Last weekend the grandkids came to visit with their Mom and Dad. Chris made us chicken enchiladas while the kids went out to play. They found over a dozen starfish down at the boat launch. I joined them over there and counted birds. I also found two mother seals with pups on the rocks across the bay! The kids enjoyed watching them through my binoculars. It’s always fun to share nature with my grandkids and these three in particular just love it!
On a sad note, my daughter's dog passed away in her sleep on Tuesday night from kidney failure. I have only gotten to know Widigt since my daughter moved back to Maine with her husband last fall. I have never been around boxers before but Widigt quickly won me over. She was such a sweet dog; joyful and playful, but calm. I loved that she was not a barker, yet she was protective of Renee if necessary. We are all going to miss her. Renee was here on Tuesday and Widgit was shivering from the cold, so Renee wrapped her up in a blanket like a doggie burrito while I turned up the heat. She looked so cute that I snapped this picture of her. Little did I know it would be her last.
