Out & About With The Family

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“The family is one of nature’s masterpieces.”

Maggie’s human sibling Julie

  Yesterday after Maggie’s big adventure described in Fog On The Pumpkin Patch we were just chilling on the home front. Then the sun came out. Maggie’s human sibling Julie asked if I wanted to “Walk the Stanford Dish?” Maggie gave me the OK, go ahead look in between running her paws in a deep sleep. Only humans can walk the dish. Dogs use to be allowed before Stanford University put in stronger conservation plans. I felt like the last local resident to walk the dish-until yesterday. It was high noon. We set the Map My Run app on the iPhone for a “walk”. The first leg up is a killer. It was the first of many killers. Beautiful views and nature everywhere. Squirrels were chilling and scurrying about. It’s a squirrels haven up there. Squirrel metropolis?

Red tailed hawks were flying overhead when we came to the “Dish” (which is a radio telescope).

The best part was when a jackrabbit crossed the road.

At the end of our 5 mile hike we were hot, sweaty, and hungry. We went to Sono Sushi to get refreshed. We sat at the sushi bar. Magic. Boats of beautiful sushi floated by. We selected delicious plates of heaven.

Energized we left the Sono Sushi for some gelato.

Then it was time to scamper home to walk Maggie for her afternoon walk. Afterwards Maggie and I piled into the Subbie car to drop Julie off elsewhere. It was a happy day spent with family out and about in between pumpkins, nature walks, sushi and home sweet home again. A full, family masterpiece of fun.

Happy Maggie. Home sweet home.

    Maggie was back home napping. Sadly, no dogs allowed on these trails, only humans.
