Morning visitor

Murrells Inlet, SC
Huntington Beach State Park site #119

We enjoyed sleeping late and had a leisurely breakfast.  Out of the corner of our eyes,  we saw a furry critter in a tree just a few feet up from our dinette window.  The first thought was that it was a very big squirrel but there were rings around the tail.  It was a raccoon about 20 feet up a tree.  We watched him scratch an itch as he watched people walk on the CG road beneath him.  After a few minutes, he moved up a branch to a clump of leaves.  We thought it was a squirrel's nest, but apparently it was his home.  He curled up for a nap.  I never knew they slept in trees.

Later in the morning, I was sitting in a lounge chair outside just relaxing when I saw an owl silently glide through the woods and land on the ground.  The woods are too thick to get any photos but it's so nice to just enjoy nature from your front porch.  We like this campsite a lot.  I didn't have to climb up the ladder to get the satellite dish down.  It's a vu qube.  It works from the roof of our MH or from the ground with the proper cable.  That'll come in nice when it's time to pack up too.

It was a very windy day and the CG was a bit crowded with the week end warriors so we just had a very relaxing day around the campsite.  We'll try to get out more tomorrow but we both needed some down time.
