Weekly Video/Photo

If you regularly follow my blog, and the weekly/video photo I would recommend skipping on to paragraph three, specific to this week’s video/photo.  I have decided to add a weekly video/photo section to my blog.  This blog will display a video or photo, usually highlighting an Adventure, while I might also sneak in some that are humorous, adorable, or just other fun dog moments.

So if you have followed my blog from the beginning you will 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 later we welcomed little Wilma into our world.

Today’s feature is a video from a day-trip to Vermont with Shadow and Wilma, on which we stopped to explore the town of Wilmington, including a trail, and the Deerfield River.  This video occurred IN the Deerfield River, and instantly brings a smile to my face every time I view it!!  We were returning from our walk along the trail, and of course had to stop for a Shadow dip.  After literally walking around the River Shadow decided to lay down, with no plans whatsoever to ever leave this cool oasis.  Although he lives for getting into bodies of water I do not think I have ever seen him completely lay down in the water.  I found the moment so humorous, and of course was quite pleased that he was cool and comfortable.  Back at that time Wilma was almost scared of the water, although now she will take some steps in on occasion.  She instead preferred to eat some grass as we waited for Shadow to finish his water therapy.  I love that Shadow is a water boy, and that I captured this little moment FOREVER!

Today’s feature is a video from a wonderful Adventure that Shadow, Wilma, and I took in Lincoln Woods in the White Mountain of New Hampshire.  This is absolutely one of my favorite places to hike!  It starts with an amazing bridge over the Pemigewasett River and follows the River for much of the hike, opening up at various spots for extra-ordinary views.  The Fall, of course, is my favorite season to visit this spectacular location.  Please search for Lincoln Woods in the “search box” for more information on our many visits to Lincoln Woods.  (On a mobile phone you can find this at the very bottom of the page, and on the computer you can find it to the right of the blog.)

Hope you can make a visit of your own!  Enjoy!

So today’s feature is a sweet photo of my gentle giant, Shadow.  It was taken on a trip to the Cape with Shadow, My Mom, and I in April 2017.  We had a scenic view of the ocean and Shadow was taking it all in, resting on the screened porch.  It was on this vacation that I found out Shadow had cancer.  He has been so fortunate not to have a sign or symptom, and continues to defy all odds.  I think in the moment that news made this picture even more dear to my heart.  We had an amazing vacation, and this photograph captures a peaceful moment of yet another memorable Adventure.

So today’s feature is a scenic photograph from a summer weekend in the White Mountains.  Shadow, Wilma, and I had the amazing opportunity to work at an Inn on weekends last summer.  We explored, explored, explored!  This photograph was taken in an area near the AMC Highland Center in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire.  The flowers were gorgeous and the background scenic.  One of my favorite spots in New England is the White Mountains, and this photo captures one of our many special memories.

Other short hikes I have blogged about that started at the AMC Higland Center include:  the Ammonoosuc Lake Trail and the Red Bench Trail, Beecher and Pearl Cascades, and the Lake Saco Trail.  These are especially great hikes if you are new to hiking or hike alone.  You can search for these blogs by typing the name in on my “search box”.  On a mobile phone you can find this at the very bottom of the page, and on the computer you can find it to the right of the blog.  You might see it in the midst of some outside advertisements.  The AMC is a great resource and has NUMEROUS other hikes that you can explore.

Enjoy the flowers!

So today I will be featuring a photograph from West Rattlesnake Mountain, a mountain hike in Holderness, New Hampshire.  This was an Adventure Shadow, Wilma, and I took back in May of 2018.  It was a short, uphill hike to an absolutely stunning view of Squam Lake and the surrounding areas.  I was awed at the scenic spot, and we spent quite a bit of time at the top of the Mountain relaxing and enjoying the view.  Please search for West Rattlesnake Mountain in the “search box” for more information on this wonderful journey.  (On a mobile phone you can find this at the very bottom of the page, and on the computer you can find it to the right of the blog.)

This week’s feature is an adorable photo of Buster from his FIRST trip to the beach, in Florida.  He was about four months old, and absolutely loved playing on the beach and in the water.  We went with friends who had two dogs of their own so Buster, Shadow, and their two friends had a blast.  I unfortunately do not think I will ever figure out which beach we were at, however, it was one of the lovely dog-friendly Florida beaches.  Hope you enjoy this adorable beach bum below, Buster.  We sure do miss him!

So today I will be featuring a photograph from Bancroft Castle in Groton, Massachusetts. I find this photo perfect as it is a beautiful and unique spot, and shows Shadow and Wilma’s excitement in the moment. Why pose when you can roll around and play?! I found it adorable, and thought it was the perfect choice for today’s Weekly Video/Photo. See the “Massachusetts” section of my blog for more on our Adventure to Bancroft Castle.
