In the Shade September 22, 2020 at 11:05PM

Calliope, taking a break in the shade, as we walk the five mile loop of Lake Miramar Reservoir. It was a fairly warm day, and we got our required number of shadow breaks, where we consumed an adequate amount of water.

From the Scenic Overlook along the trail from Oak Oasis County Park, in San Diego County. I think the closest town is Lakeside.

Once, I was a tree.
Now, I am a husk.
Tomorrow I will be dust.

Tomorrow is lost to us all.
Be kind to each other.

Cooling Off September 18, 2020 at 10:29PM

Calliope loves laying down in water. Here she is getting cooled off. It was 102 degrees F on our little hike today and she just walked in and layed down, "Ploop!" We sat there for a while, and she just listened to nature. … Me too.

Shakespeare penned the oposite in his play, Venus and Adonis. “Like a red morn that ever yet betokened, Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field, Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds, Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.”

This is her, just rising from the water where she was lying down for a quick cool off. She really loves the water.
