One More lake?

 

As we have been working pretty much full time since mid April..on our days off, we often try to venture out and explore somewhere that we have never been before..

This week the schedule was revamped and we only have one day off together so we made the most of it..

We packed a picnic lunch and we headed towards a park we have yet to visit..Roche Lake Provincial Park..

Fullscreen capture 12-Aug-2015 201541..about an hour and a bit from Monck Park....twelve kilometers of well-serviced gravel road..we only had to pull over once to let a logging truck pass us..

but we decided to turn around and head back to the provincial park area..IMG_0286we found a spot on the shore of the lake..IMG_0285..and set up the chairs..IMG_0288and of course, Tucker was in the lake immediately..no surprise there..

His ever growing list of bodies of water he has dipped his paws in is getting longer and longer..Roche Lake is now added to ‘his collection’

IMG_0301..his ring is never far..IMG_0290..there are some campsites along the lake too.IMG_0300..and some with a view of the lake..

IMG_0307IMG_0304IMG_0305..Doug, of course, wished that he had brought his fishing gear with him..as we watched the fish jumping!IMG_0291Tucker kept us entertained, per usual..IMG_0302his usual antics..swimming back and forth and chasing the jumping fish!

..a nice way to spend an afternoon..

IMG_0317..and for me..at least there was a ‘bathroom’..a pre requisite for these kinds of day trips!

..a ‘tired dawg is a happy dawg’!

  1. A very nice day away from your work lake to another lake seemed fitting. And I do hear from friends who fish there that Roche is a gem.
