I told you about my bike ride to our favorite campsite in Colorado. This is a sight that will always make me smile. For those of you who are wondering, that yellow thing is R's "peanut" that we use for his elbow exercises. That peanut has spent so many vacations with us in the LabMobile that we've named it "Penelope".
Not only does the campsite have stupendous views but the area around it is wonderful too. You cannot see all of them but we've counted five lakes in the vicinity. In this photo, two are in the middle and the biggest one is off to the left. You might immediately realize that our Labraduo adores those lakes! Daily swimming is part of our stays there.
Here is Shyla in one of the lakes. She uses her tail a lot while swimming. When she's ready to grab a ball and turn toward shore, she flips her tail up out of the water, creating water art.
This year, to her brother's chagrin, she learned to carry two balls at once. You can see an orange one back in her mouth and a yellow one in her front teeth. This new development is part of why we now have to bring three balls on every water outing. When we occupy Shyla's mouth with two tennis balls, we can throw the third for R.
With our continued foggy, misty, and rainy weather, looking at our photos from our time high in the mountains makes me nostalgic. The next photo was from one instant early this morning when the sky cleared just a tiny bit.
