Since there was a break in the rain and the temperature is still warm, my humans decided to hang out at the lake. Although I live in Minnesota, sadly I don’t visit the lakes much. But, was really excited to tag along.
I really enjoyed watching the minnows and sunfish swimming around.
And before you knew it, I was jumping in the water and exploring.
I’m happy my humans always have a frisbee in their car for emergency pick stops. You just never know when it will come in handy. As you can see I’m working on my “doggy paddle” skills.
What a nice, peaceful evening we had. The lake was nice a clam. Sadly it was time to head home. On the way, I sure was smelling good, like a wet dog good.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Don’t forget to enter my current giveaway for your chance to win three bags of Walkies! Fit Bites dog treats. Here is the direct LINK to enter.
My humans and I hit the road for a “historic” hike at Fort Ridgely. We have camped at the state park connected to this historic site but I have never visited. So we jumped into our car and headed out for some fresh air and bonding time.
Here is some history about Fort Ridgely:
“Built in 1853 as a police station to keep peace as settlers poured into the former Dakota lands, it withstood several attacks in the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 and became a training ground for Civil War recruits.”
To learn more visit the Minnesota Historical Society.
As we walked along the path my humans read the signs to me and explained what the rocks in the ground were.
My humans explained to me that the rock structures, we were seeing in the ground, were the foundation to the buildings at the fort. These structures were amazing to see and imaging what they were like when the buildings were on them.
Now time to pose in front of the monument.
I had so much fun visiting For Ridgely. Can’t wait to see where my adventures bring me next.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, see you on Monday!
