Rainy and I decided to take a break from the constant remodeling and take a walk on the Rail Trail this morning. I brought my camera and was thinking so much occurs on our walks that I need to record on film and then write about so I can always remember these peaceful and yet fun times we have together.
Right off the bat there was high drama occurring when we started. It was the Magpies. They must have had a nest near by because they were not happy at Rainy’s visit to their neck of the woods and didn’t mind telling her about it for the first mile of our walk. They bounced back and forth on the trail trying to keep Rainy’s attention focused on them rather than their nest. I love Magpies. They have so much moxy and love to torment dogs. But I think in this case they saw her as the tormentor.
Then we noticed a horse. These horse creatures are perplexing to Rainy. She is just not too sure what they are but she gives them a wide berth which is probably best. I am just curious to see how she will react when Rosie comes home to live in our back yard.
Right then a flock of birds startled Rainy as they flew to the trees and watched her watch them.
We then just ran around and sniffed until we came across a field of goats. These too are a bit odd and better left alone. At that point her tongue was hanging down to her knees and we wrapped things up. It was a beautiful morning and I was in great company with Rainy, Magpie, horse and goats. I wonder what we will discover tomorrow?
