These warm sunny days should not be wasted. We said the “w” word sending Sidney into a flurry of excitement. After lots of dashing up and down the hallway, we grabbed her leash and set off for a walk in Sibbald’s Point Provincial Park. Sidney knows the way. She sits quietly in the back of the van, watching every turn, until we get to Black River Road. We can hear her soft whimper escalate into pure yowls of anticipation. She knows we are almost at her favorite place. She loves to run and this park has plenty of grassy fields. She bounds from the car and dashes off as if being chased by a bear. After a few minutes of running in circles, she invites us to play with her. Not content with just a ball, or even a small stick, Sidney found a very large branch.
She runs around with it hanging from her mouth and we have to play “dodge the branch” with her, if we take our eyes off her for a moment, she runs beside us and whacks us with her stick.
The park is on Lake Simcoe. The wind whipped up the lake and it was very rough.
Sidney also loves to swim. She does not appreciate the waves however. In fact, I think she was a bit afraid at first but playing took her mind off the waves and the freezing cold water.
The sun warmed us again once we were off the beach. I could not resist taking a few pictures before we headed home.
