Unwinding With Nature

Bunny here, working at the keyboard again!

I know lots of people have long faces on Monday morning as they go back to work, and a lot of us dogs have long faces as we watch them go.  So, I thought I'd share a bit of our Friday night hike to take us all back to a happier place.

Aunt Julie had asked Mom and Dad if they wanted to go out Friday night, and they all agreed that a hike would be a nice thing to do.  They decided to have dinner together and then go walk at one of our favorite nearby places.  So, after they ate pasta, we all headed to Farmdale Park.

It was a really nice day Friday, so the temperature was cool enough for Morgan and me to go.  We started walking and it wasn't long before we spotted a doe and fawn.  Actually, quite a few deer were out and they weren't very shy.  Morgan had a rather close encounter with a buck on the way back that nearly resulted in Dad skidding down a muddy hill again, but fortunately disaster was averted this time. 

There are some neat meadows and clearings along the way, too.  The butterflies were certainly enjoying the nice weather like the rest of us.  It was fun to watch them flitting about.

One of the fun things about this place is that you have to cross the creek four times on the trail.  I love hiking through the creek and I think Morgan liked it too.  The people were having fun with it as well. 

Soon, it started getting dark, so we had to head for home.  I can't say I was disappointed, though.  The mosquitos were going crazy out there!  I was afraid they'd eat me alive, even after Mom sprayed us both with bug spray.  Next time I'm going to roll in citronella before we go out there!

It was still a great time and I'll be dreaming about it while I'm sleeping on the couch waiting for Mom to get home!

  6. That looks like a beautiful place to hike. Did anyone chase te butterflies?? I`m a cat, I have to ask.


  7. Thanks for sharing, Bunny! Mondays are not popular in my house either.

    Your pal, Pip

  8. It sounds like a great walk - a creek, a buck, a chance to pull dad down a muddy hill. What more could you want? It even sounds like Morgan is starting to like water! I bet the mosquitoes really bug you, Bunny, with your thin fur. I hope that they leave you alone! Our K gets bit next to her eyes where the fur is thin, and her eyelids swell up, but not for too long. I hope that doesn't happen to you!

  9. What a beautiful nature walk - I bet the creek was the best part!!


  10. Those are great pictures! Everytime we try to take a butterfly picture when we're hiking, the flutterby flies off!

  11. Lovely butterfly! We don't see many of those here.

    Mosquitoes are horrid buggies. Hope you didn't get too many bites.

  12. We go on new explorations and daytrips most weekends - its great isnt it?! Your pictures are great, love to chase that deer *snicker*. We are lucky here in Canada.... LONG WEEKEND, NO WORK MONDAY!!

  14. Sound like a lovely time.

    On a completely different note: would you email me privately? I have something to send to you.



  15. Fur some reason, Mom started skhratching herself as I pawed this khomment -

    Great post with LOTS of fun - fur the most part!


  16. Oh, nice walkies, except the creek crossing, which neither Franklin or I would do. We go inside if the sprinkler's on in a little corner of the yard. But all the rest looks like pawsome fun and good for you all, too.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  17. Next time, could you get a video of Morgan pulling your dad? We always like to compare notes and learn new techniques for that.

  18. But...don't you dogs always have long faces? ;)

  19. Hi, Bunny!
    Yes! Mondays are not funny!
    But sure you made ours better reading your post!
    Sounds like a pawesome place for hiking!
    Kisses and hugs

  20. We enjoy being out walking and trekking in the great outdoors, very relaxing for humans & canines!

  21. What a wonderful walk you had seeing deer and baby deer and walking in the stream. We live in the city so we don't get all of the fun that you do when we are out and about. You are so furry lucky.

  22. grrreat hike, miss bunny! it's hard to top wading through a creek and seeing deers and sniffin' flowers and chasin' butterflies!! :)

  23. You saw A LOT of neat creatures on your walk! I'll bet that cool creek water felt good on your tootsies. =)

  24. Those are some awesome pictures! (I know, it helps when you have superior models, but that's some very nice photography!)
