When the mist rolls in

We had the most pawsome walk yesterday morning. We were up at 5.30 am which is a perfect time for a walk (not so good for taking photos as sunrise isn't until 6.37 am) and got to see the twin fawns again, the beavers and the biggest EVER ginger cat which we are pretty sure is half tiger - dawg that thing was HUGE - but not that big that we didn't risk life and limb and chase him straight up a tree bbaaawwaahhh!

Here are the twinsies - Babette and Bambi as Mom has named them (that woman names every thing!) - they have grown a bit since we last saw them  - they are in the middle of the photo and you might have to click on it to see it bigger. And here we are being photo bombed by the beaver - you can just see his ripple over my back.

Next we wanted to show you Mr Tuxedo Duck and his babies. Mr Tuxedo has been a regular at MY park for 3 years but this is the first year we have seen him breed. What is unusual is the beautiful grey - yes soft mottled grey babies he had. They have his beautiful black heads and white necks like their dad. Mrs Tuxedo is also very pretty - she is new this year and is a soft mottled brown.

Of coarse Mom made us wait up by the picnic bench while she fed the ducks MY bread. I was NOT happy about that and woofed so loudly it kept echoing around the lake which only made me woof more because I thought another dog was talking to me !!!

After our walk we sat down at our favorite bench and were totally amazed - because all of a sudden we noticed the fog appear over the trees on the other side of the lake, it billowed and flowed over and through the trees and then across the lake in all of about 10 minutes. We got up and started walking while Mom tried to capture it but is was so overcast the pics came out a little dark. Mom said she felt like she walking though some mystical mist and that she would come out the other side in some magical kingdom - errmmmmm Mom - what is is that tea you are drinking???? Shhheeesh - the things we have to put up!


  1. What a beautiful, perfect morning! Love the magical mist.

    How exciting to see the baby deer again.

  2. What a super walk. We get plenty of mist rolling in from the sea in Aberdeen and so know how hard it is to photograph well. Gail thinks your Mom did a really good job capturing the atmosphere with those pictures.
    Toodle pip!

  3. That is a lovely eventful walk. We know to see the good stuff you have to get out first thing in the morning.

    Our Lady names everything too. She hasn't named all the deer, but most everything else has a name.

    Have a lovely Labour Day!

  4. LOL mystical indeed. Alas Summer is over. Have a marvellous Monday and Happy Labour Day to you.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. That fog does look a bit eerie.

    We're able to walk at 6 a.m. now. Seems like it was just yesterday we had to wait until nearly 7.

    Seems like the morning walks that tell us the seasons.

  6. Ducks... I loves playing with ducks!

  7. How beautiful guys :) and I agre with mum mist is very mystical and surreal...the little woodland creatures are so sweet and yes I name everything too hahaah:) it's a mum thing! have a great day guys hugs and loves Fozziemumxxx

  8. Gosh you two are almost out before the sun comes up. Why that is when I get my best snooze. Sometimes because we live near the river the fog gets really heavy on our walk path.
    That is why we wait till later when the fog burns off to go for our walkies. Wonder pictures.
