Luckily it wasn't too hot that afternoon, it was in the 80s, and we did fine without electricity. My computer works with the inverter, and I didn't need anything else. Isn't it nice to live in a self contained house?
It went off around 4:30 and came back at 7:30, just in time for the good TV shows.
Katie and I took another loooong walk yesterday. We took off in a couple of different directions, retraced our steps, and then I decided to walk up the road to the parking lot, which I finally found, and from there walk across the levee to the beach area at the other end.
Well... when we were about half way along the levee, the beach in the distance kept seeming farther and farther away. I was thinking, if we make it to the beach, then we are going to have to walk alllllllll the way back. Not good. Katie was lagging, I think the rocky path was slowing her down. I never know if what we're walking on is bothering the little pads on her feet, but she was starting to pant a little and I was getting tired, so we turned around and headed back to the beginning of the levee.
I carried Katie part of the way and part of the way back. She seemed happy about that. Not only was she not walking, she had a better view up in my arms than on the ground.
When we got back to the parking lot, we went to the restroom and I made a cup of my hands and got her some water, and she drank it all, so she was thirsty. Then we walked back to the rig; we were both very happy to be home again.
These long walks are new to us, and obviously we need the exercise, but walking an hour and a half in 80+ degree temps is pretty good for a 66 years old woman and a tiny dog, I think. Three and a half years ago, before I lost 25 pounds, I could not have begun to walk like this. A lot of our walks here are at a slight incline, and back then I would have been so out of breath, and my legs would have really felt the burn. Today I was breathing and climbing just fine. I was pretty happy about that, even though I was glad we turned around before we got to the beach.
Here are all the treasures Katie found on our walk:
From Me and My Dog, have a great Sunday, everyone! :)
