Tuesday means it's time for Tell All Tuesday, the awesome linky that is being hosted by TeachTalkInspire and My Day in K!
This week's topic is Summer Snapshot. That means we get to talk all about our favorite summer spots or things to do to help us relax and recharge. Do to my accident I'm still not able to walk so I haven't been able to go anywhere this summer, but last summer one of my favorite places to be wasn't that far of a drive from my house.
This is my co-pilot who accompanied me every time I needed to get away and spend some time at my summer spot. To be honest, it would seem kind of silly if I went without her!!
Not too far from my house is a place called Lums Pond. This is a very large nature preserve that is open to the public. You can kayak, canoe, paddleboat, hike, mountain bike, ride your horses, or bring your do to the Bark Park.
I LOVE the dog park because it is attached to part of the pond! BTW, it's only called a pond because it is slightly smaller than a lake, but this 'pond' is HUGE! For the dog park, there is no swimming/fishing/canoeing. You can only get into the water if you're a dog! My dog LOVES to get in the water and swim, swim, swim! I can't keep her out of it, even on chilly fall days! She would spend hours happily running and diving into the water, swimming to fetch different water toys. I have never seen a non-water breed dog love to swim as much as she does! My little pit bull could definitely pass as a water spaniel! I love to spend time throwing her different toys to fetch, or just sitting at one of the picnic tables watching her swim. When I can convince her out of the water we go for a hike through the woods to help dry off. I think she enjoys this spot and the time spent there more than I do!
I'm bummed I won't be able to take her to the dog park pond this summer, but hopefully come the fall we'll be able to go back for a visit! Make sure to head back over and read about everyone else's summer spots! You can link up too!!
P.S. - Don't forget that you can still link up for Spotlight Saturday to shine your light on a favorite product or idea!! I would LOVE to read all about yours!!
