The road to the regular dog park was blocked this evening. Not sure if the road was impassible due to last night’s storm or what, but we had to make a trip to a different park. It was dusk and in the park just across the narrow parking lot from the dog play area, we noticed some evening visitors.
A sudden sound, like music from a passing vehicle, spooked the herd and they were off into the brush. I was still surprised that I could walk from the dog area, across the parking lot and into the field without the deer running. In the field, there was a soccer practice in progress. And a herd of deer at the outskirts. Pretty amazing.
