4/30/17 Piney Knoll - formerly Marsh Island


A day without rain. Mid 40's and sunny. Still trying to get Kelley's meds right- cutting back because I thought maybe she was sedated did not work so upped a little today. Once I got her out of the car she did well but slowed down for the end of the hike.

Wasn't a lot to photograph today and I messed up several of those I did take.  But there were touches of green in the tree tops -



and Kelley quickly found some muddy water to get into



When we got to the Penobscot we found it higher than previously seen, overflowing the bank in places. Kelley stayed close



She was more comfortable with the little stream



First insect of the year



There were lots of small pools of water for Kelley


A pleasant outing with the sun and comfortable temps and we got an hour and a half exercise.

  1. We can't get good shots every time, but it's always good to know that Kelley had a good time. :)

  3. Isn't it wonderful to see green leaves starting to show on the trees?

    1. I think you are right about the pools - she doesn't like waves or strong currents
