Silver creek park
“Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished…” Dean Koontz
After the usual morning activities – getting up at 5:45 for a change, caused by a painful fallen asleep right arm – we will head to Silver creek park for a quick walk. As boring as it sounds, I have to be at “work” today….
I usually like this quaint little local park but today it held a bit of a surprise when I couldn’t park at the regular spot. Huge machinery occupied the circle at the end of Silver Creek rd., workers busy laying piping in the side of the park. We didn’t get discouraged – I girl with a Mag gotta walk – and parked a block away.
Even though we had to circle around to make up for the distance cut – about quarter of a mile each way from original parking spot – Mag still accomplished all his sniffing needs.
Hardly, but still managed to walk 1 (!) mile at the end, taking pretty pics and listening to Red-winged blackbirds and Wrens (their song sounds like a beautiful melody) while doing so.
These gorgeous sounds only get interrupted by the light rail rushing by and neighbors using their lawnmowers (which is “white noise” to me) to keep the surroundings well maintained.
One can even spot deer hiding within the cattails over the little marsh at certain times.
There is also a massive (in my opinion) playground if you have little people as well.
Other fun activities include a chess table with benches and a metal swing bench, which Mag enjoyed immensely.
You might wonder why it took us about an hour to accomplish 1 mile but Mag had the “urgency “ to smell literally ever piece of grass and water all the trees….
Here is our loopity loop
Looks kind of big but trust me on this! I could walk this in about 15 minutes by myself 😀.
So long until next time!
