being so close to the chilly, chilly ocean ( even in summer on this part of the coast the ocean only warms up to 50°F ), the lake regularly gets socked in fog in the early evening due to a land-sea temperature gradient cycle similar to what you sea in san francisco. it’s not unusual for it to roll in very quickly and it really it adds a magicalness to evenings and early mornings before the sun burns it back to the sea.
i guess that it’s a sign of the modern times given the popularity of san francisco’s karl the fog that it’s hard to not anthropomorphize the phenomenon. frida and i spent some time on our morning walk trying to come up with names for the fog while wondering if there was a bear lingering in the mist.
odin took my new favorite picture of him and frida at camp. he’s got a good selfie game.
frida didn’t get the memo that malamutes aren’t supposed to like water and jumped right in the lake.
it reminded that 10 years ago odin and dearly departed mauja the malamute first visited camp 10 years ago and a loon tried to drown mauja ( and that i wrote longer blog posts 10 years ago )!
it’s not like we never eat fast food, but I love that odin prefers to eat the homemade steak Caesar salad we prepared for the trip and doesn’t even ask for fast food available at plaza.
frida can sometimes be a bit of a seat hog but all things considered she’s an excellent travel buddy 🙂
even as foiled garden thief, she gets more than her fair share of the fruits of labor.
she’s in good spirits as long as i keep flipping her berries 🙂
heading home after a week on vacation. bringing a cousin home with us. the three of them are packed into the back seat for a 6 hour drive. frida likes to rest her tired head on the center console of the jetta and maybe takes up more than her fair share of space but the humans don’t seem to mind 🙂
