Finally, after 2 1/2 weeks, we are back in the woods.
Holly seems to be responding well to the meds the new very had given her, and it was so nice today I thought I'd risk the short loop. Hopefully she shows no ill effects and we can come back tomorrow- she certainly looks pretty perky right now, and has just brought me a tennis ball she's found and is looking at me expectantly (I will not be throwing it for her!).
Warm and breezy, 57F.
No book or music, it's nice just to enjoy the wind through the trees!
They've done lots of work on the trails in our absence- like the approach to the bridge here- will detail more as we reacclimatize ourselves :)
