A week has come and gone. We have had a very quiet time here. The weather has been perfect...nice breezy days in the mid 80s with no humidity and wonderful cool nights! One afternoon it actually rained for a couple of hours. Haven't heard that in a long time.
As you can see, the sign has good ideas, but the 2 things we would like to do are not there...hiking and jeeping. We are still looking for information on places to go that are close by.
We haven't been sitting around twiddling our thumbs though. Our pups (and the two legged folks that live in Belle) have had several nice playtimes at the river. Especially Dover...she loves the water.
Joe and I have been early morning walkers at different stages in our lives. It's not hiking, but it does give us a good cardiac workout.
There is a beautiful country road here and we have managed a couple of two and four mile walks.
There are enough inclines to get the old heart pumping and we do feel so much better when we do it. I do think the scenery is pretty, there is very little traffic, and the deer are fun to watch.
We have driven to Kalispell, MT a couple of times. They have a Murdoch's Ranch and Home Supply there. It's the only store in the area that sells Blue Buffalo Wilderness dog food. We purchased 4 huge bags full!
The drive to Kalispell from Polson is about 51 miles along the west shore of Flathead Lake along US 93. It is a beautiful ride! The lake on one side and rolling farmland and meadows on the otherside
As you drive along, you pass through several small communities...Elmo, Rollins,Lakeview, and Somers.
There are also a couple of state parks on this side of the lake we want to explore.
We did have a visitor Saturday...Val and her chocolate lab Georgia were here for the night on their way to West Yellowstone. We met them at Lazydays in Tucson last April. It was great to see them again!
Isn't it just so great how we can "run into folks we have met before? And what a great way our blogs help us stay in touch?
Well, it's about time to start supper. Joe just bought a new Weber Q 120 grill. Yes, George, you read that right! Tonight it's chicken, veggies, and pasta salad.
Hope everyone has had a nice weekend.
and God Bless!
Y'all come back!
