Wednesday evening after our hike Kelley was not herself. She was not lame but had to be coaxed inside for her supper ( a first) and then she just wanted to be left alone. I thought perhaps she had got into something in the woods that she shouldn't have but in the past when she has done that ( twice) she just threw it up and was fine. Thursday morning she seemed her old self but I decided we should have a day off and just did a short walk around the neighborhood. No sign of a problem all day and fine this morning.
A near perfect day- sun and 60's with a very slight breeze. We headed for the park and Kelley's favorite hike. We did the loop indicated above- one we often do because there is water most of the way. We met a nice couple from Vancouver on the West Side Trail but after that we had the trails to ourselves. Kelley was very enthusiastic - in and out of the water and showing no sign of her off day.
The pond was lower than I have ever seen it.
Leaf on one of the bog bridges- most of the woods are still green
On the carriage roads over to Harbor Brook
This was a very nice hike, especially since Kelley was her usual enthusiastic self. 3 hours
