Our rental here in Maine is located at the end of a dirt road that's perhaps a mile long. This gives the dogs the chance to wander around outside with no fear of cars. When it isn't raining, it's been great to wander out with them between house and water, to give them time to root around. Being small, a little space goes a long way for them.
We're supposed to have a short, light rain in the late morning followed by clearing and partly sunny for the afternoon. We're all looking forward to a chance to get out and relax on the dock and get in a bit of a swim. (Well, Skip won't be swimming today; since it's a weekend, the public landing will be too busy.)
One of our friends is preparing a fresh guacamole now, for a taco dinner this evening. It has filled the main living area with the most wonderful smell of fresh onions, garlic and the like. Yum!
