So living in the woods I knew there would be animals around and insects every where. But I am a little surprised at how frequently I see some animals, especially since there are people around and you would think they would be skittish.

So far I have seen deer (everyday), spiders (multiple times a day), squirrels (everywhere), a rabbit, and the tail end of a skunk crossing the road (I was in my car and did not get sprayed).

I know I shouldn’t be surprised, but the squirrels everywhere thrown me off the most. I don’t know why. I guess I’m just used to great clusters of them at a playground and sparingly everywhere else. I  also surprised that the deer don’t seem to have a #$%& if you are there or not. I always thought they were skittish. Even Pismo barking at them doesn’t bother them.

And, well, we all know how spiders are.  =O
