A Trip to the Park




Today I took Mom to the lake in Austin. This is Town Lake, not to be confused with MY lake which is Lake "has no water", also known as Lake Travis.




Anyway...Town Lake is in Downtown Austin and is a nice place to go and walk on trails and see wildlife..


Turtle Wildlife!


Doggy Wildlfe!



It was very hot! Mommy says that until it cools off we will have to go for walks when it is WAY early before the hot comes.


Some puppy dogs cooled off by swimming and fetching in the lake (these were GROWED UP puppies Jack, don't get any ideas!)


I am all about cooling off in the air conditioning on the way home!!!

Hope everyone had a nice Monday!!

Boy, it must have been hot. You seem to be panting in every picture. Looks like a nice place to visit though.

You should call me next time you go to the lake and we can go together! Just make sure it's like 2 days before you plan to go :)

Nice trip...Looks like you had a great time. As hot as it's been I bet that the car AC felt wonderful!

You will sleep like a log tonight.

Hi Dory,
The outing must be fun... and the park is beautiful. I like to cool down in the air-conditioning of the car after each outing too.

Hi, Dory...

What a great place for a walk...

I'm with you...I don't think I'd go swimming in that big lake either...I'd settle for the a/c in the car, too..

Hi Dory,
What a beautiful lake you have to walk about. Today's pictures are very pretty. You'd never know it was hot the picutres are very refreshing. Just think before long we'll be in the midst of autumn...long walks beautiful leaves. At least your Mom didn't embarass you today.

Wowzers, what a cool adventure! You look totally exhausted on the way home - and quite bee-roo-tiful, too, I might add!
Play bows,

Thanks for visiting my blog; I hope you will visit again soon. My dad and I go to the park very early in the morning to also avoid the heat. I especially like that there is no one else there at that hour.

Hi Dory,

That's a BIG lake. Ours isn't nearly that nice. Although we did see a turtle and a bunch of ducks the other day but mom didn't have the camera. Stoopid mom!

They don't allow swimming in our lake. Not hoomans or doggies cause the fishermen say it scares the fishies!

Wags & wiggles,
Bijou
