色んな出会い Various Encounters
It was a beautiful spring-like day. It wasn't even cold going down-hill in short sleeves. I saw various creatures along the way. On the way up, I took a rest on a bridge. Suddenly, about 20 seconds later, a deer took off from near me (about 15 meters). It must have been taking a nap. Then, on the way down-hill, I saw a fox (which ran down the road in front of me for about 50 meters). I had lunch at a dam and leisurely watched the ducks. Then on the way back, I had a few more encounters.
Lastly ........... I came around a corner and there was a car on the road. At that moment, a man got out of the car and pulled out a knife. I wondered what the heck he was up to. Then he noticed me and looked a little startled. There was a deer's carcass in the stream. I wonder what he was going to do with that knife. On the way up, I didn't see that deer. Mysterious!
