Today is Allan’s birthday, so we went on an adventure to surprise him for lunch. Afterward, we took a walk at Roberts Memorial Park – and proceeded to get muddy. Zeke had fun frolicking, even after he slipped on the sandstone. We even ran into (almost literally) two tiny snakes. Thankfully the rain held off until just after we got back to the car. The drive back down home was pretty good. Even with the sections of pouring rain, the hills looked beautiful with the misty clouds tangled in the trees. Not a bad way to spend a Wednesday.
Zeke is Adam’s newly adopted dog. He’s only nine months old, so he still has a bit of growing left to do (!!!). He may still be a puppy, but he did great on our walk down the beach today – despite one or two little dogs taking offense to his presence.) So far I’ve determined he likes to lick you, isn’t sure about large bodies of water (waves are scary), and he can lick the cat food right out of their tunnel feeder. He has skills.
It was a perfect early spring day. Not too warm or cold, and though a few drops fell we avoided major rain. Everything is blooming now, including the hill of daffodils at Beacon Hill Park. Zeke’s a little too energetic to sit still for long, but maybe next year he’ll be calm enough to try a shot of him in the flowers :)
