So yesterday I called my wife from school, she's in the pool and proceeds to tell me what exciting event happened to her.
There she is in the pool, lounging on her favorite floaty reading her book. Then all of a sudden she hears what sounds to be a ball thrown into the pool. Now it's just her and the dog at the house. See looks over and sees the dog laying down. She glances over and see a squirrel climbing out of the pool.
We have a large Oak tree about 15 feet or so from the pool but part of the canopy is over the pool. The only thing she can figure out is the squirrel fell from the tree. I'd like to think that the water is so clear and inviting he did a armstand back double somersault tuck dive.
If it was an accident and he fell from the tree he was very lucky because a foot over and he would have hit the concrete deck. Guess we would have had squirrel stew. Anyways this dive master squirrel climbed out of the pool soaked and climbed up the tree and has been out of sight since.
This has been our second wild animal visit. About 2 weeks ago we had a raccoon take a drink from the pool and head off. The strange thing is we're in a residential neighborhood. Yes, there are trees but overall it's a pretty busy neighborhood.
Shallow end and tree are at the top of the picture.
