Hondo DOG park.

My first time going to the Hondo dog park (Hillsboro) and Remsen was the lucky little man to experience this.  There were plenty of obstacles for dogs to play in and on–Remsen liked the ramp the most.  As you can see on the second photo he decided to sit on the ramp like a king on his throne. Remsen must have felt empowered.  The night was quite chilly as we were out there.  Photos taken with Nikkon D80 and Nikkor 50mm lens.  YES, the 50mm lens is my favorite.

It is Wednesday..my favorite day of the week and it started with Remsen today.  Mid-week..that means two more days closer to the weekend.

RANDOMS of Cannon Beach, OR

I have been here in Oregon for a year an a half–I missed the beaches on the East coast. First experience with the West coast beach. How did I not discover this beach until now? I’m glad the sun came out to play. With the sun beaming in the low 70s, it felt great to have my adventure at the beach with breeze brushing against my face. The gloomy and wet weather here in Oregon–you gotta venture out when it is nice. This was my moment to do so. A impromptu with my better half and Niko–Cannon beach–a place of serene and characteristics with plethora of RANDOMS to capture. Niko (my Nikon D80) and I went on an adventure and collected randoms lying around the beach. I was surely satisfied! The Nikkor 50mm came out to play with Niko. The grain of the sands mixed with the burnt barks, the strings of leaves, the seaweed roots, and the single feathers from the birds.

Calligraphy any one? The end of this feather was just right for that!

I couldn’t help and think of a bon fire finished burning from the night before. I love the texture of this burnt bark and of course my favorite random capture of the day was the single feathers.

Curled strings of I don’t know what?! Maybe long leaves of some sort?

A single feather entangled in the string leaves?

Tangled seaweed roots washed up on shore.

Happy Monday and venture out–do you love random things?

REMSEN the Frenchie.

The loving owners of Remsen, we are grateful to have this opportunity to care for their little man.  Particular any one is when it comes to their little; We got lucky to be able to bond and give tender, love, and care to this Frenchie.  B and I couldn’t help it and compare him to our other Frenchie we dog-sit:BUTTERS.

He is such a playful dog.  Many are playful..this little one can play until you are tired.  If I could describe him in three words: energetic, loving, obedient!  There are moments he just doesn’t feel like obeying and it is ok—no one is perfect right?

The bone he loves to just chew on..my he is like a little baby getting his hands on everything.  I forget what it is like to have a kid around.  He definitely reminded me QUICK!

He uses the side of chairs, my feet, and any edge he can find to lean his bone on while he chews away.

Last but not least he is such a GREAT sport at being my dog model.  <33333  Many more postings to share of this little one!  Do you ever dog-sit or have one that you adore to death? Happy Wednesday.

SOCKS for the toes and feet.

 

Spring and I am talking about socks? Another one of my many fetish. Yes, Oregon Spring is quite an odd ball compared to what I am use to in the warm and sunny Florida.  Ever since I moved to the West coast I live in socks.  In Florida I only wore them when needed, which was almost close to never, unless I was going for a run with my sneakers.  During the winter and spring here in Oregon I can’t sleep without them.  My toes and feet love me for covering them during these seasons.  While strolling around Target I came across a few socks.  The chevron pattern one caught my eye; one of the many favs.  Scored some wool socks for 3 bucks.  Wool is a pricey piece of fabric and great for people who have arthritis to keep those joints warm and covered for flexibility in the cold weather.
