I was busy comparing flights for our annual trip back to Canada this summer, and didn’t really want to go out for a walk. The good thing – and the bad thing – about having a dog is that you have no choice………. the walk is a must. And on this beautiful, sunny morning, I’m so glad I had to break away from my computer and head on outside.
There is a part in the park that seems to be designed to teach children about the rules of the road, including signs and road markings. There are all sorts of road signs, crosswalks, bus stops, and even a round=about and a train crossing. We quite often wander around the loops as Snoopy can run around in circles there off leash, and there is usually no one there. this morning there was a man with his grandson. Grandpa was wheeling a small bicycle, and the boy was running, and almost looked like he was pretending to be a horse, shaking his head and prancing. Snoopy made friends with the man, who petted him and talked to us.
We wandered over by the lake. There is a train runs on a 2 km track around the reservoir on the weekends. It was waiting for it’s first compliment of passengers when we passed by. Tickets are only one ruble (about 3.5 cents). There was a wedding party close by – here is the bride with some of her party…….. and the men had just passed me carrying a bottle of champagne.
And then home.
