Roscoe Observation Deck

With a stretch of quiet summer evenings, Roscoe is enjoying his observation deck while the Hu-Dad reads a good book.

Hu-Dad is enjoying his summer evenings by sitting on the deck, reading a good book, and being cooled by the marsh breezes. The Herd uses the time to watch the wildlife and kayakers (some of whom might qualify as wildlife) from our observation deck.

Kinda fun, ain't it, Hu-Dad?

Yes, it’s been quite a weird year, but we do have to take some time to count our blessings too. Quiet evenings with family certainly qualify as a big blessing.

That's good, Hu-Dad. You should be a writer or something.

    It is so beautiful to see Roscoe (and ALL the Herd) relaxing in a good, happy, beautiful home where love flows infinitely ❤️🐾

    Roscoe-I just LOVE your tongue hanging out-it’s almost like your emotions coming out. Of course Hu-Dad’s talent taking those awesome pictures helps so much! I agree we all should count our blessings too.
