AC Will Miss His Daily Swims
We are having a cooler spell these past few days.
I’m sure that we’ll get an Indian Summer soon, but for right now, it’s jeans, long-sleeved t-shirt, and sweater time. And more trees are turning.
AC has been swimming every day after he runs after his ball and gets hot. Over by the Snow Bowl, there are FIVE places where he likes to swim—two in the pond, one in a runoff pool, and two in a stream with some deep pools.
But now the cooler nights are making the water cold.
So he is being more cautious. These may be the last dips until next year as an Indian Summer warmer spell won’t heat the water enough.
Here is the pond over by the Toboggan Run—which is, actually, a lovely spot.
Then we backtrack towards where the car is parked, past the run-off pool and the two places in the stream, where he also swims, to the boat launch/swimming area.
Sometimes there are other dogs swimming and/or playing, and AC loves to join in.
