We continue to explore the park and head over to the Thomas Burke monument.
Looking good Viva!
This is a beautiful section of the park.
We check out one of the two small ponds.
As I was watching the ducks I noticed the bird find!
An amazing heron!
It would have been easy to miss given how statuesque and still it stood.
Here was the heron a couple days later and it's beautiful.
We move on and there are so many blooms at the park.
Viva is having a great time. By this time we've seen a number of people jogging by and walking. As I've said, we've done a lot of work around seeing people. I will tell Viva "person" which is her cue that someone is coming. Viva knows that if she sees a person and looks at me, she will get a high value food reward. I never use this verbal marker if the person has a dog with them.
A pink dogwood in bloom.
We are on our way to check out the water tower that is peaking out in this pictures.
Up the rock stairs we go
Here's a link talking about the Volunteer Park Water Tower | Free View of Seattle
We circle the tower
Time to move on and Viva sees a squirrels...
After I ask her to "wait" we go chase the squirrel.
There's a yoga class going on and Viva says "no problem with the people in weird poses!"
A cherry trees has lost most of it's blossoms.
Viva says "let's go"
We move on to the next area so stay tuned!
