The Island

We've been struggling a bit here recently, so a walk out to the island on Saturday, with the dogs, was just what we all needed. Fresh air, communing with nature, appreciating the simplicity of things that go on and on regardless.

We found a deer mummy. Looks like it was swept downstream and caught under some fallen trees maybe. The skin was taught like paper. Mia was rubbing on it for a few minutes before I realized what she might be up to. Luckily, it had already lost its smell.

On the way back up the other side of the island we stopped for a game of curling/bocce rock.
Lazlo, of course, had to get in the river. But this is all the deeper he went. I guess he's not completely retarded.
