Drive in the country to unwind

Double click to enlarge!

Well I decided to take a drive in the country to unwind and relax my mind..

I took one of my dogs (Toby) and just drove off near our wine country here.. drove up hwy 46 and explored one of the roads off was just a few min away from my house...and it felt wonderful...there was a cool breeze in the air...I lowered the windows and pulled over on this isolated road and took some pictures...

I took my quiet boy Toby with me...he has calm energy when we go out and he is my going out to meditate and think dog...( if I took Jujube my Jack Russell to the country I would have to end the drive with a valium..) Here is what I saw..and it made me feel soooo much better being there..I kept thinking.. the earth is so full of beauty...! enjoy and have a great day!

Oh Marlene, I wish I could go there this morning. It looks so peaceful and restful in this wacky fast paced world. Your dog sounds like a dream. I only have a cat, and she is getting better, a little more calm. But she is so loving and thats what counts.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Looks like the perfect little road to relax. I liked your take on which dog went with you. Hmmm I've been thinking about a Jack Russell, but I also like dogs to be calm. Hmmmm

these tree-lined meandering paths remind me so much of louisiana - a place for which i am in a constant state of "homesickness" - beautiful shots - so tranquil - lovely - jenean

Oh that's so funny!!! Oscar (my doxie) is my calm, meditative dog and the Jack Russell' pegged it completely...Your Toby is a gorgeous boy (so's JuJube, of course!) -- I've always wanted a Heeler....some day...far away...!!

I'm glad I stopped by, you have a lovely blog!!

PS. I'll let you in on a secret...I think Emma is going to stay...:)
