Category Archives: Salish Sea

Sky and I went to an agility event last weekend and had a chance to stay with friends of a friend who live on a bluff overlooking part of the Salish Sea. It was really very nice of them to take us in. Their little beach is 149 steps down from the their yard and we didn’t mind the walk at all. Sky was excited to smell the saltwater and chew on salty pieces of driftwood. It was pretty chilly so I didn’t throw anything into the water for her to chase. We enjoyed sunset and sunrise colors over the rugged Olympic Mountains. It was a good way to wind down in the evening and to wake up in the morning.

Don’t even ask about our agility results.

Last weekend Sky and I went to an agility trial at Mount Vernon, just across the Cascades from here. We stayed in the little camper at the venue and had a terrific time. Sky was impressive with her drive and enthusiasm for the courses and she even managed to get one qualifying run out of thirteen chances! We need to spend more time training but this is a process and it’s great fun for both of us.

In addition to the trial we got to spend time with an old friend and her dogs. Theresa took us to a couple of places for walks in the evening. We liked getting away from the venue and enjoyed some leash-free time. These images are from a low tide walk near the mouth of the Skagit River. While the dogs played I got to enjoy looking at some interesting plants and I watched for birds too. It was a nice break.

At some point, I’ll figure out how to get Sky’s videos uploaded and posted to the blog.
