It is difficult to take super-macro photos while holding two dogs on leashes and a cup of coffee, but it is not impossible. Here are a few shots of the flora we saw.
Just as Coltrane loves Lulu, Mingus adores Gracie. She is a large, short-haired, black with white markings, heavily muscled, old, Heinz-57. Mingus was doing his happy dance and sniffing noses with her. She somehow turned and scared Coltrane-the-wanna-be-tough-guy, who snapped at her. She snapped at him. Cries from my baby boy ensued, and I ended up picking Coltrane up in my arms (unhurt, but scared). He was fully recovered in six seconds. Gracie and her brother dog wanted to keep walking with us, but I shooed them away in order to keep the peace.
