A walk on Christmas

&

Todd and I took the pups for a hike around Governor’s Island on the northshore of the lake.  Teiko saw the open water and looked for a stick immediately.  The water is pretty frigid – but heck, he’s never been able to swim this late into winter.  

Here he comes in from the water.  I could tell after a couple of fetches that the cold water had numbed his hips.  Not sure if that was a good thing or not – but we continued on our hike. 

Because the ground is actually frozen, we got to walk through the cat-tail marsh – it was beautiful. 
Even Cita got into the thick of things when we hiked down one of the cliffs to get to the shoreline.  
What a nice way to spend Christmas seeing the open water of Lake Mendota, the Madison skyline and walking with loved ones.
