traversing with norwood

hi every bloggie
Believe it or not, I have so many fotos I haven't posted yet. Think back.. yep think think think.. Well let's just say it was a time when lights decorated homes, a fat bearded fellow dropped into homes and I enjoyed many gifts. That's a while ago.. I headed to one of my favorite parks. Wahoo!
This is Hopkinton State Park- It's close to the Boston Marathon start line. That's the lake frozen over. It's pretty for winter standards.
The park is filled with many trails. Hmm which way do I go!
I decided to take the trail around the lake. Sorry- no ice skating for me. Ahem.. someone reminded me to the dangers of ice.
So I traversed quickly along the trail until I hit this spot.
Huh? It's so loud and scary. A scary rushing stream! I'd call for help but the Mango doesn't go outside the 495 force field and this is on the edge. And let's just say Tula is no service dog.
Oh good grief.. do I have to cross!
Listen to this scary monster! But I made it!
And made it to the kayak area.
Oh think about kayaking on ice. Now that would be a trip and more like the kinda fun I'd like to have.
I tried to move one out but no luck. Ah look at them, the colors reminded me of skittles. Hmm I'm getting hungry. Oh. I think I have some hot dogs with me sent from.... oh.. never mind.
Okay I have more shots but I'll leave u with artistic me. Toodles and see you in the ring at Mango Minster 2010.

  9. Winter looks cold, you can keep it.
    Stumpy is VERY serious when we get to the bank, or any time a treat is invloved. So serious that she'll do about anything for a treat.
    She got her ear back so you can keep yours. It was nice of you too offer. Stumpy was a little worried that borrowing your ear might cause her to grow rooney eyes.

  10. I'm loving that red bandanna Norwood!
    your pal,
