CAMPING & A SKUNK
If you follow my blog, you might know that we took up camping a couple of years ago at the suggestion of my best friend.
The first year, my two kids and I tried to sleep in an itty-bitty tent and got TOTALLY rained out the second day. That's my daughter rinsing her toothbrush in the rain.
Last year, my air mattress deflated and my tent was defective. Oh-so-very defective!
This year was nearly perfect, but we had a very LOUD skunk visit our campsite the first night. We had foolishly left a nearly empty trash bag out. It had two teeny-tiny lettuce leaves in it, and that's all. We thought SURELY those teeny leaves wouldn't attract any animals. After all, we were camped on an entire field of fresh grass, weeds, and other assorted herbage for a hungry skunk to enjoy. Well, we were wrong. The skunk insistently and LOUDLY clawed at the bag from 11:30-12:15ish! While clawing he made irritated-sounding, high-pitched grunting and growling noises. Perhaps he was hoping the bag held something more delicious than lettuce? Here are some photos from the other parts of our trip.
