It was a gorgeous day for a walk, hot but not humid, nice breeze... I decided that Charlie and I would go for leisurely walk to the pond. So I doused myself in DDT (to keep those annoying little flies away), leashed up Charlie, and off we went.
|Off we go! We don't have "real" sidewalks, just these weird |
asphalt ones which aren't well-maintained. I guess they consider this "The Country"?!
|The regular route is closed because they're re-doing a bridge on our street. Very annoying! |
So we had to go down the hill...
|The first time I walked Charlie, fire hydrants terrified her. |
Now... "Piece of cake, mom!"
|One problem we have around here is poison ivy, lots of it. It makes a walk difficult |
because the vines hang from the trees and the leaves dangle over the sidewalks.
I'm extremely allergic, so I keep my distance!
|We took a rest when we got to the pond, but Charlie had too much |
to sniff and check out! No resting for this girl!
|On the way back, it's ALL uphill. This photo doesn't give justice to |
the "gentle" incline we faced.
|But wait! Is that Brad?! Maybe he'll give us a ride!|
|Home, sweet (air conditioned) home!|
I took a cold shower and Charlie - well, she took a nap!
