adventures and ponderings of a 2 dog family with a very cute little late comer
Saturday, May 7, 2011
Today was a very happy day. We awoke to frost and low lying mist but then this quickly dissolved and the sun and blue sky beckoned to us to forget about our chores for the morning and venture out for a bush walk. There is an old rail track in Mittagong, The Boxvale track, where there used to be a deep coal mine around the 1880's. The rail track is no longer there. You can see the raised mound where the old tracks were laid. It is owned by the Department of Lands, so yes dogs are allowed. The pooches come alive in the bush, like they are puppies again. It takes some time now as our little man loves to do most of the walking on his own. Picking up numerous stones, sticks, pods and mushrooms. He then tires and Dada's shoulders become a welcomed rest spot.
