I Had to Run Away From Bats

It’s the one year anniversary of this story, so I thought I’d share it again — Ha!

I was finishing up my daily walk as the sun was setting, and I snapped some beautiful photos with deep purple in the sky. Ahhh… So nice.

And I saw a bat. Ooh, cool!

Then another. Then more. Then lots.

And I ended up running out of the woods (and laughing at myself running) because too many bats were flying near me. It was a funny scene. I screamed once. I chuckled. But mostly, my heart was racing.

They kept swooping down near me for bugs. Don’t do that!

Once I got out of the woods, I also laughed imagining the scenario that I’ve been this cautious about COVID only to get rabies.

“Renee was the most disciplined person we knew about not getting COVID, but sadly, she got rabies, refused water, and died.”

Thankfully, I hightailed it out of there.
