Near the top of the first hill, we had an awesome backdrop of the stormy skies. Mom tried to get us to pose together. We came up with this:
|Ragnar and me|
Pretty nice shot, but uh ... she didn't get the sky in. Oops.
She tried to get us to pose together on the sidewalk, but we just didn't feel like it. She finally gave up. I stood there laughing for a sec - and being the sneak that she is ...
|"Ha roo roo roo!"|
Oh, well. Is IS a pretty cool, gnarly sky, isn't it?
Up around the curve, Dad held our leashes real quick while Mom snapped this:
|"Look away, Ragnar!"|
"Got it, Mags!"
On to the walking! We went up about a gazillion hills, which was wonderful, then got to where it levels out a bit.
|Me and Ragnar!|
We walked through some pretty garden areas ...
|Me and Ragnar again!|
... and past some pretty houses.
|"Mom likes that grey one best!"|
"It matches me!"
Aren't the skies cool?!?! (Mom and Dad checked the radar closely before we left, in case anyone was wondering!)
Time to start heading downhill!
|Guess who? Yep. Me and Ragnar!|
Oh. And then another steep uphill. When we got to the top of that one, Mom asked us very nicely to pose. Since
|Polargold's Margaret Thatcher and Polargold's Einherjar|
I think if me and the Viking cut an album, that could be our cover art. What do you think?
And finally ... heading downhill again:
|"Almost home, Ragnar!"|
"Less than a mile, I think!"
It started raining again about 15 minutes after we got home -- great timing, huh? Thanks for coming with us!
