Columbus Day Walk

Who know's the rhyme "in 1492 Coumbus sailed the ocean blue?" Who's off work on this patriodic Monday October 14th for Columbus Day? I am. I don't get a weekday off often but when I do I want to take full advantage. This is my oppurtunity to host a weekday event. Come join Mystic & I for a walk thanking President Franklin D Roosevelt for declaring the second Monday of Ocotber a major holiday. We will explore Point Isabel together.

Point Isabel is HUGE! Tons of space for our puppies to run free with no leashes but to meet up with other dogs along the way! This is a Regional Park and has plenty of poop bags and garbage cans. Can’t beat the free parking! I’ve never been but the participants from the last meetup event here enjoyed it. We can pick and choose our path; an easy walk on the pavement/trail or a moderate walk through the fields. If we go for the fields there are some hills but spread out, and not too bad for that fact. The entire loop is about 2miles. Bring water because on the other side of the loop there isn’t water available. As well, bring towels if your dog is a swimmer. There's a Levee in between either side of the trail. There are restrooms at both ends on the side with the Cafe, at the far end there's a hose and water dish for the pups, and at the other near Cafe Mud Puppies, they leave out buckets of water, and there is a water fountain for both humans/pupps near the restrooms. Finally… bring $$ (Cash no limit or Credit/Debit $10 minimum) for lunch if you’d like to join Mystic & I for a late lunch. I'm not sure what's on the menu but you can look up Mud Puppies Cafe up online. Any questions contact Trisha! Can’t wait to see you there!
