BRILLIANT WALK DAY


As the title says,
we awoke to a bright blue sky
not so warmish day
(but who really cares, right)
 so off to Point Pleasant Park
we headed because the guys promised.


Seriously if there was a 7th heaven I was in it.


This walk was so full of furry friends and laughter,
I'd say a 7th heaven really is where you find it!


~ and I found it ~


a deep inhale
~~ HOLD ~~
then exhale


and move on


because there is so much more to find


just follow me
as you always do


LOVE is in the park!


Jim and I are heading down this route.
It's the middle of a circle 8 trail
we make when we decide to avoid the hills.
Ron heads back to the car
while I seek out more new friends
and
enjoy every ounce of this brilliant walk day!

  1. Beautiful, look at those piles of snow heaped up at the side, and where are your snow booties?? I know the Dads had theirs on!!! What a wonderful world.

    1. Snow everywhere and careful footing as we plod along.

      Don't want to slip.

      Well, to let you in on a big secret......as I type the rain is pouring down and HOPEFULLY all the white stuff will be gone.

      Sorry but winter has outlived it's appeal this year!!

  2. The combination of dry snow and deep azure sky is really lovely. Adding Sophie to the mix is icing on the cake. What breed is the white fluffy dog in the group canine shot?

    1. That's a GoldenDoodle (Golden Retriever / Poodle mix) Craig. These dogs literally are at every corner in the park and elsewhere. Our Sophie is a Labradoodle (Chocolate Labrador Retriever / Poodle mix).
      They are a very loving and friendly dog....somewhat bouncy...and energetic....so if you were so inclined then beware. Sophie nudged me many a time in the knees. She learned quickly though.
      Are you thinking of getting another pooch.....I think that would be an excellent idea!

    2. We're always thinking Ron! We give to an Old English Sheepdog charity every month and at the moment they have a tragic abandoned young male, Charlie, http://oesrescue.weebly.com/charlie.html who needs surgery because his hip keeps popping out every time he walks so he ends up hopping. We've supported his charitable medical fundraising and I think he will get the operation he needs. Check out the link, he's adorable.I've not seen a goldendoodle here! We have quite a few labradoodles (hooray) and tons of Cockapoo's (THE trendy dog here). What keeps us back is that Clive isn't mobile enough to walk a dog and if I have to go on a very rare business trip, he's not really fit to take him/her on a decent walk. Not fair on the dog.

  7. Hey, Ron! At least you got a little sunshine. I love bright blue and white days. Right now it's cold, grey, and gloomy here, but because of the warm sunshine we've had the past few days, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s (Fº), most of our snow is gone. I looked out the patio door to see the temperature (20º F/ -6.7º C), and there was a guy playing golf! Alone of course! Point Pleasant Park looks awesome under it's snowy blanket. We might get snow tonight. Have a happy, loving week!

    1. Golf, very strange or very addicted it would appear. We had another snow / rain / flash freeze this lovely Sunday. The driveway is now a skating rink. Hey, you and Terry bring your skates over and we can carve up the driveway then have hot chocolate after. DEAL !?! DEAL!!!

      Ron here!

    2. Deal! I would love that, Ron!
