Took Trey and Sooki for several of circuits of McCormack's Boardwalk late this afternoon.
It was chilly but sunny. A stiff breeze made it feel even colder. I wore a sweat top and a jacket with the neck tightly zipped and the hood up.

The long grass was shiny and golden as it bent in the setting sun.

On the last circuit, I noticed the scent of the air. I wondered why I hadn't noticed it before. I breathed deep, held it, breathed out. The aroma was one of salt and fish. I love that scent.
I drilled Sooki and Trey on their heeling, treats kept handy to distract them as they sit nicely, when other dogs or people walk by. I walked briskly, in order to get some decent exercise myself.
I always come home feeling invigorated and glad I made myself go out.
