January 29, 2023 – Phoenix Bike Trail – Massachusetts

Yesterday, Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to the Phoenix Bike Trail in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. The Phoenix Bike Trail is a four-mile trail that runs from Fairhaven to Mattapoisett. The Bike Trail follows the Old Fairhaven Branch Railroad.

We had a dull Adventure to the Phoenix Bike Trail. I debated sharing this blog as we only explored a very small portion of this Bike Trail but decided to post. We parked along the shore and started at the formal beginning of this Trail. The majority of the Trail we traversed ran through the neighborhoods, and past several parks. There were many others out walking, and we found those we passed quite friendly. We enjoyed walking, waiting for some exciting scenery, which never arrived on our short walk. However, Wilma made sure to enjoy some enthusiastic rolls, while Gus was quite energetic throughout. Glad we could visit another New England Rail Trail. We might just have to explore another part of the Trail on a future visit (This blog will not be rated).

January 22, 2023 – High Rock Park, Tower and Observatory – Massachusetts

Today Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to the High Rock Park, Tower and Observatory in Lynn, Massachusetts. I had been curious about this Tower for some time, so today was the day. The Tower is approximately 85 feet tall and provides views of Boston, Nahant, Swampscott, and the Atlantic Ocean. It is found in a seven-acre city park. On occasion the Tower is open to the public, and visitors can view the Tower’s telescope.

We had a quick Adventure to High Rock Park, Tower and Observatory. I decided to take a familiar walk nearby before heading to the Tower. Today was another dark and dreary New England day, no sun to be seen. Upon driving up the hill to the Tower, I was impressed, quite lovely. We walked around this small Park checking out various views of the Tower and out over the nearby cities. The Park was quiet, with just several visitors nearby. There were a couple large rocks, but really not much to see besides the outdoor view of the Tower. I actually had checked with the town about the Tower being open, and they reported it would resume when the weather was a little warmer…although I neglected to ask about dog visitors – oops. So glad we could check out this unique Tower today (This blog will not be rated).

The weekly Video/Photo section highlights an Adventure, while I might also sneak in some that are humorous, adorable, or just other fun dog moments. If you have followed my blog from the beginning you know that I adopted Shadow as a puppy, and about a year later adopted Buster as a puppy.  We had many wonderful years together before experiencing the devastating loss of Buster at just seven.  It took a long time for our hearts to heal, but almost a year after his passing we welcomed little Wilma into our world.  We were devastated to loose Shadow on April 3, 2020.These two precious boys will be furever in our hearts! We were recently thrilled to add another amazing rescue, Gus, to our home on June 28, 2021! This Weekly Video/Photo section will allow me to share photos from all four of my rescues, whether it be a precious memory, or a current moment.

Today’s photograph is one of sweet Shadow on a trip in the White Mountains. Shadow was such a gentle soul, and this is the perfect photograph showing him looking at me with his kind eyes. I am so glad he lived a long, active, and loved life but we sure do miss him! Here he is:

January 15, 2023 – Sonic Wag Cup – Massachusetts

Today Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to Sonic in Peabody, Massachusetts. Sonic is a drive-in and drive-thru American fast-food chain. The restaurant is located throughout the country, with four chains in Massachusetts.

Wilma and Gus had a delicious Adventure to Sonic where they enjoyed a scrumptious Wag Cup! We have been busy with local walks, so decided to check-out this treat at Sonic for our new Adventure of the weekend. Although I was not impressed by my food, Wilma and Gus were quite pleased with this whip-cream filled treat! The Wag Cup did not last long, but I can promise they enjoyed each and every lick (haha)! Glad they could devour a Wag Cup today! (This blog will not be rated)

Today’s photograph is one of sweet Gus from our recent visit to the Cape. He absolutely loves digging in the sand, and I caught of a bit of the sand on his nose after a joyful dig. He is such a good listener which provided quite the perfect pose. We sure do love this little guy! Here he is, Gus:

January 8, 2023 – Minuteman Bikeway – Bedford, Massachusetts

Today Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to the Minuteman Bikeway in Bedford, Massachusetts. The Minuteman Bikeway is a 10.1 mile Rail Trail that runs from Cambridge to Bedford. The Rail Trail passes through various landmarks including historic Lexington, famous for the American Revolution.

We had a simple walk to the Minuteman Bikeway, our first time exploring the Bedford portion. We parked at Depot Park and off we went, walking for approximately one hour. Wilma and Gus loved the new smells, and posing for treats, while Gus was fascinated with the ice patches along the route. The trail was enjoyed by runners, dog walkers, families, and walkers. The trail was simple, and somewhat dull, however that never dampens us enjoying a walk on a sunny winter day. So glad we could take a walk on the Minuteman Bikeway today (This blog will not be rated).

Today’s photograph is one of Wilma and Gus at Nobska Light this past weekend in Falmouth, Massachusetts. I believe this was Gus’ first adventure to Nobska Light. Nobska Light is currently under construction causing limited views of the Lighthouse, but the remodeling is definitely looking nice. I might just have to go back and blog once everything is completed. Even with all the construction I did find a good location for Wilma and Gus to pose. Here they are:

December 29, 2022 – Scusset Beach State Reservation – Massachusetts

Today Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to Scusset Beach State Reservation in Sandwich, Massachusetts, part of Cape Cod. Scusset Beach has 1.5 miles of beachfront. The Reservation allows for camping, trails, and includes part of the Canal Path. As expected, the Reservation it is popular for swimming, fishing, and camping.

We had a wonderful Adventure to Scusset Beach State Reservation. I decided to start our journey on the Canal Path in the Park and headed toward the Beach. It was windy, but warm for a winter day, the sun shining brightly. We trotted down the Path enjoying some exercise. We have been to most if not all of the Canal Path and I would say this was one of the less scenic parts, however great for a walk. We did not see any dogs on our way to the Beach, and it was quiet overall.

Upon arrival at the Beach area, we first sighted the jetty, which paralleled a sand trail to the ocean. I debated how far to go as unfortunately the off-leash beach scene can be quite out of control, but we decided to go for it and check it out. We followed a sand trail until we arrived at the beginning of the sandy beach. The scene was just lovely, the water bright blue. There were few visitors on the beach, so we decided to go for it and off we went exploring. Both Wilma and Gus were energized by the beach digging and playing, which is a little difficult when attached to a leash, and a Mom (haha). We enjoyed some time on the beach before heading back down the Canal Trail. Overall, we spent about two hours walking and exploring. So glad we could check out Scusset Beach State Reservation today (Rating: 4).

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from Wilma, Gus, and I!! We had a wonderful Christmas day and hope you and yours did as well! We had a nice walk in the morning before getting ready for company. I had given Wilma and Gus all of their Christmas toys early – oops, but they are lucky to be spoiled by their Grandma and Grandpa who brought them toys and treats. They enjoyed naps, extra love, playing with their toys, and tricks for treats (haha)! The photos below you will see a collage of some from today, and leading up to the holidays. We are looking forward to a week of vacation!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
