Venturing out from the security of home

Some more adventurous than others. Several not sure if they wanted to leave the security they knew under the cabin.security of home (1)security of home (3)security of home (2)

From the Narrow Gap~ WP Challange

Last spring we were thrilled to share the rooms above their home. Each afternoon (when it wasn’t pouring rain) we happily watched to see who was the bravest; who would come out the narrow gap under our cabin to play in the tender grass.

They were a busy little crew. It was a daily debate; some said there were 9 siblings other said 7 siblings, two of which were extra feisty and running everywhere. We never saw their parents at this time. We only saw them occasionally later in the afternoon. We suspected that the crew were sneeking out when Mom and Dad went for dinner. đŸ™‚

It’s hard to say but this crew peeking out of the narrow gap may have been the highlight of our trip to Allegany State Park, New York.
