- 7 loons enjoying a spring swim
- 1 eagle and several sea gulls soaring overhead
- the nearby resort looked deserted
- no other boats were on the lake
- the water temperature was 56 degrees
But you need to know how happy I am to be here. It was too warm for me out west with temps in the 90's and still wearing my fur coat. I've been busy exploring the woods. I redug my hole from last year out front though it keeps filling up with rain. When it isn't raining I'm on yard guard duty. I've managed to scare off deer, chipmunks, squirrels and even a raccoon. But this year I'm on high alert for porcupines. They've invaded our next-door neighbor's yard and eaten the bark off several trees. Having them hang out around the yard is a bit of a worry. Remember my painful encounter with one two years ago?
I'm looking forward to swimming, more boating, treats from Mrs. S's friends and mail. My first treat letter of the year arrived yesterday. See posting details on my secret admirer wwnrockport.com/2014/10/the-world-according-to-bella-ive-got.html (last paragraph)
Life is good.
