Travels with Tessa - Part 2

Dull and showery, but Tessa and I don't care, we go exploring through the woods regardless of the changeable weather. Plus I have the advantage of an umbrella!

Back in the far reaches of the forest path, we came across a fortune from a fortune cookie. Huh? Strange place to find a fortune. "Ability is not something to be shown off." Probably good advice.

The trilliums are still blooming, but I have to admit, they look a lot better on a sunny day.

This young tree is growing right in the middle of the remains of an old tree trunk. Mother Nature is practising her recycling.

She walked in the mud, wallowed in the mud, rolled in the mud, and I think she even ate mud......

....but she had a great time. She loves weekends with her Nana!

Tessa looks a great dog... and these last two posts look perfect for man and beast to walk..

And I'll bet she's happier than a pig in ... mud. ;)
I love when there are treasures to be found like that fortune and the tree trunk growth. Thanks for the fun walk.

Beautiful image and such a sweet looking dog! May I pat him?

A rainy day walk every once in a while is great! I ventured out into a field right after a thunderstorm yesterday, I loved it.

Sorry my mistake! It should be of course Callum.

Tessa would also have needed an umbrella! I guess she got a good shower when back home.

Never saw a tree growing in a tree trunk before! Must be exceptional!

That is one lucky Tessa, Ex-S. I know you feel the same way. :)

That looks so nice and relaxing. It has been a long time since I was on a good walk. Ok a few weeks ago I did take my youngest down the road from my grandmas to visit the Llams.

Looked like Tessa had the time of her life.

Hope you bathed Tessa before letting her roll around on your sofa. :-)

There is nothing quite like the fragrance of wet dog..Did you have to bath her..?
That looks like a great place for a walk.
