Fox on Fire Island
Our boat went into the water this weekend and today we went to Fire Island.
At this time of year, it is empy! No people!
... and the wildlife is used to a winter with no human contact.
This fox just sat, relaxed, and looked at the camera.
After awhile, he got up and moved.
I feel so fortunate to see this in my life!
I saw the release of some turtles while in the Jupiter/Juno area of Florida.
Morgan is tagged and was then was released on March 27, 2010.
