Dog Days of Summer Week One
On the Summer Solstice, the large field in the off-leash area was freshly posted with its "keep off" signs. The field has been re-seeded to recover from soccer and other sports that were scheduled on the field all through the spring. It is a picturesque spot to watch a sport being played, but Athena will miss the games of tag which are often played there with her four-legged friends. Luckily, Fort Williams is a large, beautiful place to play and spend time with people, and with pets.
But the solstice was a beautiful day,
even in the early morning, the shadows were strong and the walkways near the lighthouse were very enjoyable. Athena is getting better and better on the leash, though off-leash, galloping is still her favorite mode.
