|If you look closely you'll see deer tracks. This is an area of the marsh only sometimes inundated by water.|
|Near the area seen above, Ebon checking out the brackish water of the marsh. At this point, it was high tide.|
|In front of one of the many benches along the trail.|
|A set of benches where we stopped for some water. One of the loops starts just across that bridge.|
|A fallen tree in front of one of the local rivers. There's another bench right next to this spot.|
|Ebon begging for water. He likes to drink it out of a squeeze bottle and I was opening it at this point.|
We actually met nine different dogs on this trail! I rarely see so many, so it was quite interesting. Here's the list: one yellow Labradoodle, one sable Shetland sheepdog, one merle (black and tan dapple) miniature dachshund, one white and black extreme piebald Pomeranian, two English cocker spaniels (one roan and one ticked, both piebald black and white), one tricolor fifteen inch beagle, and two rat terrier mixes I think? (both ticked piebald black and white underneath). No pictures, I was too busy reminding Ebon of his manners. He was quite excited to say hello to the Labradoodle, but the smaller dogs he mostly ignored other than to politely sniff them. Quite interesting.
Last but not least, I got a really good shot of one of Ebon's rusty legs (specifically his left forepaw). This is what they look like in bright sunlight. Inside with lower light, there's only a hint of red visible. I think I'm a bit too fascinated by my dog's feet.
