In preparation for my adventure to Mexico to film the Monarchs, nearly every afternoon I have been “hiking” around Eastern Point. According to my car odometer, from the Niles Beach parking lot to the lighthouse and back is just a little over two miles. I realize that I must look fairly comical with headphones, hiking boots, and loaded down with a full backpack, all while trying to dodge the black ice. The walk is always beautiful–the freezing temperatures and icy roads not so much!

Turkey On Eastern Point

We saved a turkey.  Or at least the Mrs thinks we did.  We were taking the kids for a ride and drove down Eastern Point when we made the turn in the road past old Joe Garland’s to the left on the road across from Raymond’s beach there were three turkeys and either a coyote or a wolf a couple steps away from one of the turkeys.  I told the Mrs to get the camera out quick! 

Well as I was lowering the window and the Mrs got the camera out of the diaper bag the coyote (or wolf) trotted off into the woods.  The Mrs was convined that it was about to feast on one of the turkeys but it seemed like they were hanging out at the time and it could have gotten the turkey long before we had got there in that open field.  I wish I could have got that shot, drat!
