Lumsden Pond at Lumsden Dam!

Have a look at this huge body of water called Lumsden Pond.
 This is the dam at one end of the waterway.
Beside the dam is a small beach which hasn't changed much since the 1950's
 when Ron came here as a child to swim...
and now I'm here enjoying these waters just as much as he did.
The winds were very warm which were so welcomed after driving for an hour from cooler temps.
I really took advantage of the swimming and my greens!
 Just before we left to go to the guys' favourite restaurant....I back scratched,
 shook like mad,
and took in the view with the hopes that we'd come back here again soon.


  1. Beautiful place! Oh Sophie, you sure do love your water!

  2. I can't keep up with you bud what an exciting life you live...

  3. Now I see, Sophie, why you refused to get into the car when we were were having too much fun!

  4. Sophie, you are really surrounded by too much water! You need to send to send some to poor Stumpy who is stuck in the desert!

    ^5 and Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
    Stumpy and me

  5. That looks like a fun swimming hole. And, yes, a roll in the grass is definitely on the menu after a good swim.

  6. Dear Sophie,
    I don't know of any other dog who gets to visit (and play at) so many interesting places. You live in a very beautiful area.

    Warm and muggy greetings from Skoog Farm.

  18. Sophie as I looked at all the photos,, one made me think,,,
    it was the one with you in the water and your dad sitting on the bank watching you play.
    It reminded me of a father,, spending time with his child...
    ,, the times you spend with your dad are special,, and I love to hear about them.
    So beautiful the places you visit and share with us.
