So I couldn't go for a hike in the mountains or in the hills, so I chose to go to our park on my drive home from the city.
Parked the car and the dog and I started to walk along the path, first thing we spotted of course was another person walking a dog. Sasha just loves to meet people but isn't too friendly with other dogs, so we had to walk around them. For a little dog (she's a yorkie) she thinks she's a bull mastiff in size.
We continue along the trail and sport a chipmunk scurrying across the path, that's sets her barking. But we keep going. 15 minutes to the end of the trail and we are now going down the grassy hill down to the beach. I live right beside the Atlantic Ocean, and this is a beautiful sandy beach (of course I forgot my camera home so no pics to share). It was overcast and not to warm so there were no swimmers or sunbathers on the beach.
the tide was out so it makes for a wonderful walk, we walked as far along the beach as we could, then came to the rocks and turned around and headed back to the path that leads through the grass back up on the trail.
Along the trail there are other trails that go down towards the beach, and I glance back at one of those trails and I couldn't believe it.... there was a fox scooting down the trail. Sasha didn't spot it, don't know why, maybe the wind was in the wrong direction, but we kept on going.
It was a nice invigorating walk... but after my 7 hour return trip to the city and then my walk, tonight I'm played out.
