    I've really been working a lot lately and we had a chance to take the day and just do nothing so this is the nothing we did ;)

    My husband, the dog (Collin) and I went to Lake Conway (about 25 minutes away) .
    1) Collin can't wait to get there!
    2) Unknown water plant
    3)Water lotus getting ready to bloom. the lake is covered with them.
    4) wood in the water. Wouldn't it look cool in a tank :)
    5)Collin with his little nose sniffing everything LOL

    We had lunch in a shade by the dam. Amazing how good food tastes outside :) We all came back muddy but relaxed and happy.

    Collin is a cool dude.
    So is Angus. Carol, has Angus forgiven me for the laser pointer yet?

    Slight correct, plant is photo three is water lotus, not lily. Much harder to come by plant.

    Glad you folks had a wonderful day!!!

    Always nice to get away and do nothing.

    Cute dog - I think mine would eat him though (I have 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks ~8 mths old)

    Oh, and just a correction "Objects in the mirror are losing" - sorry I love my racing :giggle:

    Lotus and lilies have leaves that are very similar.
    Lotus are of the genus Nelumbo. Plant is Carol's picture is N. lutea, the native American species. Depending on conditions, lotus sometimes have leaves that will be above the waters surface.

    Most water lilies seen in the hobby are from the genus Nymphaea.

    I couldn't resist the pic. He was so worn out he curled up in my arms and went to sleep. Just totally limp.

    He's so spoiled you would bring him back LOL
    Angus still LOVES the laser pointer. You need to come exercise him as he's getting fat LOL

    Oh AAARRRGGHH I knew that didn't sound right! Water Lotus yep that sounds better.

    Yep it was a great day, just warm enough but not hot.
    from what I know Rhodesians are gentle and beautiful :)

    I had a simular day. Decided to take a "me" day. Went by myself and sat at the lake all day. I did pick up some great plants, driftwood, snail, and mussle for the tank. Couldn't resist.:eek:

    Yep, amazing temperemant for a large dog. (we've kept ridgies for 20 odd years now) These two are big boys though 90lbs each and still growing :shock:

    Naww, and tired worn out dogs. They're beautiful when they just go limp in your arms :D
