Denise meets Daisy

On Sunday the weather was gorgeous, not too hot and a great temperature for a walk.  We decided to visit the Elizabeth Hartwell Mason Neck Wildlife Refuge in Lorton, Virginia and I will be sharing photos later when I get them organized.   There are lots of trails and we keep saying that we will have to explore them all, but our favorite is a boardwalk that takes you along the Occoquan Bay.  We saw Bald Eagles and Osprey and we were very happy about that but just as happy to meet Daisy, whom we met along the wooden path with her companion.

Daisy was a very sweet and friendly dog and you could tell just by looking at her that she wanted to say hello.  Her lady had stopped with her and was gently telling her to 'stay' so that we could pass by but Daisy was bubbling with happiness.  I could see all she wanted to do was say hello to everyone who passed by.  After I asked the nice lady if it was okay and would she mind if I petted her, I tickled Daisy's ears for a while and gave her a bit of a fuss. She was beside herself with joy.  I didn't realize Gregg had taken this photo until I got home and saw it on the computer.  I am so glad he did as it will be a nice memory of meeting Daisy.
