Is that not the cutest thing ever? The racoon is pretty cute too :) Okay, now that my sucking up to the wife is done for the moment, I will explain! The racoon in this picture is one of three that found their way to a friends house last week. The mother is nowhere to be found and sadly is assumed dead. After the first day, one of them disappeared, but the other two, now named "Sam" and "Chipper", still remain and seem to really like their new home!
I have heard baby racoons referred to as "pups", these two really fit that name well. Those are Dan's feet(one of our friends) which Sam and Chipper followed quickly around the yard like they always do. They are 5 weeks old and quite energetic little critters each with a very distinct personality. Sam is very mellow and sweet, while chipper tends to be a little more of a character.
We really had a lot of fun visiting with Dan & Linda and Chipper & Sam! Hope you enjoyed the pics, wish you could of been there with us! After the visit, we ended up back in Floodwood at the little community campground which we had all to ourselves.
This was our view of the St Louis River in the morning when we woke up. This is such a wonderful lifestyle!
Note to Nellie: This was a stretch for me since it wasn't a wiring/technical post :) I hope it was decent! Heidi will be contributing a post soon. She promised me she would!
