The Hound & I: Winter Photo Walk
Hope you all had a great time over Christmas and Santa brought you what you wanted. We brined a 12 lb turkey for Christmas eve dinner, and we’ve eaten most of it. The brining took some extra time and preparation but given how moist and flavourful the turkey turned out, I highly recommend it. We did a maple syrup and apple cider glaze, and stuffed it with chestnuts, dried apricot and croutons from a country style loaf. Going to make a turkey leek pie tonight for the rest of the leftovers.
Just a quick post today on a photo walk I took with Nala on a crisp and sunny winter’s morning last week. I don’t usually take my camera on our walks but the sun was out so I couldn’t resist.
The above photo is one of my favourite pictures of Nala that I’ve ever taken. It’s rare to have her standing still like that, especially at the doggie beach.
Nala has grown to be incredibly acrobatic. Now that she’s a full on teenager in doggie years, she’s full of confidence as she tackles natural obstacles, like this big log. Sometimes I have to tell her NOT to jump on every tree stump she sees, since they can be slippery with frost.
