I don’t know where the closest human playground is from here.
At first I thought it looked a little bleak for a playground, but then I saw that it was dogs only…
What’s this? It must mean that Heron Watch 2016 is on in Frisco:
Here’s the scene, on the other side of Stow Lake this year:
Passersby wonder what the fuss is about, then stop to check things out:
And here they are, some of the new babies:
I’ll tell you, I prefered the former breeding location, near the Stow Lake Boat House – you can see one parent here, what just had barfed up / regurgitated a freshly-killed gopher. Can you see which fledgling gulped it down?
Dem boids were certainly were closer to shore back in the day, easier to see.
Anyway, on it goes. They’ll fly the coop by the end of May, most likely…
But if he has his dog walking license (and all these Frisco pooches are registered, which is unlikely but whatever), then this spectacle is Nice And Legal, AFAIK.
(As you can see, at least one tourist at the Broadway Gate thought this scene was noteworthy enough.)
Have fun, pooches!
Camera left shows the Ranger and camera right shows the errant dog owner.
I’ve never seen this:
I’m assuming the dog’s unlicensed, as the vast majority of canines aren’t licensed in Frisco and I imagine the rate for non leash owning dog owners is lower still.
Don’t know if any woo woo or wee wee came out or if it was picked up.
The owner and dog sauntered away, with no threat of getting cited, it appeared.
Anyway, I’ve never seen this…
Dude was having a moment here, so I didn’t make it all the way up the hills we call Twin Peaks.
I’ll tell you, back in the day I’d see hawks and falcons patrolling the slopes of Twin Peaks. But now it’s flocks of crows / ravens? OK, but this is the first I’ve seen like this:
Anyway, after going to the parking lot and coming back, Dude was still up there:
He was having a Moment.
It must have been cold…
