So as those of you with dogs know, life is sometimes all about the routine. At some point in every single day (unless we're away), Sadie and I walk down the same street.
If it's morning & I'm rushing to get to work, we walk to our first landmark, the first fire hydrant (making our round trip about 0.4 miles). If I have a little more time, we walk down to the second landmark, fire hydrant #2 (about 0.6 of a mile round trip). And if we have enough time, we walk all the way to the end of the road, which makes our round trip 1.1 miles.
I don't usually have time for the full walk in the mornings, or on dark winter evenings, but on weekends and summer evenings, we always go the full distance. I love this time, this 20-30 minutes of shambling down the road and taking in the day. Sometimes the reservoir along the road looks like this:
Yesterday, it started to melt a bit, so it looked more like this around the edges:
On the return trip yesterday, we wandered off the road and down a narrow path by a stream. I took some video of the burbling stream and the slight springy feeling to the scene.
Today, that same stream looked like this:
Waah, waah. Whatever - I know spring is coming someday!
