Part 2 - The Adventure Continues

We had so much fun exploring the retreat and once the Dweeb got over being scared even he seemed to enjoy himself. Here he is thinking he is a mountain dog.

Mom says you could how happy I was - she said there was something in my eyes - they shined extra bright and I was so full of energy I could barely sit still. I did on occasions though but I was ready and every time Mom or Dad moved I was waiting to go go go. One of the places we went was called Beaver Dam. This is a hydro electric dam and Mom and Dad said it was very impressive. We were to busy sniffing to check out something as silly as the view.

Then Mom and Dad went out to dinner to a place that sat right on top the mountain. This was the view from their table. Mom said it was wonderful to be able to sit outside with a gentle breeze, the smell of the dogwoods and to just breath in the all the fresh air and see the beauty all around. Bah humbug I say - we got left behind with a bone and they didn't even bring us a doggie bag! Oh we forgot to mention we had beautiful weather the WHOLE weekend - it was 78 degrees but the best part of all - there was air conditioning vents in the floor of the cabin and it took me all of 2 seconds to remember what those are for - aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh nothing beats a cool tummy. The adventure continues again tomorrow.
