Back After Vacation

May 21, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
After a week or so of pause, otherwise known as vacation we are home and getting back into some normal (not sure if that is good or bad). I loaded up and went to the Olympic National Park or rather to that area. It was somewhere I'd not been before and now it is checked off the list. The best part was of course the beach but the rainforest, Cape Fl...

I do cherish my work from home days and when I sat down this morning at the computer I looked out and found this HUGE fat beauty sitting in my big pine tree out front.

Poodle Paddle

Yes I said I was never taking him on the water again and I didn't stick with it. It was so cold when we put in (35F) that I knew my real paddle buddy Teddy couldn't come and Epic needed some time outside. New rule, he can come but only if I am NOT going to take photos. That boy is the most fidgety dog ever! He would not sit still, just like a toddl...

The story goes that when I pulled up to put the boat in right there at the launch was an amazing big fat loon. I was thrilled and calmly walked back to the truck cab to snag the camera - boom, loon gone. I was sad as I've had bad luck trying to get photos of loons all these years. Alas, he showed back up too far away once we were paddling. Not to f...

Mag-pie PI

We don't see these too often this far out of town but there was one that landed and posed while I was shooting the herons. Now I've always seen these birds as a pest but did you know they are a protected species here in the US? Tough to photograph even in the morning light!

Another First in the Bird Book

A little bunch of Ruddy Ducks! Pretty exciting and as I tried my best to maneuver the kayak so I could get good shots these little buggers were paddling faster than I could. So not the closest shots but still I'm thrilled. Have never seen them at the reservoir and not sure if they'll be staying or are just stopping by for a rest.

Another week flies by! Holy cowabunga people! The weather is still "unstable" but we have managed now 2 afternoons where we have been able to get out on the front deck and boy oh boy do I have happy dogs! Sunshine, warmth and I even broke out the pads for the back "dog lounge" yesterday. Have to bring them in at night since the temps are still bel...

Heck of a Week

I knew going into it I was gonna be really busy but holy cow! Sunday was tricks class for Teddy in Bozeman and we lucked out yet again with the weather which was crappy up till well, Sunday. I took Tinker along with us just to get her out and about and was thrilled when Nancy asked Maggie's Mom if she'd stay and let the girls "play". Well Maggie w...
