Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline
As the school gets to the end of the year, the days are increasingly stressful. After I left work today, I had the urge to go on a hike in the open space where I can see green grass and endless sky. I took a short drive to Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline in Crockett.
There were only a few cars in the parking lot when I arrived, and I didn't see anyone in sight. I felt that I had the park all to myself. It was a great feeling. I had some snack on a bench before taking Kelsey on the trail.
The view from the hill was amazing. We did eventually encounter a few people with their dogs. We all greeted each other. Some of them asked me what breed Kelsey is. One of them said that Kelsey looks like a Hovaward. I get that from time to time. I like what the man said, "It doesn't matter what she is, she is YOUR dog." Yup, that is right! I always enjoy chatting with other dog parents.
On the way back we passed by quite a few cattle. We all looked at each other. I love being outside in peaceful open space.
