I've posted several times about the abundance of wildlife we see while living aboard Drift Away. We see many species of waterfowl, which should not be surprising, but yesterday Megan (Pam's daughter) had the day off and watched a deer leap off the stone wall behind our boat and into the water, in broad daylight. Luckily, she grabbed the camera.
I must note that we live in a marina in Stamford, a city of 125,000 and surrounded by the smaller cities of Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, and other towns. That we see deer, raccoons, and other critters still amazes me. Several towns even report black bear problems!
Last night was typical. This is what we usually see while enjoying sitting on the aft deck.
grows into this.
What a handsome bird, eh?
