An Old Closed Road Walk in the Rain

 Carquinez Scenic Road out of Martinez, California is where we head on these wet days.  By 8 a.m., this morning, it was 43 degrees and pouring.

Chloe and Bailey were waiting for their walk.  We had missed our walk yesterday because of the rain so today was not an option.  We were going out come hell or high water.

 This road has been discussed quite a few times in this blog.
(you can search Carquinez for other posts)

Today was the wettest day by far.  Our other trails, we might have walked, would have been little rivers of mud.
Nothing like a huge ocean going cargo ship cruising by as you walk in the rain.

 Not the best of times, but they still gave me my 20 smiles per hour.
They were so wet they could not get any wetter by swimming.  All in all, a good walk. 

 They now are napping quietly in front of the fire.

Hoping Penny and I can join you tomorrow, but not sure yet if we'll be able to convince the visitor we're hosting...
