Is this Pete the Cat?

Out & About

Remember the classic movie scene where a train or bus goes by and one of two things happens: (1) the person on the other side is no longer there, or (2) there’s now a person on the other side.

Well, recently I was out taking pictures and videos of trains. I was in a location I had never been before but where there’s lots of train action. The only reason I had never been there before is because it’s simply too difficult to get to.

I had been watching trains for 1½ hours and had decided to leave after the next train. Well, after the next train passed, this was on the other side of the tracks:

I’m pretty sure (actually, 100% absolutely sure!) that the cat didn’t jump off the train as it went by but seeing it there reminded me of the beginner-reader book Pete The Cat’s Train Trip by James Dean.

After watching me watching her for about 15 seconds, she took off up the hillside, climbed over a wooden fence, and disappeared.
