One of our favourite activities is to wander the almost thirty acres of wooded area here on the farm. We also wander the ten acres of fields too. On a recent wander down to and over the creek we continued up the hill into the woods. As I was taking pictures of Bill, Forest and Azule, this is what I saw:
My first thought, along with a second or two of panic was BEAR! After those two seconds of panic, I laughed because there are no bears here on the island, it was only this old girl:
That's Keeper, she had followed us down from the house. She belonged to the elderly couple who I bought the farm from and has lived here her whole life. My wonderful tenants agreed to let her stay and they are taking excellent care of her. Keeper doesn't get around very well sometimes but loves to wander the trail to the creek and gets very excited to join others on a hike. I just need to remember that she is not a bear!
