Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

November Sunday......

The last of the sun? A wonderful sunny Sunday, we just had to go out. Gerry didn't want to go so Laura, Reina and I went out for a drive. What to do, it was probably 60 degrees by the afternoon but we took coats expecting it to be windy. We chose to go up on Empire Bluffs. Its a nice hike with lovely views, worth the effort and walking through woodlands. It was the 15th, first day of hunting. I could not believe some old codger was sitting on a log with his rifle. I said you have to be kidding. Thousands of acres of land and he is by a busy trail. Not that he would have ever seen a deer with Reina in the woods. Still, I think it's selfish and dangerous. Yes he was within his rights but............

The woods were lovely, the views spectacular as always.

I will do a piece on the woods in my Garden Blog later. Reina wanted me to take a picture.

From there we were going to the beach at Point Oneida and on the way we saw a FOX. I saw it same time as Laura, Fooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxx, she turned in and I took some pictures. I then got out to get closer. The fox, I think a girl, was beautiful. She saw me and was unconcerned. She went about playing and hunting while I watched.

I followed as she went along the edge of the long grass on her way to somewhere else. Then she spotted something and did that awesome dive. They are so much like cats when they pounce.

This guy was heading into the waves, Laura took him back up the beach. Not sure that was his intent but it looked unsafe in the Lake

We did find some stones to take home and had coats off by then, warm day for November for sure.My little buddy Tristen was at his aunt Laura's for the weekend so he missed this one.
On the way home we had another wildlife encounter. This lovely lady posed for us

Wished her long life and told her to stay away from the hunters.It was a great day out. We were so thrilled with the fox, it was the highlight of the day. What a beautiful tail she had. (brush)
I think its one of the best things for me to have the privalege of seeing wild things, and them not being afraid of me.

I loved your pictures...but I can tell you, I would be no where near woods with some of those jumpy hunters. Did you girls have any orange color .? Your fox pics were wonderful. Blessings to all, xoxo,Susie

I do love foxes but they can cause problems for farmers and livestock, they have wonderful tails.
