day at the beach

We went to the Ocean yesterday and it rained all day. It did not bring us down though because we played in the arcade all day and did some shopping.

On the way to the ocean we saw a huge turtle that should be in the water but it was walking on the street....it looked like a lizard at first glance. We managed to not hit it so that is good news!

On the way home we drove past lots of farms and hunting areas but we saw no animals. It was late and we were almost home as we were coming off the ramp for a busy highway when we saw a baby deer in the road....I am not sure where they live around there because everything is so built up. Greg managed to swerve out of the deers way because we would have been in a major car accident. The deer was eating hay that sell off of someone's truck. The baby deer did not move when he saw us coming he just looked up and then keep eating. I am sure someone had to get hurt last night because of it. He was right in the middle of an off ramp and most people speed when they come around it so they can stay up to speed with the people on the highway.

We still can not believe we saw a deer at that spot and it was at a turning part of the road so we are very lucky that we caught the sight of the deer in time. It was a very dark and rainy night....I guess someone was watching out for us. The only good thing is that it was a rental SUV that we had and it did not flip over.

Well that was our excitement for the day! Today is much more relaxing.

I almost hit a baby deer once too...I screeched to a stop to avoid it, and its little weak legs gave out under it and it fell! I was horrified and wanted to get out and help it up...but it finally got up and ran back into the woods. Scary.

A friend of mine hit a deer once. Wrecked his car. Luckily he wasn't hurt. Unfortantely the same couldn't be said for the deer.

I grew up in Vermont, we used to see deer all the time. One time one almost literally jumped over the hood of my car...scared me half to death!

Wait a minute, what about the turtle? All this talk about the deer; deer can run, a turtle tries but gets laughed at mostly.
Did you help it to water? On the other hand, it could've been someone's pet out for a walk so....never mind.
I'm sorry there was no sun, the arcade is cool, but lounging in the sand doesn't cost anything.
Did the eight year old go? In a couple of years, she'll beat the pants off either of you guys. Glad you turned rain into fun.
