Into the Wild

Another example that shows how far we are from San Diego. Not only did it rain twice last week but we were almost attacked by a killer rabid fox.

Ok, so maybe we weren't almost killed or in any real danger at all but I was startled a bit. This little guy was hunting in the rain for some moles or something at the waters edge right next to the dock. I don't think I will get used to all the wildlife here. Last night we were driving home and a car coming towards us flashed his brights a few times. I automatically thought there would be a cop car parked around the corner and slowed down to the approved 25/mph speed. I drove around the corner and didn't see a cop at all. There were 5 white tail deer just hanging out next to the road eating grass. I feel like I am in the jungle. I think the only wild land animal I ever saw in San Diego was a rat. Seriously. There aren't even squirrels there.


ps. San Diego has loads more marine life than Annapolis does. I haven't seen any fish or anything here yet. In SD there were sea lions and seals everywhere. Sometimes we even had dead flying fish in our dinghy in the morning. I am sure there are fishes here but they have been hiding so far...
