Taking Our Cat for a Walk in Alaska

Taking Our Cat for a Walk in Alaska

Today was yet another beautiful day out, therefore we decided it was time to take our 10 year old, 27 pound maine coon mix out for a walk. cat8cat

It takes him a little while to get going and he can not go too far without getting exhausted. But he is too funny when we take him on walks. He usually walks a ways behind us checking every little thing and stopping at the sound of a branch cracking. But once  we get too far away from him he begins to howl until he feels like we are a safe distance from him. I wanted to get close to him when he was howling, so I hid behind a tree as he walked by, calling out to my parents who were too far away for his comfort.

Beach Combing in Alaska

Beach Combing in Alaska

Today the weather was nice and it was time to stretch our legs. So my parents and I made a picnic and did some beach combing. Our main objective is to find a glass ball floating off from the Japan shoreline, but alas we have yet to find one, though many people in our area find them on the rare occasion. Today we found mostly useless items, that may or may not be missed by the previous owner. Either way, we got a fun time while combing the beach.

I usually end up straying from the beach to go down by the water and search for sea creatures. The colors of everything always surprise me every time.
