A couple of weeks ago when I was down at my stream I saw something that loomed in the water but I got no more chance to see it. In the afternoon I decided to go down there again and wait for a couple of hours. Nothing happened the first hour, no life neither on the water or on land. Not even the little dipper wanted to join me. So goes another half hour. Then suddenly the Mink was sitting there on the edge of the ice opposite me. During the next fifteen minutes I could follow the Mink fishing and running around at the shore before it got tired of me and disappeared.
