When the whole Festive Season gets a little too much for you, take a tip from Sparky the squirrel; chill out and relax.

Talk about taking a chill pill, I think Sparky must have swallowed the whole packet!

I saw this little chap hop up onto the top of my fence. He tried out a position on the first gate post. Not finding this to his liking, he sauntered along the top of the gate, pausing to have a scratch at the next pole. Then he stretched himself out to catch a little sun.

Although it is summer here and temperatures are often in the mid to high thirties, (I quickly specifyΒ Centigrade here for my American friends!) there has been a strong wind most days (up to 12 m/s – 27 mph) which (fortunately) cools it down.

Obviously it was a little too cool for Sparky, hence the sunbathing chillax session.

I have to add, that it really doesn’t look all that comfortable!


post script: I like that he feels safe enough to stretch out here on my fence and take a short nap. He’d be safer in a tree, but he wouldn’t catch the rays then.

      Yes Sparky was cute – on the fence and not in my roof! πŸ˜€
      I just get used to still hearing Fahrenheit and miles in American movies. πŸ™‚

    Sparky sunbathing makes me dump everything around and head to a beach 😁😁😁 he seems really cozy there I think ! He seems to have shed his coat I think, because of summer ?

      haha Yes, it is certainly a summer picture πŸ™‚
      Actually, I don’t notice a difference in their summer or winter coats – it never gets that cold here, so I don’t think they need a winter one? πŸ™‚
