On the drive to the campground we followed a winding detour through wooded hills and pulled up short behind a car stopped in the road. We thought they were watching something and sure enough, over in the field next to us was a fox peering from the undergrowth ~ he walked out and moments later was followed by two lush kits who frolicked for ages on the grass, frisky as puppies. I've never seen fox kits so close for so long. The father had an atrophied leg which he held up but he was quite athletic and seemed unhampered by it. He had raised two healthy kits bursting with life.


We had such a fine camping anniversary and thank you so much for your comments and responses to our wedding photos! I had been wanting to share that day here but was waiting for the right time.
