A Day on the Farm

Sunday we slept in, well I say we slept in, I had been up really early with my daughter and her new puppy, a little Bassett Hound pup.

But I am proud of my daughter, she is taking it in stride and showing great responsibility with him!


But after we had finished tending to him, I went back to bed and slept late. It was nice not to have any place to be today!

I had to get out of this house and out in a bit before I totally go mad!
Boykin Springs is our “go to” park for hiking when we don’t have all day to drive then hike.

The trail used to go all the way to Bouton Lake but private land now blocks the way. I suppose that doesn’t matter today we wont be going that far.
