Sunny Weekend Exploring

This weekend the sun was finally out so we got to have lots of fun! Chris works on Saturdays, so Ellie and I set out on our long walk without him that day.

I had yet to really explore my new neighborhood so we decided to hit the trails and take paths that we'd never been on without any real direction. Those are always the best kinds of walks. :) We ended up walking about 5.4 miles that day!

Sunday, the weather was even nicer, and Chris said that he wanted to show me this really neat park that is nearby. The North Creek Park is a huge expansive wetlands area that is just right down the street from where we live in suburbia and I never even knew about it!

The whole area is a wide open field of water that ranges from 2-5 feet deep, and you walk through it on floating wooden docks! So cool!

Our total walk was a little over 6 miles. We were so tired when we got back that all three of us took naps! Quite the long day!

Also, I managed to capture a video of Ellie after Chris picked a piece of grass and started whistling with it:


  1. Sounds like a great way to spend the day. Great views, looks so peaceful.

    The view of the grass blowing was pretty funny. Like huh, what is that? :)

  2. What a beautiful park! Pretty neat to walk on water like that ;) What fun! Laughed my tail off at the crazy sounds Chris made with the blade of grass. I think Ellie thought there might be a critter stuck in his mouth ;) Hardy Har Har

    Waggin at ya,

  3. Hi,
    I googled Whippet mix, I found your dog. I was shocked how similar it is to our Buffy :)
    She is already 12 this year and is still as playful as from the beginning.
