One of those "goals" for the new year is to get outside and walk. Taking Gypsy walking is the perfect answer. Since she has grown up a bit, she is well behaved on a leash and loves to take a walk.
We've taken to walking at our local county park, A.J. Jolly, one thousand acres of peacefulness. I'm lucky that its a five minute drive from our house. I'd walk to it but you have to cross the busy highway.
Since its the dead of winter here, although warm, the park was absolutely empty. Just me and G and this gaggle of geese. They were content to walk with us on the opposite side of the water - now I know where the term ducks in a row comes from. The lake covers 200 acres and we've only managed to walk a tiny area of it.
As the lake narrowed at one end the geese lost trust in the water between us and decided it was safer in the water than out.
Gypsy didn't understand how they could ditch us like that. She's waiting for one to come back and play with her.
