Again With the Wind

Frio, Willow and Dr. K
Flat out windy when Willow, Frio, Dr. K and I set off on our morning trek.  It didn't get any better during the entire outing.  The conditions weren't bad, though, but definitely a bit chilly--quite a change from the usual heat.

We did our normal hike today, making countless stops in the shade even though it wasn't hot; Willow has a penchant for lying in shadow despite the cool weather.

After the exploration we all piled into the CR-V and went for a drive around several different neighborhoods; it's always interesting to see other people's houses and the particular landscaping residents have done to enhance their domiciles.

Isn't this rock really cool?
