Mom took Madison on a little field trip to Wayzata Beach the other day. They were at an agility trial not from from Wayzata, which is where Mom grew up, but Madison had never been there. It was the perfect opportunity to go walking between agility runs.
It was fairly cold out, and being a work day, there weren’t many people around which was nice. They went out on some of the docks to have a look at Lake Minnetonka.
The area along the lake has a lot of restaurants and walkways, including bridges over the water.
Mom wants to take my sisters paddle boarding some day. This place allows dogs, but it was closed for the season.
Madison found this Adirondack chair someone had donated to commemorate something with the University of Minnesota at the old depot, thus the maroon and gold tones. I think Madison looks nice on it.
At the end of the beach in the park, they found the little old log cabin. There were lots of squirrels racing around, but Madison managed to sit still and not take off.
I guess Madison isn’t afraid of the lake as she had no problem sitting on this bench at the end of the dock with her back to the water.
The high point of the trip is behind Madison in this photo. That is the actual Wayzata Beach area. Mom used to go swimming there as a little girl. Back when mom was about thirteen, she and a friend entered the milk carton boat race. They took their boat to the beach for a test run early in the morning. That was the last time Mom was at Wayzata Beach in the water.
What about the weaves? Madison was not doing weaves again at her agility trial. Mom had the portable set in the car, so she set them up in the parking lot. It worked great, but Madison still didn’t get her weaves on her next run. Notice the smirk? I think she got that in her genes from me. Don’t you think it looks just like my smirk?
