Walking along the shore in Hayward with Nancy, I saw a tail moving in the brush. It was black and white and look awfully like a skunk. Despite the fact we had been chatting as we walked up, we didn’t seem to have spooked it. We stopped and waited to see it come out. Sure enough, it walked on to the trail. However, the sound of the shutter as I took some shots made it jump and it turned right around and ran back into the brush. Nancy commented that it was the first time she had seen a skunk moving around. All of the others she has seen were on the highway. It was definitely a first for me too.
