Free Hour Walkies

Did you know that on Sunday we got an extra hour of daylight?  When mom told me that I was all like, WHAT?  After I got over my amazements, I told mom to chip chop and take me on a walkie!

Of course, mom got up right quick and got my leash and we were off!

We hemmed and hawed about where we should go, if we should get in the car or just walkie around the hood.

We decided to just walkie the hood and set off for our favourite trail along the Colquitz River.

It's been raining quite a bit lately so the river has lots of water in it.

That's a good thing because the salmon are coming back to spawn.

You can see how fast the water is going over the rocks!  We kept looking for a fishy but didn't see any.

There's lots of different kinds of mushrooms out so mom's always looking for some to take their picture...

Most of the leaves are off the trees and on the ground now.  Both mom and I like autumn days, it's nice and cool and much nicer to walk forever than in the hot summertime!

We might not have seen fishies yet but there was a duck!

Lots of pretty coloured leafers to see...

We got to the end of the part of the trail we walk and we about to turn back when we saw some other peoples taking another trail.  Mom and I conferred and decided that we should check out this trail too!  We went over a bridge and when mom looked over the side, do you know what she saw?  A salmon!  He was too quick for her to take a photo though but he was real big!

Then mom looked down the river and there was this guy!

Just patiently waiting for his dinner to swim by...

Mom and I were gone on walkies for over an hour!  I think we used up that free time we got pretty good... hopefully we get another free hour next weekend!
