Then we got closer as we only had a Nikon coolpix 2100 camra with 3x zoom.this deer was joined by two other we stayed for about 20 minutes watching them and then withdrew with out disturbing them. As we were leaving a family went onto the beach and prompley ran up the sand slope scarying them off :rolleyes:
