note: The ferry wake can be serious stuff if you don't steer *good* and clear of the rocks when it comes in! (Don't worry, we didn't have to find out the hard way or anything, just saw the potential danger and thought we'd warn others!)

Lifes tough......................get a helmet!!!!!!!
Soup Dragon, that's one skinny raccoon! He should come across the channel to Protection, where he'd be spoiled by my neighbours, who leave food out for a big family of 'em.

I've been wanting to go to Newcastle all summer, but haven't really had the time. Now I really wanna go! I kayaked around the island years ago, my sister almost got caught in the path of a ferry. She was really freaked out, but thankfully, everyone was okay! It makes a great day-trip
There seem to be a lot more racoons this year! there is a family of raccoons living right by my apartment. They come around in the middle of the night and make their funny racoon noises. There are two babies I think, and two or three older ones. Sooo cute. My bf made raccoon noises at them, and they came to the window lol
Couldn't resist putting the raccoons on my desk top......not an easy task - LOL
The raccoons are the main thing I remember from camping on Newcastle as a kid.
there was an albino raccoon, I remember. he tried to steal our food, but I scared him off when I came back from the beach to grab something
A few years back, we hiked around Newcastle for a day. Imagine the stain and my surprise while climbing up a hill, on the west side, and almost literally running into a raccoon. It was as confused as I was and we did the zig zag dance a couple of times (excuse me, pardon me), grasped the reality of the situation and both fled.....It then almost ran down my family, who were climbing behind me. I must be wrong in thinking that they're mostly nocturnal?
