They don't seem to be so dog-friendly down in these parts. There seem to be all sort of restrictions as to where you can take your dog - even though we keep Sasha leashed and we do the PPP routine. So, in keeping with my policy of ignoring dumb rules, we found a nice little community park with all the prerequisites for a lovely outing - near the water, it had a pier, trees for shade, some picnic shelters, no cost ... but they didn't allow dogs. Not to be deterred, we walked down to the pier, Sasha in tow. After spending some time enjoying the scenery and watching a not-yet successful fisherman, we headed back to the car to get our packed lunch. From a distance a woman was yelling that no dogs were allowed in the park - not even on the paved road ! I didn't give her the satisfaction of letting on that I'd heard her, but we packed up and set off for another area.
We did find another, lovelier, area and had an enjoyable lunch under the trees. As I lunched, little black biting bugs lunched on me - ah, the food chain - and I thought humans were always near the top. However, our ouster from the park led us to an area we might otherwise have missed, and where I found the subjects for today's post. Have you ever witnessed such a supercilious look ?
