Objects in the rear view mirror

 It's been a while since I took any of these

More Peebles

 I'm always amazed at this area which has almost no water in the summer

 I think he's maybe fishing

 Maybe cleaning himself up after dinner

 This is where the fish all hang out
 I did spot the eagle & quickly switched lenses but I was too late!
 The birds were going crazy
 Did he see the eagle?

 Lots of wildlife.....but no eagle

 If I lived there I would be on that deck from morning til night!

Yeah Miss Molly

We had Molly entered in our dog show this weekend on both Saturday & Sunday.  Sat we had put her in the afternoon session because I work in the morning but of course it was 90 degs out.  She does not do well in the heat. We were both competing at the same time as I was doing Rally & Popster doing the obedience.  I was able to move up so I could go first .  I have done nothing with Molly since I went back to work in April but Popster has been taking classes & working with her everyday.  Rally is easier in the fact that you can talk to your but you have to memorize the course because it's 10 points off if you do a station wrong.  You need to score 70 out of 100 to qualify.  I managed to get her a little "reved" up & we did okay until the last one which was a figure eight & you have to cross the center 3 times & I lost track & did one extra.......duh!  It was okay tho I got an 85 so managed to qualify.  It was finally Popster's turn & Molly was so lethargic by then, she wouldn't do any sits during the on leash heeling, & during the off leash heeling she stopped during the about turn & just stared into space.  DQ!  Poster was devastated but that's just the way Molly can be!

Today was a whole new day & being on first thing when it was cool made a big difference.  We left her in the car & I didn't get her until it was time to go in the ring.  She got in a panic cus she wanted to find Popster & he was staying out of her sight.   We flew around the course & I was amazed that I got her to do everything.  We not only qualified but got a 3rd place finish.

Now we had to get through obedience.  I don't think I breathed the whole time she was in the ring but she got the job done with the heeling on & off leash.  Everthing else she's pretty steady on. The only thing  left was the one  minute sit & 3 minute down.  Again I didn't breathe but she made it & got a1st place.  Phew!!!

I have more pics & I will post them later

Peebles Island

 We took a Sunday afternoon drive to Peebles as I wanted to maybe get some pics of the eagles.
 The sky was so beautiful that day

 This was taken near where we parked before we crossed the bridge

 On our way at the beginning of the trail thru the woods
 Look who was watching us

 I never get tired of this view
 My tree is still hanging in there

Clouds & Sun

All of these were taken with a wide angle lens......I love the way it makes the sky seem endless!

Colonie Town Park

It was an amazing day with blue skies & white fluffy clouds

We took our usual walk down to the river
Love this bridge

We sat by the river for a while & just soaked up the view

 On the way back we decided to check out some of the nature trails.  Unfortunately they are not very well marked & we got a little lost.  In fact I do believe we walked in circles for a while.  Ended up back at the river!
