Another nice morning when we got out of bed. I had a bowl of cereal and then went over to Wal-Mart to pick up a few things. Came home and took Hiker on a 1.5 mile walk. It was already 70° at 9:00 am when we left. Sat on my patio for awhile this morning until it started getting too warm outside. The temps today were cooler than the past 2 or 3 days but still in the 80's. Got bored with just sitting on the sofa watching TV after lunch so I put Hiker's car seat harness on her and we drove over to Central Park in Saugus and did a 1.87 mile walk around the park. Even though it was right around 80° while we were walking, it didn't feel that hot because the was a cool wind coming in from the ocean, so it was kind of nice. They also have a dog park there called Central Bark. There was no one there with their dogs and I considered taking Hiker in a turning her loose so she could run, but then I thought better of it because the dog park is right up again the hills and they do have rattlesnake warnings all over this park. When we were walking around I saw this man in the park with a fishing rod. I thought at first he was just practicing his casting, but then I looked up and realized he had a kite attached to the fishing line. I thought that was pretty clever. Tomorrow afternoon I am taking Hiker over to my neighbor who does dog grooming. She lives around the corner from me and two houses down. I hope Hiker will be a good girl and not give her any trouble.
