The road less travelled

Today we headed over to my Hanna Abbey Cowspotdog Park but instead of visiting the beach or big lake we decided to take the road less travelled (by us at least) and see where it took us. We walked on and on for hours minutes along the barren sandy road, forged bridges across raging rivers dried up creeks and pushed our way through overgrown forest cleared paths until we finally came across a little lake - ahhhhhhh - just us, the swarms of mosquitos and lots of chirpy birds. We did also see a big old turtle sunning itself on the end of the water and can you believe it hissed at me when I went over to say hello. I had to warn it with some very stern woofs that this was MY park and hissing isn't allowed!

    What a little jewel of a place at the end of the road - I suspect it will become a well-travelled road now!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xx
