Vacations Are So Exhausting

Our vacation at Harrison Bay State Park in Tennessee has been terrific, but we have photographic evidence that vacations are exhausting.

Sunday’s rains evolved into a nice, cool day on Monday, allowing us to do lots of hiking around the park. And, after a morning of hiking, Hu-Dad took the windows out of the Jeep and we went exploring Chattanooga. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed meeting people wherever we went.

And then we arrived back at the campsite and Hu-Dad took us on another walk. Holy cow, we might sleep straight through the night and beyond sunrise Tuesday. Whatever is Hu-Dad thinking?

    Hu-dad probably had a smug look on his face as he was taking these photos.

    We had a busy weekend too, at dog shows though, and the collies were exhausted too. Exhausted, but happy. 🙂 The best weekends involve dogs!

    The true test of a great vacation…. exhaustion! The herd will need a vacation from their vacation ????

    Peggy Lee summed it up for your huskies in her song “Is That All There Is? We are bored! Let’s get home! Next time visit Crabtree Falls on the Blue Ridge Parkway!

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
