It's Raining But Went Walking Anyway!!

Friday, April 27, 2012

Took Thursday and Friday off this week thinking I would spend it outside!! It started raining mid morning on Thursday!! Oh well I've been reading alot! There was a little break in the rain looked at my dogs and asked do you want to go for a walk and they were ready to go!! Got out the rain coat and rain pants, loaded the dogs up in the car. And away we went. As soon as we got where I wanted to walk it started to rain but oh well we're covered. It smelled so good, nice and fresh. The dogs had a great time running, these are the same two dogs who the last couple of days have given me the look are you nuts we're not going out there it's raining!! Walked about a mile, trying to work back at it slow and not over due, I just want to keep going.

Had a beautiful drive back, stopped and took pictures of choke cherries blossoms, sand cherry blossoms, some pretty yellow flowers, a blue flower, two turkeys and some mule deer. Thought I was going to share them in this blog but for some reason can't get them to down load so will have to share the pictures later.

    emoticon even with a threat of rain and in the rain- you got out there! emoticon Sounds like you all had an enjoyable time!
I love walking as you know! I had been sore from our walks, Wednesday and Thursday, and yesterday I said, I feel like a walk. DH suggested this one place and I am not a fan, because you have to drive back on a 3 mile dusty road to get to the trail by the ocean (that is the best one)-you have to wash the car afterwards (ugh). So, I gave in and was I so glad, it was so gorgeous and felt so good afterwards! Just to smell the ocean air, see the boats going by, people out fishing, birds, -even the sky was a pretty blue. I hope you do post your photos- I know sometimes if I switch between google chrome and internet explorer when that happens, it will work for some reason, on one and not the other sometimes.
Have a nice weekend!! emoticon

    Walking in the rain is essential if you live in the UK, it's almost daily!

    Sounds like everyone had cabin fever. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon, reading a good book, then a walk.
