I work in the wilds of South Jersey. It’s probably three miles in a straight line to Center City Philadelphia, but the waves of McMansions are just starting to crash against the shore of farmland here. Portions of the industrial park are still undeveloped and overgrown with scrub forest.
Yesterday, as I worked my way through the industrial park towards the Interstate on my way home after work, I saw something I have not seen before and certainly did not expect to see here: a wild turkey ran across the road in front of me.
It was quite a treat.
