Take A Hike

On Sunday, DH and I took Brie and headed into town. It was such a beautiful day that we wanted to take advantage of it so we decided on a hike :o)

We parked at Carlton Park, on the northside of the city. While DH went to get poop bags, I took the time to take some pictures of the lovely tulips that were in bloom -

Our city is divided in two by the Saint John River. There are two main bridges plus an old train bridge which has been converted into a walking path -

This path is part of the NB Trail system and this is what we took to cross over to the southside -

There were so many people out walking. A lot of dogs too and thankfully, Brie was not in one of her snotty moods. LOL! We took the path along the green and when we stopped for a drink, I took a picture of the ladies that are part of a fountain -

After reading Lori-Ann's Blog post about her trip to the Legislature, I took a picture of the top of it that was redone in copper -

We got all the way into the downtown core and found some ice cream :o) Hey, with all that walking, we needed the fuel! Brie even got her own. She eats the whole thing, cone and all. I wish I had taken a picture :oS

On our way back, we stopped at Officer Square and played fetch with Brie. I had brought her Kong along with us. Even though she was almost dead on her feet, she still wanted to play. At this point in our hike, DH wasn't sure who he should be more worried about, me or Brie. Luckily Brie got carried back across the walking bridge. Me, not so lucky ;o)

It was a wonderful day though and a nice chance to enjoy the sun. Unfortunately with all the stress, I came down with a cold :o( It's not surprising. My meeting with N, work and P is tomorrow so wish me luck! I told N that it was a good thing she was going to be there because I needed someone to stop me from strangling P ;o) LOL! Thanks for all the good wishes and I'll update you as soon as I can!

Good luck tomorrow Cathey. Hope that things will run smoothly for you and N is able to keep you from instigating an "unfortunate" accident to P.

Looks like the nice weather has found you too. The pictures of your walk around town are lovely. Sounds like Brie had a great time too. And ice cream!!! What a lucky dog.

Cheers

Sounds like you had a wonderful day.

I spent a few summers visiting NB as a child and the pic of the bridge brings it all back for me.

Good luck with your meeting tomorrow. I'll be thinking of you.

Nice pics, Cathey!

Your dog is absolutely spoiled, LOL. Such a trip with Frank would be disasterous!
He would have bitten at least one, had the runs from the icecream, and would have been dragged back, since he's an akward 28 pound sausage that wiggles! LOL.

Good thing Brie is itty -bitty ;o)

Hoping things go well at the meeting!
