Another Hike at Jordan Pond
Posted by Sharkey
Franny and I noticed that Martha was posting a blog about one of our favorite hiking places in Maine – Jordan Pond. We suddenly remembered that we, too, had another blog from Jordan Pond to share with you from the last time we were in Maine.
1 Well, I'm all ready to go out hiking, but I sure wish everyone else would put a move on it! It's hard to just sit here when the entire state of Maine is right outside the door!
2 Ahh! Finally! Out walking with my namesake, Kevin Sharkey. Or am I his namesake?
3 Francesca, isn't it great to be back hiking at beautiful Jordan Pond? I hope we'll encounter some exciting wildlife.
4 Well look over yonder, Sharkey! Do you see what I see?
5 It's a squirrel, but it's not gray like the ones in Bedford. Why do you think this one is red? Maybe it's a bad dye job.
6 No, Franny. It's actually called a 'red squirrel.' Did you know that red squirrels like to keep several nests, usually in tree hollows or subterranean tunnels? And that these critters hoard hundreds of pine cones in each location?
7 And even more interesting, those cute red squirrels are hunted by owls, hawks, and even FRENCHIES! Let's get him!!! Darn these leashes!!!
