We have the pleasure of watching our favorite grand-dog Parker for a couple of weeks. He is a peach and looking for adventure every time he's outdoors. One day we decided to take a little hike to a lovey state forest. The land is pretty much vacant of people with exception of the first weeks of fishing season and during hunting season. The pond has a few canoe paddlers from time to time. Looking in the center of the photo, straight across to the other side is a small stream that flows into the pond. It's said it holds wild brookies. Something else said about that little stream is that some say there is an older guy who fishes it. Idle talk I say.
We took a hike back into the forest and Parker was on point. Walking with a dog it's amazing how many things they see and sometimes don't want to leave them alone. While hiking we met a gentleman coming out of a hemlock stand. He had a pack on and I asked him if he had been fishing. His reply was no. He said he had just cooked himself a couple of burgers. Seems he lost power from the tropical storm and decided to have lunch in the woods.
After our hour plus hike it was back to the canoe launch and some swim time. Parker say's that water is cold, but refused to come out.
About 1pm lunch was served. Franks and beans cooked in a cast iron pan with biscuits. And yes Parker had a hot dog, no beans though.
Man, that looks like the perfect way to spend a day. Water, dogs and hot dogs.ReplyDelete
Mike relaxing and entertaining. Tasty times too.
Probably a good thing you didn't give Parker any beans. You know, dogs and beans. Phew...... Nice lake. Looks about the same size as White Pines lake up in Arnold.ReplyDelete
Mark he gets gas from just breathing the bean fumes.
It's not really that big which makes it kind of special.
I like the fact that motors are prohibited.
Brk trout, with you watching Parker and serving hot dogs for lunch as well as the summer heat. Is that what's called the "dog days of summer". Ok, bad joke but I had to say it.ReplyDelete
Beautiful lake scenery and photos, and you always don't mind us coming along on your adventures.... Phil
Phil "the dog days of summer" most appropriate.
I love having you all with me.
Life with a dog is just better-ReplyDelete
Dean this is a special guy, 14 and he has that puppy wonderment. He can go, just not as long.
Sweet looking dog Alan.ReplyDelete
Bill we love spoiling him.
beautiful hiking day Parker looks very restless and curious ... good dog.ReplyDelete
Armando has his times of high energy. At his age though it doesn't last long. He loves the outdoors.
A great way to spend some time with your best friend. Thanks for sharing
Bill best friend indeed. Parker is the type of dog that would be a fine companion when I fish.
Alan, your first Jack Russell was a fishing dog, loved water, being with you the excitement of going in the car then sleeping all the way back. She made a huge impression on me and it's heartbreaking on that last visit to the vet but lots of great memories to treasure along with the fishing. Stay safe, all the best, JohnReplyDelete
