Wild Wildlife

As I described my fox encounter with co-workers, they joked that I’m the “Jane Goodall” of the island!

An ordinary beach walk in the off season can turn extraordinary with a sighting of a snowy owl, a seal sunning by the jetty rocks, an eagle, or even a spout from a whale viewed on the horizon.

Two weeks ago, I spotted a fox crossing the street while I was waiting for buyers to arrive at a sale property. It was the middle of the day, and the fox looked at me for a few minutes before moving on.

Because I’m now aware of its existence, I didn’t question what I was seeing on Wednesday evening. We were walking in the bike path (ironically to avoid skunks!) and the “Stone Harbor fox” was sitting on the curb.

The fox slowly approached us, even as we backed away.  Yikes!  I guess he thought we had food?

Of course I wanted to take a picture- it’s not true unless you post it on Twitter ;)

So, stay alert on your beach and street walks!
