It was fall scenery that I was looking for, not pirates. Or butterflies. I said I needed to see fall and/or a moose before I go, so when I saw a large animal off in the distance I got excited. But my friend said no, not a moose, darn it.
I also didn’t expect to see a neighbor walking his oxen down the road. I hope I get a little more warning if I see him again.
And we were so sure that the hummingbirds were gone already that we nearly took the hummingbird feeder down. I’m glad we didn’t.
