Another beautiful hike

Today we did a return hike from Torbay to Flatrock. It took us almost four hours but it was well worth it. It was a beautiful day and Sid had a great time.

The trail was very close to the cliffs which made it all the more beautiful but at times scary. Especially with dogs as you never know where they'll go or what they'll do. The picture below was taken from right on the trail. If you took one step to the side, you would have fallen down between these two cliffs! One of the dogs nearly fell in! It is a long ways down.

Sid poses for yet another picture. He must be one of the most photographed dogs in the world! He's just too darn cute and I can't stop taking pictures of him. One of Sid's pictures was even posted in the S.P.C.A. calender a few years back. He was Mr. November.

The picture below was taken as we were returning to Torbay and by then we were all tired. It was very warm but thankfully there was a breeze off the ocean. Sid was lagging behind at the end. He usually doesn't slow down much but I think he was tired and warm.

As soon as we got home, he headed to the basement and spent a few hours on the couch. He was, and still is, completely exhausted which I just love! Just look at Sid's eyes in this picture. He looks just like a zombie!

Mom and Dad are coming in tonight to stay for the night. I'm sure we'll be playing cards and we also plan to go down to the beach to watch the sun set and then have a fire in the firepit. Sounds like a good night.
