We love to walk at our house! We take in the scenery and see how it changes from day to day, season to season, but even with the changes that go on, it can get boring. Mom likes routine, but she doesn’t believe in taking the same walks day in and day out which is why several times a month we get in the car and head out for a change of scenery!
Last weekend, we visited Gramma. Mom and I decided to take Bailie on a walk through the swamp on the Minnetonka trail system. When we first moved back to the USA, we walked these trails all the time, but I haven’t set a paw on this one in about two years, and for Bailie it was her first time. Katie stayed home with Gramma as it was too far for her to go.
We have to walk through a neighborhood to get to the gravel trail that goes through a huge swamp. The good news is that Minnesota doesn’t have alligators or crocodiles, so it is safe for all of us on these trails. The grass is so tall it is like walking through a chute of grass with cat tails most of the way. At first Bailie thought it was a field of sausages on sticks but she learned otherwise
One spot has a wooden bridge. Bailie and I needed a short break as we were pretty warm. The entire walk took about 1:40. We were both worn out when we got back to Gramma’s house, but it was so much fun being in a place I hadn’t been for a long time, taking in all the smells and sights. If you are bored with your walks, try a change of scenery, it will really help you stay in the mood!
