Holiday Hike with the Hounds

Well, it’s the end of the year and the week between Christmas and New Year’s is always slower for me. Thank God! I worked like a “dog” up until Christmas day, even worked Christmas Eve and am enjoying the quieter time.

When I do get time I love to hike with or with out my dogs. There is wonderful trail in Pacifica, CA very near San Francisco that I like to visit when I have the time. It is the Montara State Park trail. It’s an easy trail that eventually ends up on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH, HWY 1) where you can cross it and take a walk on the beach. Sometimes, I have to pinch myself when I see the natural beauty here. The weather this week has been cold, crisp and brisk. Great sweater weather! Perfect to take a little hike with the hounds.

I have included a few pictures and videos featuring two of my dogs, Nellie the Norwich Terrier and Dolce, the Mix Terrier. This hike is just perfect for Nellie. She is now 13 years old and still can keep up. I bring a doggie water bottle and take a few breaks so she doesn’t get too exhausted. Dolce who is 5 years old is full of vim and vigor. I think she could climb Mt. Everest. Her engine is always running and loves to walk and walk and walk.

It was a glorious day and truly a treat to take a hike in the middle of the day!!!
