I'm okay....really...

The other night, I was driving home from my parents' house and enjoying the quiet, peaceful drive. The Island is such a magical place. I was thinking of how lucky I am to be living here. Three years ago, I never even knew this place existed. I was a Torontian (but Montrealer in my heart), an ESL teacher, a world traveler...and now fate has brought me to this wonderful place.

My thoughts were interrupted, and I thought I was going to die. Two very large deer appeared a few feet in front of my vehicle. I honestly didn't know if I could stop in time. I don't even know if I was more worried about wrecking my vehicle or dying than hurting those beautiful creatures. I felt my heart jump into my throat and panicked. *phew* My SUV stopped two feet in front of the deer. They looked into my headlights, stayed a moment and sauntered away into the woods. They were beautiful. They were probably really hungry because they were in hiding from the hunters for a week or so.

Anyway, I'm okay :)

Goodness~ it is freaky, isn't it? Glad you're ok. Now that you're home safe and warm, it's sure putting new lights on life, doesn't it? It's more beautiful... and happier place.

Yeah, it was pretty scary! What a close call! I'm so happy I didn't collide into the deer! They were so pretty just watching me. They looked like they knew that I wasn't going to crash into them LOL! Crazy animals. I just hope no one else drives into them. We've got sooooooooo many deer up on the Island that deer collisions are the number one cause of motor vehicle accidents here. Crazy, eh?
