By 3, we were itching to be outside and the RottRover and Otto met us at the levy. But when we got to the end of the levy...there was no creek! We hiked upstream to find her. She was growing a couple of feet a minute! Soggy from the hike, our friends left us but I needed more!
I have to back up a bit and tell you Macy Blue was most hesitant to leave the porch in the rain...but came willingly when she saw I was walking around to the car. Once she saw her auntie and Otto Rotto...she hiked like a wet pro! She had a blast 'splorin' in the rain.
After our pals left, Macy and I wandered over to Dirty Creek to check on the flood. She was rather cautious with the fast moving water...which I was pleased with. We checked on the ducks and a few a homeless camps and made our way back across the valley floor to the main creek.
I was soaked to the core by this point... and my lens was covered with mist. It just felt glorious to have rain drops on my face and in my hair. Macy seemed to enjoy it too!
When we returned, the river still wasn't flowing at the end of the levy, but I could hear her coming. I hiked in the river bed until I found her, hiding behind some bamboo, already making her music.
Each time she filled a new low spot in the river with a great amount of noise and hullabaloo, Macy would run over to that spot and sniff to see what was causing such a commotion. I don't remember if Mabel ever did that when the creek was filling... she often sat and watched...waiting for a 'cuzzi hole I guess. But for Macy, it's all new and fascinating.
And there she goes!
