    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Vicky, Eivor enjoyed listening to the rushing water πŸ’¦ We did not hike down the slope as there is no path there and it is still the nesting season for all the ground-nesting birds. So glad to hear you are feeling a bit better! πŸ™‚πŸ’– xxx

      1. Thank you. I’m surprised that Pear and Eivor don’t just run down the hill anyway. Tippy is not a “stay on the path” type of dog. LOL Glad you aren’t wanting to disturb the ground nesting birds. A lot of people wouldn’t even think of that.
