It was my own choice, I really like being left on my own. Just that freaked me out a bit. I'm okay now though.
Well you weren't too happy last night about being on your own. It can be great during the day, I agree, but come nightfall things become a little different. Fortunately the nights are fairly short right now - even shorter up here where it doesn't really get totally dark anyway.
Anyway I'm glad you've got over tonight's fright.
