A Close Encounter.

Hi Folks.

One of the most wonderful things about living on a boat, is the fact that we get to greet and meet allsorts of wildlife, so in a way I was not to surprised by my close encounter last night.
My phone had been ringing whilst I was eating dinner. Now I am one of those people who does not answer her phone whilst eating. If I had been out eating, my phone would have been switched off, but as we were at home enjoying a nice Lamb dinner, I let it ring. Having enjoyed our meal and washed up, I then checked to see who wanted me to urgently. It turned out to be a very dear friend, who understood when I explained to her that I was eating when she rang. To use my phone, I have to stand outside on the back counter, which is freezing at the moment, so I normally stand on the back step, with the doors closed behind me, so that I can get the warmth of the fire up my legs. Anyway enough about my legs, which are not that glamourous. I was nattering away to my friend, when out of the darkness came a four legged animal. At first I thought it was a dog, but as it drew closer I realised it was a Fox our on his evening ramble. He walked past me, as if he had not even seen me standing on the boat. My only regret was the fact that I did not get a photograph of this most majestic creature. I am so hoping that he comes back again, as Foxes are creatures of habit, so he may well pass my way again, and this time I will have my camera at hand. It made my evening seeing Mr/Mrs Fox.

  2. Good morning LadyB. It was lovely. I have seen foxes a few times. Living the life we do, we tend to see them quite often, and each time it brings a smile to my face. Foxes will live anywhere and that includes a built up area. Towns and cities provide great free food opportunities. They will raid bins and if food is left out for them, they will keep coming back. I don't know if you ever watch the Spring Watch and Autumn Watch programs, well they did one on foxes in Scotland and they had a family of foxes living near a chip shop, who would raid the shops bin every night for free fish and chips. It really was amazing to watch.
