Memorial Day Hiking

Happy Memorial Day efurrybuddy!  Betcha didn't know that before my time my mom used to ride in Rolling Thunder to Washington D.C. on a HARLEY to The Wall to honor the fallen soldiers.  She did not drive, she was a passenger, on the back seat.  Oh, yikes, was I supposed to tell that mom used to be a biker babe, BOL?  Well, that was in the olden days, now we go hiking.
I could not stand closer to the sign coz the ground was all swampy from all the rains we had.
I do not need any Mutt Mitts (coz I is not going to poo) but I is just checking pee-mail.
This do be the Devil's Half Acre Boulders.
Still more Devil's Half Acre Boulders.
Ahhhh, cooling off my furs in Roaring Rock Creek.
What a huge pile o' rawks.
This fence in the middle of the woods do look brokened.
There was lots of boardwalks coz it be furry muddy but they did not work...
.... see?
I see a pond...
... and I be just in time fur the Memorial Day Pawrade!
There was pawrade musics:  ♫ HONK ♫ HONK ♫ HONK ♫ HONK ♫
Oops.
Mr. Turtle was in the pawrade, too.
And I is pritty sure the deer would has been in the pawrade too but I think they got lost and was in somebuddy's front yard.  They look confuzzled, no?
I went to clean my furs off at the other side of the pond so I would not disrupt the pawrade.

Wonderful hike and two times in the water. Good planning... I think we don't like the water much cuz we are kitties, but you were made for it... It always cools us off to see you go in.

Thanks for a great hike.

pawhugs, Max

A biker Babe? Ugh oh, good thing you came along and calmed her down! Although you might need a skull and crossbone collar to go with your mom's rep of being in a biker gang! ;)

That's a lot of critters on parade, but I guess it's not a true event until you have a streaker! :)

Mr. Pip said...

OK, so that was quite an opener to your post - your mom was a biker girl!

Looks like all our furry friends were out celebrating the holiday. I love that turtle picture!!!

Your pal, Pip
