We spent a few days at the beach, mainly to dig for razor clams but also for a much needed change of scenery for me. Winter has gone on for five months and I needed to see something besides snow and ice. The dogs were happy too. Willow got to run and run and swim in a river too. She’s a natural in the water. And all the smells! It was very stimulating for a seven month old puppy. Sky liked it too. They made new dog friends everywhere we went. And they found sticks. And a floor mat from someone’s car.

And dogs. I had to go to the Okanogan to do some business yesterday and a friend suggested a short field trip to look for birds. I could hardly turn it down given that there are almost no birds around here, not even at the feeders. It was nice to be somewhere that was nearly without snow although it was cold and windy and ice was forming in the littlest places. We saw a few ducks and Bald Eagles and magpies. Geology of the place is very different from here. You really should click through the photos to see the rock details. The dogs were happy to get their feet wet. I did not encourage them to go swimming. They also were delighted to find lots of sticks of various sizes!

Dogs don’t care about the weather, too much.

Mostly just Sky. Luna was there watching. It’s hard to get old and have to stay on the sidelines.

Earlier in the month, we enjoyed the deep powder snow and sparkling icicles.
