I was about to take a picture of a cat that I saw on a rock next to the water and I heard my dog start barking and my parents were yelling at me to walk over to them. I look in front of me and sitting next to the palm tree, was a giant raccoon. I couldn't believe it. I also really wanted a picture of it, so as it started to run up the tree, I snapped this picture of it. I always hear these stories about how they are viscous and how you shouldn't be near them, but the ones that I saw were very skittish and ran away at the flash of my camera. They were super cute though!
This is a photo from my trip to Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia. It is a small village with the main attraction the light house and boat rides.
