Took a walk today in the sunshine

 Today we had one of our few sunny winter days and we made the most of it. I didn't get any pics of my furry friends but here is the area that we took our walk in behind our public library. 

Hey Mom. Its a sunny day. Can we go for a walk? You betcha because you both have been so good and
deserve a nice long walk in the woods.
This is the front of our Library.  It is nestled in the pines. For a small rural community
they really make things nice for us. We even have a skate park
for the skateboarders across the street from the Library and
Tennis courts and a little park with things and swings for the little
ones to enjoy
This Tennis courts and there is a public pool directly across from the library
The beginning of the trail
                                        Heading up the trail and leaving the Library behind us
 Heading up the mountain makes you feel like you are on a journey in Lord of the Rings or going into a fairy land, Heheh, my imagination runs wild when I walk through here.

 Heading back down the hill and at the bottom there is a stair case and a little bridge that you cross over a little creek. The dogs like to get a drink from the clear cold water there
This is the back side of the Library    They give outdoor plays and functions here during the warm Summer months. There is sort of a little park area here with picnic tables to sit at and enjoy the nice days.

This is where the Mill is and there is a dock and some of  the local boaters have there boats tied up here.

   Well, I hope you enjoyed your walk in the sunshine with us.  All of this is just a couple of blocks  from our home. For such a small town in Toledo, Oregon,  it is a very comfortable little towns and the people are very nice and genuine. Real down home folks.  On our next walk I will take you down town to meet some  of our locals.  The Mayor of our town is a very nice woman that owns and runs the Cottage Quilt store.
                                 Now you can't get more down home then that can you?
