An Odd Guest

February 4th, 2016


“Good Morning, Sir. Welcome to the resort. Do you have any bags?”

A different kind of guest showed up at the res0rt this morning, actually guests, plural, as there were about 8 of them. The hotel has an javelina family that frequents the area and have become rather tame. Keep your distance still as they can turn feisty in an instant especially when cornered or with young.
