4/28/15 City Forest

Yesterday was mostly rainy and we just walked around the neighborhood. This morning stated out the same way but when it looked like it was clearing we headed for the nearby forest. We started from the top of the meadow and headed down to the beaver pond.

Sun by the time we got there !

And a swim for Kelley

There were other pools of water and she took advantage of many of them

We took a side trail over to the old rail bed and followed it back to where it connects with the west trail.

But first we checked out the marshy section we had been able to cross when frozen. Not until next winter.

When we got up to the West we met a nice couple and their dog that we see fairly often and walked back with them.

We turned off toward the beaver pond and one more swim for Kelley

And up the hill to the car

Turned out pretty well. we enjoyed walking and chatting and Kelley enjoyed all the water. Several more dreary days forecast - it is raining again as I write this. i'm also trying to get some of the garden ready for planting. 


  1. Glad your day turned out so well. LOVE that sky reflected in the first shot--wow! What color.
    Dreary here, and chilly, but good day for edging perennial borders.
    Have a good day, John

    1. Good day to you Sue. We continue to have the same unsettled weather- rain, then sun, then clouds, more rain, more sun. I am at least getting a start on my garden beds.

  2. Love your first shot of the water! And photos of Kelley swimming always make me smile. :)

    1. Thank you Linda- Kelley is really happy that the ice is gone .

  3. I love to see Kelley having such a good time!

    My weather has been a bit dreary of late, too, but we need the rain for the wells and tanks.

    1. Hi Betty- she does love the water.- I wish we could send you some of ours- very soggy here.
