Video compilation of one week of kayaking on the Chassahowitzka River
We rented kayaks from Kayak Karavan near Homosassa, FL for a week. Roger went a little crazy with the GoPro and cut it down to this short compilation. Enjoy!
Took Dazey and Enzo to the Brohard Paw Park today. Its like a dog park but its a beach so its friggin awesome. They had a great time and behaved themselves and were awesome. Roger shot some video and made this for your enjoyment.
We have been enjoying some mellower temperatures at Myakka State Forest the last two days. Today has been a rainy one but still nice enough to work from our ‘patio’ which consists of a folding table, folding chairs, and the trailer awning supplying protection from the rain.
We have stepped up our game with the dogs as well. Besides regularly exercizing them with the Bike Tow Leash we are also working on some different training regimens like Sit and Down. One neat thing we started doing was making snacks with their Red Kongs.
The ASPCA website was where I first learned about doing something beyond simply sticking some treats in there. They recommend putting a high value treat in first and then filling a mixture of dry and wet food and sealing it all in with some peanut butter. Needless to say Dazey and Enzo took to them like dogs and Kongs. The problem was they were getting all the food out in just a few minutes. The ASPCA recommends that if that happens then you can freeze them so it takes a little longer Today was the first day we did that and it took them a bit longer to get all the food out. Instead of 10 minutes now it takes 15 minutes…
Oh well they are happy which means we are happy.
At the end of the family weekend at Peaks of Otter Kate, Dazey, and I ran down to Roanoke for a day trip.
Blue Ridge Parkway
To get from Peaks of Otter to Roanoke the quickest route is on the Blue Ridge Parkway which you can learn all about here at the wikipedia’s. There are lots of great views on the road and they built a crap ton of pull off spots for you to get out take photos and have lunch. Please don’t stop in the middle of the road to look that views.
Rolling in Roanoke
We stopped in Roanoke for a beer and walked around downtown. Its a pretty cool town and a place I would be interested in exploring more.
