!|
We were too far away to know exactly what it was, but raccoon was the next thought that popped into my head. We shared our urban habitat with raccoons in Houston, so why not a raccoon on the beach? As we continued to watch and stealthily moved a bit closer, we discovered that this animal was dragging a log. Soon a walker caught up to us and joined us to spy on this wildlife. I snapped pictures with my phone, but our lone walker had a fancy camera with a zoom lens.

Our friend with the zoom lens said that in twenty years of living here, he had never before seen this animal on the beach! I just wish I had given him my email, so he could have shared his photos with us. You'll just have to accept my word that the fuzzy critter in these photos was indeed a beaver!

No photos as it waddled for the beach because I had passed
my phone to Anne so she could give directions to our last
group of friends searching for the cabin.
I just love discoveries like this. Nature is amazing and you never know what critters will turn up where. But a beaver by the sea?!? who would have thought that!ReplyDelete
Oh my, a beaver! There surely is freshwater somewhere. When we were at the beach last summer, we learned that there is a big population of raccoons on the island, a real problem they said. Thanks for telling your wonderful story!ReplyDelete
