I hadn’t been to Oatman in about 15 years. It’s a little western town, literally, frozen in time. In fact, the only thing that was different was back in the day we could buy carrots from shopkeepers to feed the wild donkeys. Now, they only sell alfalfa cubes because, apparently, carrots give donkeys diabetes. Who knew? Oh, and the donkeys are a lot more aggressive. They almost reminded me of the seagulls at Sea World when one is carrying fish to feed the dolphins and sea lions. Once, I was knocked to the ground by a hungry seagull who promptly stole my five pieces of fish for which I paid $3.
There were a lot of babies this time of year and one female who was due any day. Her picture is on my Instagram as I took it with my phone.
It’s definitely a very quaint town that is worth visiting.
