After breakfast I was snuggled in my comfy chair vacillating between reading and falling asleep.
At 11 a.m. the thought came into my head that I needed to get off my arse and go somewhere.
I got dressed, did some laundry, hung it on the line and headed out with Wendy and Sooki.
By 12:30 we were at the Port Williams dyke.
|Today the tide was at its lowest.|
It's one of my favourite places in Nova Scotia. A long walk along the top of a dyke it looks different each time I go; not just seasonal changes but tidal changes.
|This is not high tide. The tide is about half way up.|
The weather was sunny and mild; amazing weather for October 28.
The trail curves to the right in the distance and ends up in the town of Wolfville several kilometres away. If you look very carefully you might even be able to see the white spire of Acadia University right of centre.
I've never actually gone all the way there, though I have explored the trail from the Wolfville end.
The dogs love trotting along the top of the dyke. After a while they get hot and start looking wistfully at the water in the river below.
So near and yet so far.
Sooki disappeared into a muck hole and when she scrambled out this is how she looked.
Wendy's turn was next.
Nothing like a good roll with your favourite ball.
By 3 pm we'd had a good walk and it was time to head home but in a different frame of mind.
A better frame of mind for sure.
P.S. Had to give Wendy a bath when we got home. You should see the tub. lol
