Vacation at the cabin!

We just enjoyed a four day holiday down at the cabin with Mom and Dad. We had beautiful weather and Sid enjoyed being on the go all day. He slept for pretty much the whole drive back which took 4 hours and he is still asleep now in on his bed. While gone we saw four caribou, lots of rabbits and squirrels, and one dead moose. We saw bear tracks but thankfully no bears. Below are pictures of Triton Brook which is absolutely beautiful. Everytime we go there I end up taking tons of pictures of Sid!

On Friday we made the 1.5 hour trek each way to Rodney Pond by ATV. We had to cross a river on ATV on our way to the pond. The water was up higher than usual because of our extra rainy weather this spring and I was happy to make it across in one piece. We went fishing once we reached the pond and after 4 hours in boat, my bum was pretty much dead!

Brian caught 4 fish on Thursday night and four again on Friday in Rodney Pond. We gave them all away as we are not big fans of trout. Brian also went salmon fishing but didn't catch a thing. Below is a picture of Sid and I when we were returning from our fishing trip. Sid was so good and he just sat on my lap the whole way while Brian drove. Last year he stood up alot while Brian was driving and once he even fell off the bike but thankfully he didn't hurt himself.

Sid was really good out in boat. He just lid there and had a nap and when he woke up he stood at the front of the boat looking out. He did become nervous though once the water became rough and began pacing back and forth the boat so then we headed for land. Unlike Joanne, I do not have life jackets for my dog. I'll have to check into that in case Sid ever decides to jump overoboard!

It turned out to be a great weekend and we hope to get back down to the cabin sometime over the next few months. It's a four hour drive each way so you really need a long weekend to go there. Hopefully our good weather continues and I'll get the deck painted over the next week.

I LOVE Sid's face in that last picture. Pure joy.

I don't have a vest for Gus either, but he did pretty good on our boat ride this weekend. Good times :)

Sounds like you guys had a really fun-filled vacation! I love all the pictures. My dogs didn't really like the life jackets, but I felt better knowing they had them on just in case someone tipped their boat over. Knowing my dogs, they would get tired swimming in the water while Dennis was trying to get back in his kayak ;)
