Yesterday Kelley went to Essex woods with friends and their dog so no pictures or description. It was very hot yesterday ( got up to 88) but they went early while it was still comfortable and brought her home very muddy. Luckily she decided to use her wading pool to clean up- she often seems not interested in it.
We still have not had rain so I went for sure water today. It's also a bit cooler, especially near the ocean.
We parked at the SE corner of the pond and walked a short way to the West Side Trail. I always take a picture of the pond from the end.
Lots of lily pads but the flowers are mostly gone.
More pictures of Kelley in the pond. Though we took the trails through the woods and back on the carriage road, I only got pictures of the pond.
This young dog was very energetic and wanted Kelley to play. He kept following her and trying to engage her but she just wanted to swim
Kelley did well today - lots of water and more people and dogs than usual ( I thought tourist season was over) which Kelley enjoyed - especially the people. 2 hours including chat time.
