Today we took a different path on our Wednesday walk. I had errands to run in town, so I gathered up Cleo as my companion. It is good for puppies to experience new places and sounds.....and this would indeed be new for her.
Today's trip was a walk around the Conway Scenic Railway. This morning it looked as though the day was going to be a complete washout again, but early in the afternoon, the sun broke thru the clouds for a little spell. Fortunately for me, it was when I needed to run some work errands, which brought me into town.
Cleo wasn't quite sure what to make of the old railroad tracks and the towering old trains. After a few balks, she decided that maybe it was not really that scarey and maybe it might even be fun to be a bit adventurous. This railway, although very old has been restored and is home to the Polar Express that runs every year here at Christmas time. (and is incredibly awesome!)
We walked along the tracks for a spell and then poked our heads inside some of the resting trains. The workmanship that was put into these train cars all those years ago is nothing short of amazing.........and the signs..
Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs....
Cleo and I walked and walked and then walked some more. She was having a good time and I know that there will not be many more incredibly warm, breezy days left before the cold settles in.
I have read that there are bloggers who feel that a blog full of pictures does not carry the same weight as a blog full of words..........well, my Wednesdays will forever more be a blog full of pictures as I am enjoying my Wednesday walks. Taking the camera along with me has really made me take an extra look at my surroundings and in these past few weeks, I have gained such an extraordinary appreciation of those little things that my camera picks up. Kind of like stopping to smell the roses....so I won't apologize for the abundance of photos :-)
and Catching some "C's"
When I said that the sun poked it's head out for a little while......little was the operative word...LOL. Once home, the dark clouds had settled in again, so a hot cup of coffee, a few crackers and some scrumptiously soft cashmere, made for a cozy afternoon.
As a footnote, I want to thank you all so much for your kind comments on my little shawl. I was completely overwhelmed....Thank~You!!
