A lovely day, 68F, sunny with a nice breeze.

I even managed to pry CJ away from the internet long enough to get some fresh air :)

Walking the short loop in a huge thunderstorm- rain too hard to risk getting my phone out from under my raincoat to take a pic!

Sunday, June 24, 2012


Quick run around followed by a dip in the river today as I have to get back to help set up for Nikki's party.

Sunny and 78F, and it feels like the humidity is starting to climb again.

Dodging the raindrops

Holly and I have snuck out between two waves of thunderstorms, hopefully we'll make it home before the heavens open again :)

Right now it's cooled off a good deal, 75F, but muggy and the bugs are out in force!

Starting to get muggy, 75F.  Tomorrow and Thursday are supposed to be over 100th though! We're doing the walk and swim again today and will definitely do it for the next few days!

Monday, modified walk

Weak sun &  66F.

I parked down by the bridge at the entrance today so we can do the short loop and then I can spend some time throwing the ball for Holly in the river where it's deep enough to swim properly. She was a little lame again last night after a walk and then an hour of solid playing with Robyn's kids, so I figure 20 minutes or so of swimming will give her a lower impact workout but still tire her out and give her the fun of chasing the ball :)

Saturday stroll

Jake and Crisp have gone up to Megan &  Jerry's for a BBQ (I had to stay home and work a funeral this morning) so Holly and I are taking a nice leisurely stroll before we head home and think about rustling up something for dinner :)

Sunny, bright blue skies and 75F.

Tired Thursday

A nice day, 73F and not as humid.

Tired after spending the night in the ER. I feel fine right now, but I'm waiting for the hammer to fall on part 2 of my kidney stone's little exodus.

Sultry Sunday

Warm and quite sticky, 80F.

Had to park across the street and walk over (as I did yesterday), but it's not too much of a burden- I just wish the light was faster!

Friday hi-res

Slightly different view as I had my 60mm prime lens on the camera, so the field of view is not quite the same as the camera on my phone :)


Another nice day for a relaxing stroll with my dog and my camera :)

Dappled sunshine and 77F.

Showery and 62F.

Short loop again with very limited, gentle tennis-ball- Holly's hardly limping at all :)

Listening to WCBS NewsRadio to see if there's any further news on the situation at the high school.

Monday meander

Short loop today with no tennis-ball, Holly seems much better and is limping much less, but I want to take it carefully.

Cool and overcast, 60F.

Listening to Tambrin Tobago radio again.

Saturday with CJ

A nice, late afternoon walk after a wedding at the church. 69F and quite humid, but pleasant enough :)

Chatting with CJ about his WoW characters.

Fabulous Friday

Gorgeous today!  Sunny, low humidity, 68F and a light breeze :)

Listening to the opening of the Magdalena Grand Resort in Tobago on Radio Tambrin (Tobago's radio station, which also broadcasts online). It's very interesting- apparently it was the Hilton, but has been completely refurbished and is being hailed as Tobago's first, new 4 star resort in a decade. They are broadcasting all the speeches by Tobagonian MPs, the Minister of Tourism etc who all saying how important the current push for tourism is for Tobago... Which can only be good for those of us lucky enough to be headed there in August :)
