7/26/12 Newport- Dover-Foxcroft Rail Trail

Yesterday Kelley had a vet appointment in Newport in the middle of the day ( routine tests and vaccines and everything was fine) so we decide on the nearby rail trail. Only a small part as it is 26 miles long. It is basically a walk through woods on a wide multi-use trail but there are spots where it's close to the Sebasticook Lake. It sprinkled most of the time but I kept my camera in a plastic bag and we got in a 2  1/4 hour walk.

And Kelley- This was good because she could actually swim rather than just lay down in the water

 This daylily was in the yard of a cottage near the lake

 In spite of the sprinkles it was a pleasant hike. Two tiny dogs came out to meet Kelley and a larger dog which followed us all the way back to our car and I had to chase it back toward it's home- it finally went.
