We had a marvelous time in Perry at the 2013 WCA Nationals, and some successful agility runs. Sky completed her AXJ title and earned her first AX leg. This is dog and handler's first time running at the excellent/master level and it has been both fun and challenging. We met some great new friends and saw many long time buddies, I would recommend a trip to the nationals to everyone!
Sky and I visited my parents in Columbia SC early April on our way to the WCA Nationals. We visited Saluda Shores State Park and had a great run between visiting and running agility! Beautiful azalea blooming.
The Fort on the island, aka "Statia". This is a Dutch Island in the Windward Islands, (go to Puerto Rico and turn left from the states).
Walking down the goat path from upper town to lower town.
Joe and our host Furman enjoying the view on the old slave path leading from lower town to the main town. Statia was the first place to recognize the United States during the revolutionary war as a sovereign state!
Dinner out, Joe, Deb, Furman, Nan, and Anne - what a wonderful time we had. The only thing missing was Sky!
View from upper town.
View from the shower, and no, I'm not kidding!
This is what I looked and felt like after walking into the crater of the volcano on the island, but is was well worth it!
Fresh caught spiny lobster on our friends back porch, it doesn't get much better than this.
Debbie, Rico and Ian, sadly on the day we left. Ian travels from the states to the island with Anne and Furman, and Rico looks after their place on Statia when they are not there.
We actually came across a ground hog, akc woodchuck in the NE, that was slow to pop into his den and gave me time to snap a shot, we were across a ravine from him which probably made him a little braver.
There was no snow on the ground this day but the temps were in the teens, Sky's hand me down coat from Sage felt pretty good to her.
Sky injured her neck running agility in Concord in Nov, we didn't realize it until she came up lame at her next trial. Off to see Dr. Tammy in Dillsboro for massage and acupuncture, with electrical stimulation. This and a trip to the doggie chiropractor made her right as rain. We are so fortunate to have a pain specialist in our area!
