A day off work — a good time to explore the drains of town. With (small) dog and (smaller) camera, of course.
I say drains, because unfortunately it’s about the closest thing you get to a creek or some kind of natural waterway in this part of town. Still, drains and water always have life of some kind, even if a tad feral.
A walk is always an exciting thing for a dog, in this case our midget mutt Pluto. The world is just full of stuff to explore. Like when we were kids. (Photos R. Ashdown)
