3/24/16 Essex Woods

Twenties and cloudy with rain predicted - I didn't feel like going anywhere so we just went to nearby Essex Woods for a short walk.

Patchy snow, ice, and dirt.

A spot Kelley usually gets in the water - but it's ice as you can see by her reflection.

Kelley wasn't very excited either and was lagging behind.

On the way back she tested the ice and found she could smash it and reach water

 to lie down in.

Not much of a hike but we got a little exercise. We met one man with a dog that was very young and energetic and wanted Kelley to play. Kelley declined and just laid down until they moved on. That kind of a day. Forecast for tomorrow is rain and fog. 


  1. Oh dear--sounds like a case of the winter blahs for both of you! At least you still got out!
    That's half the battle.
    Hope the weekend is better. Happy Easter to you

    1. I think the blahs is right- too gray this winter - happy Easter to you too.
