Around these parts mention The Cove and people know you’re talking about Crockett’s Cove. Frankie had the day off and I guess Buddy and I have been acting a little stir crazy lately so she took us for a ride in The Cove to get a little fresh air.
This is some of what we saw:
She was probably 150 yards away when I shot this from Godzilla’s passenger side window. That new lens really brings ‘em in close!
At sunset there are hundreds of deer in the fields lining each side of the road. When we were there (mid afternoon) only one came out to pose for me. Local lore says the redder the coat on the deer is in the spring, the hotter the summer will be. We’re in for a scorcher!

Same as above at max zoom w/55-250MM IS lens, handheld
Last but not least using 150-500MM stabilized lens, handheld
Heavy traffic on Cove Road
They even have warning signs
I think the guy driving that tractor even posed for the sign!
Don’t know if it’s still in use but I like it!
Uh, oh…..time to go home!
You know, writing this post brought up a couple of points to ponder.
I’ve noticed, not for the first time, that I must be turning into a country boy. Why else would I equate the aroma of fresh cow manure with clean air?
I also wonder how Frankie could tell I was going stir crazy.
Have I been acting crazier than usual?
Is that possible?
Is she collecting evidence for an imminent commitment hearing?
Should I start practicing getting out of restraints?
Am I really gonna want to escape from my restraints?
