Evening Walk - Skunks and Sleeping

Tonight I took my typical evening walk with Stevie the dog. I also included Elizabeth in the child backpack. It is nowhere near as comfortable as my regular backpack. However it is a pleasure to have her along.

Elizabeth enjoys watching the dog walk as well as watching the landscape from a different perspective. Tonight we saw a pair of skunks. Stevie was particularly interested in the two skunks. We decided to stalk the skunks as best a man, a dog and a young child could. We moved toward their location and stayed at a safe distance of 20 to 30 yards. They meandered past the car on the other side of the street and down the block. Elizabeth pointed and gave her best description of stinky. At least that is my story of what she did.

We continued on our walk and were into our second mile when I noticed my messenger was getting quiet. Then there was a bump, bump, and another bump as I walked with my quick stride. I thought to myself that sounds like someone’s head against the backpack. I had to resort to taking another picture of my passenger to determine her status. Sure enough, Elizabeth was a sleep.

I needed to shorten and smooth my stride out. She slept all the way home where I took of the backpack and she continued to nap there.
