Water features in the rain

Living in Vancouver has us walking in the rain quite frequently. While a walk in the sun is usually preferred, Louise usually doesn't care one little bit. The only real exception to this would be if she found it to be too cold, or she had a serious case of the lazies.

If you look closely in this photo, you can see that Louise is in fact, quite wet at this point. Even so, she was careful not to fall in while posing in this local water feature. She had to hop across about 4 of these concrete pads to get to her current position.

Earlier in the walk we came across some Canada geese and their young. The parents were all hissy and protective (understandably), so we didn't get any good pictures of that. Just some blurry ones as one of the parents decided to run at us with its wings outstretched. Dang I wish that one wasn't such a blur. For the record, we were walking along a path that brought us near the geese. We weren't trying to approach them, although that's what the goose apparently thought. Louise was pretty good and did not bark at all. I think she clued in that it was a parent protecting its young so the whole situation was acceptable to her.
