Doe, a Deer…

No, it’s not Christmas yet, although the stores seem to think it is. I’m talking about the animals with the big eyes and little tails. We just returned from a week on Orcas Island, one of the islands in the San Juan Islands in Washington state. We were amazed at the number of deer on the island and how friendly they were. With places on the island named Doe Bay and Deer Harbor, we shouldn’t have been surprised.

Visiting Doe Bay

We had a number of deer come by the house where we were staying. The tall grass below the deck seemed to be a popular place to bed down for the night. Kendall was intrigued but didn’t bark at them. She watched them with great interest from the deck above.
