SULLIVAN'S POND


Last night we went for a drive to a pond that I haven't visited before.
It's called Sullivan's Pond in the Heart of Darkness, I mean Dartmouth !
Ha Ha Ha Ha
Sorry, this is a locals' ~~ "in joke".
It was getting dark
but not even close to the dark some peeps joke about.


I sat beside Ron while this feller zipped by on his Razor Scooter.
Hey buddy, do you need some help with that?
Doesn't look like it!


The fountain was playing it's MAGIC
while Jim whispered sweet nothin's in my ear.


Jim kindly pointed out that many ducks live here
and that if I was a "good" dog
I could watch one "take off " ~~~





I thought this feller did pretty good for jumping in the water.


White geese appeared to live across the pond on that green lawn with their very own lighthouse.


The action was everywhere.
Dartmouth really is lucky to have this pond.


Someone said the other day they enjoyed my backseat poses.

Here's another one for you all !
I'm heading home from Sullivan's Pond now.

Cheers !

  1. Oh, wow, what a lovely adventure you had! How I wish I can also take my dog, Nemo, for a walk to a lovely pond. Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of ponds here inmy country. What we have are a lot of beaches :-)

  2. Though a good walk, Sophie....and a beautiful place, we think your running free on the beaches chasing Mr O have to be the best places for you.

    1. I must take you to a lake, a Nova Scotia lake some day ~~~ quite a difference in size. I still don't understand why the guys wouldn't let me cool off in that duck water!!

  7. What a lovely pond is is Sophie - I really like the fountain. You were very well behaved in sitting calmly while the duck dived in!

  10. Wow! What an amazing place. How did you ever get the boys to leave? They must have been snapping photos like madmen :) I love that fountain. And the lighthouse! Oh my... I'd have such a hard time getting away from there. How did you NOT dive in?? That certainly must have taken patience and discipline.

    1. The pond appears to be fairly shallow so I guess jumping in wouldn't be too refreshing. MADMEN ~~~ hey that sounds like a good title for a TV series !

      LOL

      Yes they are MADMEN in nature!

      The other side of the pond was spectacular from the sun POV because it was shining through the fountain spray creating all these rainbows and effects. Unfortunately we weren't able to stop and run over fast enough to capture it. Next time though we WILL !
