Have you ever seen a white skunk?

Soon after we arrived at Hillman Ferry we heard the tale of the white skunk. We've had a few sightings and fortunately for me I was able to grab some photos early one morning.

Isn't he cute? I'm told our park skunks are so accustomed to humans that they are quite complacent -- and believe me this slowly meandering fellow was quite laid back and oblivious to me following him for a photo shoot -- nevertheless I did keep my distance!


And to go along with our white skunk, how about a blue bellied lizard? That's what I'm calling him, I'm sure he has a proper and official name but I don't know about that. I don't have much knowledge about reptiles. But he is fascinating, isn't he? Look at how intricate those multi-jointed toes are. Woo - what I couldn't do that that kind of dexterity!

Things are rolling along quite well here at the campground. The last two weekends have been exciting with special visitors -- my best friend Tammy, her husband Brian and son Tyler came one weekend, then my son Kyle and fiancee Ashley were here last week. I even talked them into some photos -- don't they make an adorable couple? Wedding plans are progressing for next spring. I'm so excited!

And speaking of weddings, a big CONGRATS goes out to my Aunt Mary Ann and Uncle Bob of Kirksville, Missouri who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend. What a milestone!

Have a blessed weekend wherever you are!

I've never seen a white skunk before. Actually I've never seen any kind of skunk before. Only on cartoons! Pepe! I like that blue belly lizard. We have blue tongue lizards here. Wonder if they are related ;)

agWe're at Hillman's Ferry tonight and saw the white skunk, meandering through the campground!

I wonder now whether it's the same one or an offspring. Anyway, thanks for your post, which helped us confirm the sighting!
