Dog Days

It's that time of year again...
the sweltering heat

means a big bowl of water is a treasure.
Sometimes generous restaurants offer water at their doors
for doggie customers walking the streets.

Flopping on cool concrete can be a necessity--
unless the concrete blisters from the heat of the sun.

A tongue for air conditioning,

a dog's best friend,

and a cuddle now and then gets us through these doggie days of summer.
Autumn, when are you coming?

Walking on Water

Pedestrian Bridge along the Des Moines RiverWalk, Des Moines, Iowa




Biciclyists welcome.
Night lights, directed at the sweeping architecture of the bridge, add to walking-on-water delights.
