Where the Ocean Meets the Forest #NatureFriday

 This week I(Arty) want to take you for a little stroll along one of my favorite places, Stone Lagoon.  Mama and I both like this walkie because we can walk a loop where, on the first part, we see a redwood forest while we look for a local herd of Roosevelt Elk(we haven't found them yet, but I keep looking!), 

AND...


 ...The other way is a pretty stretch of beach along my ocean where I can get my paws in the sand(and Mama can sniff the fresh salt air)!



 We see all sorts of nature along this walk. Here we have a noisy Raven bird trying to act all reserved and stately.



 There are also bunches of driftwood where I can practiced my posing!



 On the way back to the car, we walk through a field of Sand Verbena! Also, if you look closely, you'll see a big log. I got to jump over it(you can see me doing that in Mamas video below)




 Mama has featured Sand Verbena in past posts, but here is a close another close up for those who may not have seen these pretty flowers yet.





 We found some pretty driftwood nature too! I wonder if maybe a family of gnomes live here?!


It's hard to put into words just how pretty this walkie can be so I had Mama put together a short video to show you.




You can see it HERE on YouTube!



Thanks for joining me for my walkie where the ocean meets the forest. 

We hope you all have the chance to get out this weekend and enjoy some nature!



 Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE

Squirrelly Thankful Thursday

Up here in Northy North California USA we don't have many tree rats. In fact, the stuffed squirrel in front of me was the closest I had been to a squirrel in a long time!



Imagine how thankful I was to get the chance to do a squirrel hunting refresher when Mama and I drove down the California coast.

We started seeing the furry beasts all over the place!
 On the rocks....



 AND...by the ocean! 
It was fun chasing them (when Mama let me).


Mama made a short video showing my mad hunting skills on one of our walkies:
You can watch it HERE on YouTube!


Although I had fun refreshing my squirrel hunting skills while I was on vacation, I was pretty thankful to come home and not have to worry about chasing tree rats out of my yard!

Feeling Groovy!

 Mama says the 50th Anniversary of some famous 60's Music Festival called Woodstock is later this week. She has always has a secret wish to be like one of those flower children you see in the pictures of the event, but she was too young. Plus,  could never pull of that flower child look anyway...
TeeHeeHee


Luckily, she has me

I look groovy as a beatnik, flower child, don't you think??



We are joining our friends at  Comedy Plus for the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop this week!

Nature Friday Among the Trees

Today we thought we would  tell you about a walk Mama and Daddy took through the Redwood Forest a couple of weeks ago.




You may ask yourself why we weren't tagging
 along(we sure did)! Mama says, for some reason or another, pups are not allowed in this part of the Redwood National Park. Something about bears and mountain lions that don't want to be friends with us and would much rather enjoy us in a more, well, culinary way.
 
Needless to say, after hearing this, we were fine with staying home.


Although we have redwood trees all around us, sometimes we forget just how big they are! 
Here is Daddy next to a fallen redwood and a little waterfall...




...and here he is on the bridge over the waterfall with a redwood tree right behind him.
The redwood trees sure do make Daddy look tiny!




Mama found a few flowers along their hike too!




There were Monkey flowers....





...and wild Iris's!




Those are some beautimous flowers, Jakey

and look what else she saw:
A huge wild rhododendron...




...with pretty pink flowers!




 
Redwood forests sure are pretty.


We sure hope Mama and Daddy find one we can hike in soon!!





 Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE
