Gene and I are back from our camping trip and I wanted to share the most amazing thing that happened when we were in Monterey, California. We were driving around the back streets of the town. Gene always loves to see what is going on in the neighborhoods. We were in the middle of an area with cute older homes when we turned a corner and spied the local grammar school. Just as we started to move onto the street this deer ran across the road in front of us. He had come right up a street. Of course I didn't have my camera handy (do we ever). We looked at him with mouths hanging open and he just looked right back. Eventually we turned onto the street he had come up. We drove about 2 blocks and I made Gene go around the block to see if we could spot him again. Sure enough he was still there gazing down the street. Right as I started to open my door to find the camera a doe and 2 fawns came up the same street and jumped onto the lawn with him.....Of course still no camera...but then I remembered my phone. His family started off across the school lawn, but he stopped and looked at me like he was thinking, "will you take the shot already!" and finally I did and here he is. After he ran off we drove around trying to find a green area where they could live. Several blocks away there was a military base with a stand of trees that bordered it. It was so amazing to see them in this setting. Of course we never spotted one deer while we were camping!
I hope some amazing things have happened in your life this week......Jo Ann
