Setting Moon, Dogs, and Planes

It was a tough night; too WARM to sleep well until about time to get up. I’m sure you know how that goes.  Actually, I got up a bit earlier than usual because I was too warm and it was serendipity. The full moon was setting on the western horizon.  Big, beautiful, gorgeous view.  The photo isn’t very good and certainly doesn’t do it justice but I knew I would miss it if I took the time to get the tripod set up.


Then a quick walk around our little area at Plomosa with the dogs so they can relieve themselves while the coffee brews in the French press.  An insulated, lidded tumbler full to start the morning off right and the rest goes in the thermos for later. We’re off to the library for some internet and then to the dog park.

I switched things up a bit this morning and put the dog park second on the list.  The bowsers were none too happy about that but they settled down and let me get my computer things taken care of in relative peace.  They only growled and barked at a couple of people who dared to say hello to them through the van’s passenger side window.  Their turn came and as usual they loved seeing their park buddies.


The rest of our morning consisted of watching the radio controlled airplanes dip and swirl, climb and dive during the annual RCA Fly In at the RCA air park located next to the dog park. I couldn’t get a shot of the “jet” someone was flying, but it was fun to watch and even sounded like a jet.  This little plane in the photo did some wonderful dives and other maneuvers.


While all of the sights and sounds of the air show kept everyone looking up, the dogs greeted every furry face that showed up with happy dog behavior and the usual greetings.


 The big boys have their own section


Meet Lucky, one of my favorites at the park. He’s there almost every morning with his dad, Terry, a sweet, intelligent veteran that rescued this cutie a couple of years ago. Lucky is a glen malin terrier and he is one sweet pooch.  He ambles over to the gate, toes pointed out in glen terrier fashion, the minute the boys and I pull up to welcome us back.   Not sure I have the correct spelling for this breed …

The boys and I appreciate your continued interest in our adventures. Hugs, Shawna

  1. Beautiful and the boys are having fun too. Looks like we could send some rain and chill factor there but would not like to ruin your fun. Right now it is a bit windy and sunny, showers this morning with real rain expected tonight but just these bits still help keep creeks in their banks somewhat. But I-5 flooded over yesterday near Maxwell. Closed the highway.
    Have a great week!
