I often take Vanessa for walks after dark. My night vision is still pretty good, so I often don’t bother with a flashlight. A park member mentioned to me that she was not able to see me the other night because I was wearing dark clothes and Vanessa is VERY black. She made me aware that, although I can see okay, I am not seen by others. I will be carrying a small flashlight in the future and will put reflective tape on my jacket.
