6/9/13 City Forest

Rained all day yesterday and we just walked around the neighborhood. Forecast again today but we got in an hour and three quarters at the forest with only very light sprinkles. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice but then more rain is on the way. I tell myself it's good for the garden.

Pretty good outing for Kelley as there was lots of water and we met several people and dogs.
