Time off = Traveling Bed Toys =VACATION
Hi all, I know I've been away for a bit. One week, it was just so beautiful, we were outside more than inside. Indian summer showed up. For those who may not know what Indian Summer is, it's when the cold temperatures rise for a week or so and it feels like summer all over again. One day you will be wearing Uggs and the next day, flip flops. The second week, Indian summer decided to stay around for our vacation so we were gone.
It was a wonderful vacation too. We started by heading up northeast from us into Maine and stayed by Bar Harbor. Flat Fox is one of August's bed toys. Do you have bed toys for your small dogs? We do. We have about 5 small toys tucked under the pillow on our bed. When (not if) August wakes up and we do not want get up, he is allowed to get a toy and play quietly on the bed with it. Luckily, he falls back to sleep within a few minutes of sucking or chewing on his bed toys. So the bed toys came on vacation with us as well. Flat Fox is one of the first toys he got as a new to us puppy by his Auntie Anu and he L-O-V-E-S Flat Fox so as we drove north, Flat Fox would look out the window at the changing colors and scenery.
As we drove north the colors were more and more vibrant. At one point they were at peak, which is one of the reasons so many people travel to the northeast for Leaf Peeping. How many times do you look out the window and don't see what others travel hundreds of miles to see what you are looking at out your window. It seems strange, that we get so use to the changing seasons, the colors, the crispness in the air, we just don't stop to look at it all. This week we stopped to look at it.
Our first stop was the Acadia Sunrise Motel in Trenton, Maine, Just outside of Bar Harbor. A quaint little "Mom and Pop" type of motel. The room was clean, the bed comfy, there was lots of room for the dogs and it was adjacent to a small airport which was so much fun to sit and watch the planes and relax, and see what so many look at but never see.
The dogs would walk around and visit or play on the swing set that was there. August really liked going inside and looking out the windows or climbing up and looking out the top of this thing.
And he met the "Easter Bunny"! I mean really, this thing, a Flemish Giant, was HUGE and was only a teenager. The owner told us he weighed about 14 pounds but would grow to about 20 pounds so this thing is just a baby still. Holy Cow, August wasn't too sure about this thing.
I'll tell you more tomorrow. In the meantime, go look outside and enjoy your day.
