|Here's the new dog park. |
It was sandy but at least there was shade!
|Here's the historic Blackwell House.|
An older couple came and put their dog in the dog park and went over to the tennis courts and played tennis. I thought that was ILLEGAL!
After that we had a SURPRISE! We drove up to this beautiful Victorian home and walked into the back yard. And guess who came out of the house? It was UNCLE TOM, my favorite guy! I was so excited to see him. Some of our family was staying there. I heard there were 16 people in that huge house! I think they were having fun.
We visited for a little while and then went back to the cool motel for some breakfast. This was a great day so far!
|Here's the house they were building. I think I'd like to live there!|
I saw a house I might like to have. It had a lake view and was being built up in the woods on top of a bluff. I could picture myself looking out at the lake from one of the windows. Dream on...
|The walk was cool and shady when we started out.|
So then we came to a real beach by a yacht club (or at least I thought it was). But OH NO! There were signs all over saying PRIVATE BEACH - ABSOLUTELY NO DOGS ALLOWED!
Fortunately we saw a sheriff's deputy going down to the marina. We asked her if I might go to the lake for a drink of water. She petted me and said it would be ok if we were quick. (we were). I felt much better after the drink. Then we talked to her. She said to watch where we went because over at Fernan Lake there is BLUE-GREEN ALGAE. A dog went in and died immediately. It is something for dogs to be aware of. Maybe that's why I really didn't want to go swimming in the lake. We told the sheriff's deputy thank you and walked on back to the car.
I was happy to get back to the motel for a cool rest. The wedding was to take place that evening and my owner was making sure I got plenty of exercise before the wedding. (Not because I was invited, mind you... but because I was going to stay in the motel room all by myself for the evening).
Love, Cinnamon the tired Coonie
