(The view from our house.)
It has been more than a year since I last posted anything here. I have been busy buying a house (again!), remodeling it (again!!!), selling the house on Bainbridge Island and moving into a new new house in Seabeck, WA, a small town on the Hood Canal. Bainbridge Island had a lot of nice things, but so much development was going on, and traffic was getting worse and worse. We craved for some place where we could enjoy our retirement in peace and quiet.
Our new house is very quiet. It is almost too quiet, but I am slowly getting used to it. The houses are farther apart, and the drive ways are nice and long, so we don’t see our neighbors like we used to on Bainbridge island, but we do get quite a few visitors in our yard.
A family of Black-tailed deer. (Early June, 2018) They were coming to our yard almost daily, but I don’t see them as much now. I heard that they are at properties with apple trees now.
One of the fawns at the end of June, 2018.
A buck with the antlers coming out. (September, 2018)
Various rabbits came to our yard, but I was able to take picture of just one of them.
I will try to take more pictures so that I can ID them. (https://wdfw.wa.gov/living/rabbits.html) Based on the distribution map, this one is likely to be an Eastern Cottontail rabbit, but I’m not sure.
Alligator Lizard ( Based on the color, I think this one is Northern alligator lizard.) –Taken sometime in March 2018
