It's true; dogs are good for people's fitness. If we weren't dog owners I don't think we'd be out so often exploring new parks. A few weeks ago it was Deer Lake, this weekend it was Burnaby Lake.
I hadn't been there in several years despite working practically next door to it for 7 years. The last time I was there was over 5 years ago when our SunRun training group did a 10K jog around the lake. Today we took Tannah on an approximately 4K walk along the east side of the lake. She had a blast! Even though she wasn't allowed in one area that juts out into the lake itself.
|Tannah was not impressed she wasn't allowed to follow Shauna down the jetty to the lake. But I bet the ducks were breathing a sigh of relief!|
|Tannah was much more intrigued by squirrels and birds than mushrooms.|
|The metropolis of Burnaby appears to be sprouting from the tops of the lake shore trees.|
|Wood ducks must spend hours in front of the mirror every morning.|
|At first I thought this was a dove, but I think it's actually a white pigeon. White certainly seems to be the colour of authority in this tree.|
