Right Place Right Time

Bear sightings are very rare around my area.  But, over fall break, I was in the right place at the right time.  I had just driven across the bridge and entered Paulsbo when I saw something I have never seen before in person.  A black bear scampered across the road and into the forest.  I was shocked, I slowed down and looked in the woods hoping to catch one last glimpse but the bear had already disappeared.  Afterwards I was so excited to tell my friends and family that I was lucky enough to have been there when bear decided to cross the street.  After nine years of living here I had finally seen one.  I had only ever heard stories and seen Facebook posts about them.  I realized that they do actually live close by, which is something I hadn’t spent much time thinking about.  I don’t know how they stay so well hidden.

  1. This sounds like a cool “natural” experience, I can only imagine the excitement of seeing this first hand and in the wild. Like you, I have never seen a bear in the wild. I have only seen them captivated in a zoo, which kind of defeats the purpose because it is not really wild.
