Martin’s Blog: Flashback Friday and Wildlife

It is Friday again already. I had to ask Julie twice this morning if it was really Friday because the week has just flown by and we have been really busy.

As you may know, we here at Julie and Martin do a “flashback” every Friday where we share something from the archives from the past ten years of this blog.

Today, I decided to go back to May 2008, to our blog post called “A Walk Through the Park.”

It’s amazing to think that we have been living here for four years already. Time has gone by so fast. We still regularly go to the park. We also started this summer to explore the bike trails that have been added since we moved here, which you can read about here.

As for the wildlife, there are so many more animals than just deer. And due to our pear tree in the backyard, we have our wild neighbors over for lunch quite often. So far we’ve had deer, raccoons, bunnies, frogs, turtles and, of course, squirrels and birds in our backyard. We haven’t seen any skunks so far this year, as we have before, but we are very certain they are around as well.  Yesterday, when I walked out the front door, I even saw a fox running across our front yard.

As the summer is just about to start, we are appreciating the many opportunities to walk through the park and enjoy our neighborhood.
