Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Daisy’s Summer Park Romp

on July 14, 2011

This weekend we took Daisy for a mile-long walk around the lake in a local municipal center. Naturally, she was VERY happy to be going for a ride….

I don't know where we're going, but I can't wait to get there!

….and VERY excited at the sight of a new place to explore….

It’s such a beautiful place – the Town Hall and Police Department are housed in a classically-styled, unimposing brick building, and they’ve kept the area natural (other than keeping the grass mowed) and let nature do its beautiful thing.

Well we picked one of a string of brutally hot days for this walk (heat index of 102+) – the trail is mostly in the sun. Even though we got out there by 9:30, it was already getting nasty.

So we decided to quit after the single one-mile loop around the lake, especially since Daisy was panting up a storm.

The bullfrogs croaked their love calls, turtles jumped and splashed into the lake, dragonflies flitted about, birds of all sorts created a cacophonous melody, and ducks and geese Β floated serenely across water muddied by recent storms.

It was sheer heaven, despite the heat. Daisy loved every second of it as much as we did!

What's over there? Let's check it out!

    Those kind of outings are just the most fun ever! Love the pictures and we are happy you had fun and enjoyed such a nice place. Hugs and nose kisses

      I agree! Sometimes those little impromptu outings are more fun than day trips – no planning, no packing, just fun! πŸ™‚ Though we certainly do enjoy our share of day trips as well…. πŸ˜‰

    Looks like a lovely place for a walk for humans and dogs alike and it seems Daisy enjoyed it in spite of the heat!
    I love the pic of her looking out the car window in anticipation!

      Thanks Barb! Yes, this is one of our new favorite photos too. We’re heading back again this weekend and plan to try a couple of other areas too. Can’t wait until the summer season is over so we can take her to the beach!

  6. Fun photos! Looks like a nice place for a pup to enjoy the day πŸ™‚

    • raisingdaisy says:

      It sure was! We have lots of natural areas here, but most are wooded and the tick population has gotten out of control. I already had Lyme once when I used to go hiking in the woods every weekend – I’m not willing to risk it again!

    Good gravy, Miss Daisy, looks like you had fun! πŸ™‚

  8. Hey Daisy,

    I’m with you (well not literally! Though that would be fun!) – I love going in the car as well, I don’t care where we go, it’s always fun!

    Those pics were great, you’ve got some lovely scenery near you, just a shame you couldn’t stay longer due to the heat, but I know what it’s like being a hot furry thing – yuk! πŸ™‚

    Have a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚
