Sunday Afternoon

Sunday was quite warm here. Dad and I were playing yet another ball session in the backyard, when mom appeared home early from work. I was happy! Enough time for mom to try more camera lens practice....

..And, a mini-hike on a nearby fireroad.

Don't think there is a name to this road. A short walk, lots of views and wildflowers faintly appearing.
Looking towards Big Rock Ridge.
It was breezy! I loved it!
Posing on a very narrow trail.
We had to remind dad of what poison oak looks like this time of year...waxy, green, bushy..He is quite allergic and there was a lot lining the trail.A pair of Western Bluebirds delighted us in their flights around the trail.

Tending to land near each other.
Sniffing the Monkey Flowers.
Ahhh... Nice.
Have a great week pals!


  1. There she is my pal Sierra Rose, back on her rambles. Very good you look too I must say.... such a big smile, straight into the camera.... :-)xxx lots of luv AMIE SOTO BLOSSOM X

  2. Woof! Woof! What a wonderful Sunday you had. it was chilly, cloudy n rainy here. No Spring weather. So that's a Monkey Flowers ... Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  3. What a great nature hike! Good job with the camera - I've been angling for a new one here, but I have to do some research 1st

  4. Nice photos! It's always nice when Mom gets to come home a bit early, isn't it?


  5. Sierra - I see it was so windy it was blowing your ears back! Keep those wildflowers growing until I get there, please.

  6. OMD those are some very pawsome pictures! Your mom's camera must me soooper doooper high tech! Hoommie Melissa's jealous...It sure looked like you had a very fun hike! Bet you slept like a baby after that.

  7. How beautiful. Such a nice place for a walk!

  8. What gorgeous shots of Sierra and the birds and nature! Yikes, it's getting to be poison oak weather, isn't it--and foxtails, too.

  9. Your Mom is doing very well with the flashy box for sure - you look so beautiful in all your shots. We can even see your furs blowing in that wind. Tell Dad to be careful with that poison oak - that wouldn't be much fun.

    we hope you have a great week to.

    so jealous of your hugs for Sierra, she is so sweet! beautiful pics. She is the image of my late 6 yr old Penny. It gives me joy to see another golden enjoying all a dog is meant to enjoy, and loved so much. Thanks!

  11. What a beautiful walk!!! Gorgeous Views!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  12. Superb Sunday Walkie! Glad you caught Dad before he touched the poison oak! Nasty stuff! Wonderful to see the wild flowers out and the beautiful little birds enjoying Spring! Mom's quite good with her lenses :) Thanks for the great photos!


  13. What a nice trail for a hike! Mom had no idea what poison oak looked like. Thank you for the picture!

  14. That looks like a great Sunday. Good picture of that bluebird and the wild flower pictures.

  15. Sunday's are my favorite day of the week - I am glad you had a beautiful Sunday!

    Wags N Kisses,

  16. Wow - what gorgeous pictures of a lovely dog and a fabulous landscape!

  17. We saw bluebirds yesterday - I wonder if they were the same ones? If I see them again, I'll ask them to tell you hi for us.
    That's a gorgeous walking path. Our parents name all of our routes - they're kind of silly.

  18. Nothing better than a leisurely stroll with the mom an' dad on a Sunday afternoon☺

  19. Such a beautiful place to take a walk. Except for the poison ivy. We've never seen any but Jan says she's allergic too.

  20. What a wonderful day! We've actually had a couple of sunny days here, so MAYBE spring is on its way??


I love hearing from you!
