Lazy Sanibel Afternoon

Here on Sanibel Island there are many racoons and you see them day and night.

Late one afternoon a couple of months ago, this racoon decided to hang over a log in the back yard to have a rest. He took a look up as the picture was taken, and then laid his head back down for a little while before getting up and walking on.

I love how laid back raccoons are. We have a huge one that sits in the big Elm tree off of our deck at night. When we come outside he just sits there watching us and giving himself a bath. I always get the feeling that we should do something interesting for him so he doesn't get to bored.
Love the second photo. All stretched out and relaxed.

I can't believe a raccoon would rest like that! Fantastic pic!

I've had days like that, where I just collapse on the couch!

Nice blogs. Your beaches are so nice looking. Unfortunately, where I live the beaches always get an "F" on their health and cleanliness report card from the water district.

Hi Tootie,

Thanks for the comment on my site. It is a beautiful place, as is where you live.
I'd love some new subjects to photograph. I use to visit Florida when my grandparents were still living. Didn't own a digital camera back then, darn!
You pup is so cute in costume.
