A couple of weeks ago Adam looked out his window and was surprised to see a buck swimming up the Canal. It happened to be the first day of hunting season, which might explain why the deer took to the salt water.
The deer got out of the water near the oyster farm, only to be chased right back into the Canal by a wayward Area Dog, seen below reclining with squash:
And then we got worried that the exhausted deer would drown, so Nathan and Roberto took off in the little yellow boat to steer it towards shore. Eventually they got it back to shore, and it ran safely across the highway and up into the woods.
Area Dog, notorious oyster hound, wannabe deer chaser.
