The second day of snow was a bit more rewarding than the first… I had around 5 inches at my house. I know that’s not a lot by most standards, but it’s respectable here. And a great excuse to take another lunch-time walk with the Tay-Boy to see how the park changed with actual snow instead of just slush!
Not surprising, but I stopped a lot to take photos. When I did, Taylor would whine and look at me like, “why are you stopping?! There might be DUCKS ahead!”
I stopped anyway. Usually had to make him SIT and wait so he wouldn’t pull me onward.
It’s a bit challenging to take photos with an eager dog at the end of the leash in your hand.
Taylor had to peek out of each of the look-outs to see if the ducks were there again…
But no luck. Just geese this time.
Then I wanted to take some photos of Tay in front of the cattails. He was being difficult, but I eventually got him to sit facing me… even if he wasn’t looking at me at first.
When I released him, he charged into the creek! He probably thought it was solid because he didn’t take long to turn around and get back out… and I laughed.
Then we found a hawk of some kind… really not sure what he is. I love birds of prey… it may have to do with reading Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar novels about the Tayledras and their bondbirds when I was young. (I still love her books.)
Before heading home, I wanted to check out the little foot bridge over Dogfish Creek.
Lyrics from Moon River were written on the side boards: “moon river, wider than a mile, I’m crossing you in style, someday.”
It was a great place to end our walk… and I think Tay was about ready for his nap!
