Doe a deer.....

On our walk today, we saw something very, very cool. A deer! We were hiking in Bells Mill Park, which used to be a landfill many eons ago. Then it closed and the city of Chesapeake planted acres and acres of grass there, so now it is a super huge meadow, with the Elizabeth River and woods bordering it. They have mowed walking/jogging trails and now it is a park. What we like about Bells Mill is that no one seems to know about it, so I get to go off leash a lot! Anyway, we saw a single deer in the meadow and it just stood so very still, just staring at us, like a statue! Then it flashed its white tail and it was gone in a flash! I wanted to chase it, of course, but dad hollered at me and I came back, because I am just so well behaved.


  1. Wow, I did not know landfills could be reformed! Sounds like an awesome day and you are way more well behaved than by moose. He becomes deaf when you unhook his leash ;-)
