Katie made me feel guilty enough to make sure she got to go on an adventure this weekend. Knowing that it was going to rain most of Sunday Katie and I headed over to a park late Saturday. We were introduced to this park by Katie’s doggie friend Peep last spring and it’s taken us all this time to visit it again. Because we went on the spur of the moment we couldn’t coordinate with Peep this time but we’re pretty sure we’ll be able to get together again this fall.
This park has a lot of trails through the woods and I figured I’d find a trail head and we’d just walk for a bit. The first place I parked turned out to be the parking lot for disc golf so it was a bit too busy for us, but the picnic area was pretty. The second place we stopped was also a picnic area, but it was empty and had a trail leading back into the woods. So we were off!
It was a lovely afternoon; no bugs and lots of sunshine.
There are a couple lakes at the park too, and we walked down through a boat launch to explore a fishing dock. It moved and squeaked a bit as we walked on it making Katie jump at first. But after she figured out there wasn’t anything scary there she was happy enough to be near the water.
Mostly though we walked on the paths through the woods and enjoyed being out in nature. Lots of squirrels chattering and chipmunks squeaking, but Katie was very good when we did a little recall.
She loves doing recall when we’re at a park. But I only do it once, and only if she is focused on me. She didn’t let a little chipmunk distract her. She’s a very good girl.
And she wants to know what we’re doing next weekend. I don’t know little one…but I’m sure it will be fun!
