Weekend....river visit

 It has been four weeks since our last Saturday morning visit to the Devil's Elbow.  SHE had to go somewhere one Saturday, it rained the next two, and last Saturday, we had the carpet cleaned.

 So we were very excited when we realised where we were going.
Bella
 The river level is way up.  The main dam is releasing water to avoid flooding--it's about 120% full.
 We walked around the track first--that's where Bella saw the calves. 
 The track had been graded and resurfaced since we were last there, so we didn't get bounced around driving on it.
 Everybody showed up for social hour.  The big boys went swimming, but we didn't like the higher water that covered our usual sniffing area.
 There were snacks.
 Roxy annoyed her boyfriend, Jake.
 Bella grazed.
And Roxy found a smelly, dead fish to roll in.
All too soon,  we headed home for B&B (Baths and bones.)
A very satisfying Saturday.

  3. Roxy just cracked us up in the last picture... hahahahaha something fishy is always great to end the day. Great great to be out in the open and with your friends too. Bath with bones is a great idea... mebbe someone here should adopt this idea.

  5. Bet that was a lot of fun, well, except for the bath. We have never had a chance to roll in a smelly fish, but that sounds like heaven to us.

  12. Oh, Bellla - that picture of you grazing could be me grazing (if you were a slightly more salt and pepper colour) - I also love lying in the grass, sampling what's on offer.

  15. Every time you get the best smells on you, you have to get a bath.

  18. Your river looks lovely - shame about your sniffing area. Bella - I have a special surprise lined up for you in my mum's photo scavenger hunt this month. Keep a watch out in the next day or so. She is doing some finishing touches.
