Bears – But Not in the Woods
Hi, loyal readers. It’s been a while again, hasn’t it? I really have no valid excuses. I’d like to post more often…I just haven’t.
For the last week (maybe more), there has been a bear cruising around our neighborhood. Over night last night, he knocked over our trash can for the SECOND time, and made a mess.
It must be a good-sized bear, because it left us some ‘gifts’, and these ‘gifts’ are BIG. The ‘gift’ in the pictures is about 12 inches long, and about 8 inches wide.
CAUTION: Those are, indeed, photos of bear poo below.
I’d love to see the bear, he just happens to be out and about while I am asleep. I’d love to get some photos of HIM, not just his droppings.
In other news – Rich and I finally went for our pseudo-honeymoon. We drove to Southern California and stayed there for a few days. We then drove north along the coast to Portland, OR, stopping here and there. We met up with family, and spent several days in Rockaway Beach, OR. we drove back to SoCal, and spent more time there, and then came home. It was a little over two weeks of travel, family, and friends. It was a great trip.
I did take tons and tons of photos, which I haven’t sorted through yet. Here are a couple, both taken by Rich. The first is me, walking along the beach at San Simeon, CA, and the second is the two of us at the Smith River, right on the California/Oregon border.
Thanks for stopping by, reading, and commenting!
