Today looked promising. Clear and sunny. Carol was up early and left for Sarnia to pick up her daughter and head to Detroit/Windsor. But before Carol could get to Sarnia, a big deer jumped out onto the highway right in front of her. Carol pulled over right away. She was not hurt. But the car had multiple bumps and abrasions. I cancelled my plans to head out and go hiking/birding today when she called to tell me. Instead I drove out and picked up her. The police were there and shortly after I arrived the tow truck came. I brought Carol home and it wasn’t long before she crawled into bed for a nap.
While she was sleeping I drove out to Clark Wright Conservation Area and went for a walk around the trail. Such a beautiful day, but windy. There were a number of TV’s soaring about overhead. AMERICAN ROBINS and RED-WINGED BLACKBIRDS were seen flying about. It was a short, but nice, walk.
If the weather holds, I will take more time for a longer walk tomorrow.
