Liberty Park

So Mocha and I changed it up this morning and we went down to Liberty Park, which is downtown, right beside the Cumberland River. One of the reasons I took Mocha there this morning was to see how she'd do out of her comfort zone, so to speak, since she's used to walking only in the park, where it's relatively quiet, and although we do run into people, the crowds are at a minimum, which is not the case down at the river. Lots of folks head down there every day; to fish in the pond, to walk their dogs, to exercise, and to sit and just watch the barges go by.

I'm proud to say she did just fine, I was expecting her to start throwing dandruff (a sure sign of stress with her) but nope, she was cool as a cucumber. She was more alert than usual, but that's to be expected, with her being in unfamiliar surroundings with lots of people, and other distractions like lawn tractors nearby, geese flying around and honking, cars driving by and plenty of other dogs. But, from now on we'll head back to our little slice of heaven which is the park; for one it's a lot closer, without having to deal with the traffic, and I for one prefer walking in the woods vs. being out in the open and I think Mocha likes it a lot more as well...more smells to check out Here are a few pics from today's venture:

The fishing pond


Homes of the rich and famous, across the river


Where the rich and famous keep their boats

Looking towards downtown...man, I used to catch some nice bass in this river back when I had my bass boat

It was there, and I had a camera so...

Random pic but the rose bushes gave me an idea...

Not the greatest lighting with the sun beating down on her, but hey, I actually got Mocha to pose in front of the roses AND she was looking at the camera

Thanks for looking

Thanks, Ken...haha those homes are way above my pay grade...but get this...yes they are "on the river" but, both houses are near a bluff which is about 100 feet high so they can't enjoy the water. Nice view, yes, but what good is being on the river if you don't have a boat dock?

That looks to be a pretty place, but I hear you about walking where there aren't very many people. I love it when the weather is so bad that no one is out and I can actually let the dogs off leash! without having to continually scan the distance.

The vulture is an interesting shot. I've rarely seen any in our area, except in the first few years when the West Nile Virus swept through Colorado. I think they inhabit close to the same slot in the ecosystem as the magpies and crows, who were killed off by the virus on its first swing through the area. Since then, the balance has been reestablished and vultures seem to be rare again.

I think turkey buzzards and vultures are the city birds, we have tons of them here.

All over Louisiana too. I think it's all the dead armadillos along the roadside.

Great pictures and Mocha is posing very well! She matches the color palette of the stone work and then a nice contrast of the pop of color from the roses.

What leash do you have - is it a long one?

Thanks, modm! It's a 15 foot training leash, whenever we go in the woods I clip my end to my belt loop, that way I can have both hands free to use my camera, and if we encounter people/dogs I just tell Mocha "stop!" and I gather up enough leash so she has about 2-3 feet. We have leash laws in the county and city so a 15 foot leash gives her the freedom to be a dog and explore and wander a bit, instead of being glued to my side

I think this is the one

Thanks, dax! That park by the river and the marina are one of the things this city has done right. I was pleasantly shocked when they announced the plans and started construction; the norm around here is to raze anything green and build subdivisions and strip malls so to have a park that size is really nice.
