Today Thane and I found the Secret Pond.
This is particularly exciting because my siblings and I have been "hiking" in this itty-bitty patch of forest for at LEAST fifteen years, and we never knew about this pond until an acquaintance mentioned it a couple weeks ago. Dad found the rough location by using Google Earth, and then today I found the trail. I've actually passed the trail many times, but I never went down it because I assumed it led to someone's house.
It's rather serene, actually.
Well, unless you have a 9-month-old Collie who gets the zoomies every time he steps into the water.
Noble-looking, right? Wait for it...
Yep. There he goes...
At one point, he became so excited that he ran a lap around the entire pond at top speed. Little nut.
I suppose some people might argue that I'm a bit nutty myself for taking a dozen photos of my dog sprinting around a pond. :P Oh well.
In other news, I've spend a good chunk of time the past couple days working on The Rug. It's sloooooowly getting bigger. Here's what it looked like when I started yesterday morning:
And then this afternoon:
And finally, to conclude this rather random post, here's a video of Thane successfully catching a Frisbee in midair - yay!! :D
