A strange combination

Bunnies and eagles. Bunnies and eagles, you say??? Yup, kind of like the lion and the lamb of biblical fame (although I don't know if they co-exsist quite so peacefully). We went up to the northwest corner of Washington state because we had heard that up to 400 eagles come to winter in the Skagit valley and feed on salmon there. What we didn't realize until we got there was that although 400 had been sighted in December, the sightings were down to about 20 in February! Ooops! Next time I'll read the literature better! We did see one eagle. And the bunnies? Well we saw hundreds of those! We stayed at a cute family-run resort called the Skagit River Resort It's a 50's style resort with cabins, a B&B, a campground, a restaurant and a roadside chapel. Go here to learn the story of how the bunnies came to live at the resort. It was a restful weekend including a walk by the river, a wonderful dinner by Kerry, sitting by the fire and exploring the surrounding area. Oh yeah, and feeding the bunnies. Extra bread is left on trays by the restaurant so that anyone can feed them. They seem to be in groups (herds?, packs?), each clan staying in their section of the property, We would meander by them and up they would hop, waiting for us to toss bread for them. Most were brave enough to eat right out of our hands, although we didn't try to pet them. All in all, it was a delightful weekend and we hope to visit again in December when the eagles return.
