Sophie and Jim

While visiting with the guys today at Point Pleasant Park....

I got to see some pussy willows...

and Mayflowers
(our provincial flower which was not fully in bloom yet, very soon though)
You should smell these delectable darlings.

I caught up to this fuzzy wuzzy 
and had what I thought would be a quick chat...

However, there was no slowing down for any meaningful conversation.

We trekked by some regrowth trees which are starting to make their faces known.
In 2003, Hurricane Juan devastated our park and Mother Nature is bringing her back.

Today, I felt very calm and at peace.
With my sitting session with Jim at the beginning of my sojourn,
I think it helped to set the tone for a great meet and greet 
throughout the whole park.


  1. The bench looks like a great place to sit and contemplate the meaning of life!!! : )

  2. Never a dull moment with you, Sophie. What a beautiful area - where you live. You sure do love that orange ball, don't you??

  3. Much more peaceful than Martinique Beach.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  4. Another beautifuld day at the park! Lucky you!

  5. I had never seen a May Flower, thanks, Sophie!

    It looks like you had a great day, it's always a great day, when you can spend it with a good friend!

  6. Hurray for pussy willows! Had to laugh at that very hairy dog - what a cutie...

    I seem to remember that verse about tulips from my schooldays too!

  7. What a great view from your bench

  8. When you're on a mission, there's no time for chit-chat! Yay for balls!!

  9. Mother Nature can be cruel, but she sure has a way of fixing things like your beautiful park! I'm glad you've had another fun and relaxing adventure!!

  10. You take us to some beautiful places, Sophie! Looks like you found a friend or two. Did they get to play with Mr. Orangie? I do love that last shot. What a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view!

  11. What a beautiful park to visit! You are such a cutie, Sophie! Thanks for stopping by and following our blog!! :) We look forward to keeping up with you!

  14. This post seems very peaceful compared to the waves from the previous post. It's good to have peaceful days like this one.

    Do you take your orange ball everywhere? Our dogs start to carry their orange balls but then lose them... They could learn a thing or two from you!

  15. Just love the photos of you and your friend bursting down the path! Solitude to think is good every now and again Sophie.
