My Pet Deer


Kevin and I have gotten into the habit of walking the Nature Trails at our Nature Center – which is about three miles from our house.

Last night, we strapped on our iPods, drove to the Center and we hit the “long” trails (which are about two miles long).

I was so engrossed in the music that I didn’t notice, until I was nearly close enough to touch them, that we had two deer shadowing us. The deer in our area are so used to humans that they literally just stand there and gaze at us with those beautiful doe eyes and sort of wait for us to notice them. After we notice them, they shrug their deer shoulders and continue munching on nearby vegetation.

It’s sort of cool to walk that close to nature.
