sunday in the park.

sunday in the park.
entering the park from the "back gate", holly chooses which way we go; today, she chose clockwise
...it hit me hard as holly and I set off for the park this morning. this is one of our last walks there on a sunday (weather permitting, we have next week, and that will be it). it really caught me off guard. I'm going to miss many things about this home, and walking holly in hembree park, on a sunday, is for sure in the top 10.

I did a series of blog posts about our sunday walks last november and december. the colors, the seasons, the sounds or the quiet, the simple peace of walking that mile-long trail (despite holly's occasional barks at squirrels, or chipmunks, or birds). it anchors my week.

looking back (again)... a favorite spot to see the seasons change

the best part of the trail for shadows - sara and I have been here, too
so I was especially glad today's walk was one to remember. there was a slight chill in the air. the sky was bright blue. holly was full of energy (I only had to carry her a little bit). we had the place to ourselves. and enjoyed every minute of it.

  2. I'm sure it was bittersweet but I'm confident you will find new places to walk that will become just as meaningful for you and Holly.

  4. have you scouted out a new place to walk? sophie has very definite opinions about which way she wants to go when we're out for a walk. sometimes i really wish dogs could speak.
