When we were young
Wonder, a bit scared, fascinated... all of those things were apparent in their reaction.
These days they get near a lake or river and in they go. One time Bliss swam over half a mile out into an arm of Georgian Bay after a Canada goose that was leading him away from its flock that had a large number of goslings. He could no longer hear me and would have drowned but for an alert cottager who responded to my frantic yelling. I think he learned his lesson - he's not gone out that far again, but ducks, geese, gulls, anything on water, swimming or flying above it - fair game as far as I can tell - though he tends not to swim out too far rather goes along the shoreline.
Dogs. Labradors particularly, you have to love them even when you want to knock them on the head and say don't be so silly!
Aren't we lucky that we have such amazing technology that some of the images that we so love can be revisited so easily, not just fondly held in our memories?
Hope you make some happy memories today! Or remember things that make you happy.
