And this is why I’m not a nature guy…
A couple of weeks ago we were walking through Halibut Point Park with another family, the Daniels. Halibut Point is one of the area’s true gems with gorgeous vistas, easy to navigate trails, nice spots to stop and picnic, it’s just fantastic and if you haven’t gone I’d say it’s in the top ten list of things to do when you visit.
While we’re walking through Halibut Point we hear a bullfrog. Matt Daniels, great guy and the dad in the other family hops onto a rock, spots the bullfrog and snatches the thing up in his hands. Just like that he had a bullfrog in his hands, showing it to all the kids.
Now the thought of reaching down and grabbing a frog is just not anything I’d ever think of doing. Grabbing a frog holds about as much appeal to me as handling a steamy turd barehanded.
When I encounter wildlife all that runs through my head is how the creature is going to attack me or peck my eyes out or rip my guts out and leave me there with my entrails hanging out waiting for the buzzards to come and finish me off.
Anyway, this video here confirms all my suspicions about wildlife-
Here is Matt Daniels holding the frog we saw at Halibut Point State Park-
I see you looking at me killer attack frog. I’m watching you watching me!
