Along the boardwalk this time of year, young animals are in abundance. It is a pleasure to walk with them and enjoy the sights and sounds. Chipmunks are among the young and my husband and I spent time recently enchanted with two we called the Hole in the Boardwalk Gang.
These two are tiny, probably this year’s kits, just making their way in the world of the boardwalk.
They discovered or chewed a hole in the wood along the trail and spend their time poking their heads out of the hole to the delight of walkers of all ages
who give them peanuts and seeds. It is impossible to see the duo and not smile.
We’ve taken numerous photos and watched others do the same.
The two are a delight to young and old alike who stop and chat with fellow chipmunk admirers, 2 meters apart of course.
Our latest conversation revealed there are three little rodents appearing through the same hole. I’d love to have that photo.
