Carwyn pondering the events of the day.

Mileage: 1.33 miles
Time: 30 minutes
Temperature: 74° F. (Humidity – 87%)

Garden at Clarke University.

July 7 – Day 51

It has been a few days since we walked.  No real reason other than I have been very lazy.  Carwyn has been playing with his cousin Murphy.  That seems to wear both of them out.

Mileage: 1 mile
Time: 20 minutes
Temperature: 78° F.  (Humidity – 80%)



July 2 – Day 50

Every one is preparing for the 4th of July.  Last night  there was a lot of noise – fire crackers, rockets going off in the neighborhood.  Carwyn was great. He ignored most of it except for a couple of really loud booms.  He lifted his head and gave me a look that said “What the heck was that?”  and then continued is evening nap.

Today we headed out to Swiss Valley Park.  It is about a 20 minute car ride so we don’t go very often.  It has great trails that wind back and forth across a stream.

Mileage: 1.27 miles
Time: 31 minutes
Temperature: 77° F.

If you haven’t read the Declaration of Independence, you should!


Happy Holidays!

We saw lots of rabbits. They all stood very still, without a twitch waiting for Carwyn to walk on by.
