Daily Walk - June 6th

My faithful companion and I walk every day, all year round. Nature provides an ever changing view on the property. The spring and summer months are my favorite with all of the wildflowers. Each week the view is transformed and it's always a delightful surprise. Ben is my 14 year old golden retriever and soul mate. If you've ever had a close relationship with an animal, you know what I mean. I shaved him this spring for the first time and he is much more comfortable. The vet says it isn't often she sees a retriever this old. I think we can contribute his good health to our daily walk, a lot of pampering and just good luck. I prefer to walk early in the morning because the bird song in the meadow remind me of the ebb and tide of the ocean. Do you have a special place that you like to spend time? Your sanctuary or private place? I'd love to see a pic...

What a lovely post today, and I love the comparison of birdsong and the ocean. I am getting ready to work a daily walk into my schedule. Down to the ocean I will go.

Stunning Julie! Believe it or not when I'm walking our yard my cat Tom follows me everywhere. Pets are so giving.

Julie, what a nice montage of photos! Love your puppy! I had a golden when I was growing up named Ginger. My Lab/Keeshond mix Smokey gave me 16 wonderful years! She was something else!

I really love my backyard and that is my very favorite place to be!
