A 52-Week Photo Journey

Week 15 – #50 Up Close


A visit to Chattanooga would not be complete without a visit to the local Waffle House to check on the groundhogs who have dens in the rocky hillside behind the restaurant. Saying they’re fat is an understatement. The people who eat regularly at the Waffle House know about them and give leftover waffles and bread to them which, in my opinion, is not a good thing since it makes them dependent. On this day, I walked behind the restaurant with my camera to photograph them. They are not at all afraid of people and this one walked up close to me waiting for a handout, which I, of course, had handy. πŸ™‚ Up on his hind legs he stood and gently took the bread from my hand.

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).

  1. I’ve never known anyone to have taken a picture of a groundhog! Nice close-up!. πŸ™‚


  2. Matt used to have a resident groundhog in his backyard….don’t know if he’s still there or not!


  3. Very cute! But I do worry about their cholesterol numbers!
