This is a great way to relax. To add to the simplicity of this activity is the fact that you can enjoy it in a multitude of ways. Sit with your feet up on the couch under a blanket and watch as squirrels and birds go about their chores. Relax in the hammock or Adirondack chairs and listen to birdsongs. Walk the lane in search of deer. For the adventurous, the land behind the cottage is full of wildlife. Hunting is permitted in the Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area so please be aware of the various hunting periods before heading in that direction.
One night while sitting around the fire ring, we heard strange 'screams' coming from a little ways off. It turns out it was a fox and the scream was its mating call. The sounds at about 1:07 are exactly what we heard. Eerie? Tell us what you think.
