🎶The hills are alive with the sound of barking
With woofs they have howled for a thousand years
The hills fill my heart with the sound of barking
My heart wants to howl at every woof it hears🎶
An #epicwalk™ followed by an #epicsnooze™ bringing our holiday to a close as it's back home tomorrow and a return to daily life on Monday. Even with the #weathergods being a little unhelpful we have had an amazing time. There's nothing like sitting on the top of a mountain with your water bowl and treats looking at the landscape spread out below you. It reminds us that there is peace and love in a world where so much seems to be crazy.

In honour of Boysie's @boysie_the_beardie birthday weekend we wanted to share with you the history of our much loved island.
Savary Island runs east-west, an 8-km long, 1-km wide clay ridge covered in sand – an atypical landscape which most resembles a hideaway in the south seas. An atmosphere of history pervades the place, highlighted by tales of coastal Indians using it as a principal summer meeting spot, and stories of Natives fortifying Indian Point, the western tip, against marauding bands from other tribes. Vast middens of empty clam shells have been found at various places on the island. Captain George Vancouver records in his journal for June 1792 that he sailed past an island lying in an east-west direction, “having beauty such as we have seldom enjoyed”, which he named Savary’s Island. He left no indication of who Savary was, which remains a mystery to this day. The island was occupied at that time, and for an estimated 4,500 years before that, by the Coast Salish (Sliammon ancestors) First Nations who, influenced by the shape of the island, called it Ayhus, meaning double-headed serpent. The greedy serpent is said to have been trying to reach its cave on Hurtado Point when the Transformer spotted it from the sky and changed it into this island. #shareyourwalk #walkwithboysie #savaryisland #sunshinecoastbc

If you're ever in LA you'll probably want to visit Rat Plaza, otherwise known as Fletcher Bowron Square. It's the best place for rat spotting plus there's a big sculpture called "Triforium" by Joseph L. Young which we love, but it will never feature in my instagram because I can't be trusted to sit still with all these rats taunting me! So here I am next to some fancy mid century bike racks. #walkwithboysie #I💗🐭

San Francisco L

Third Street Bridge
Rechristened Francis "Lefty" O'Doul Bridge in 1969
Third Street Over Mission Creek
The main span over the shipping channel consists of a 143 foot through riveted steel single leaf bascule truss, complete with electrically driven hoist machinery.

The Lefty O'Doul Bridge is a heel trunnion type bascule drawbridge designed and patented by the Strauss Engineering Corporation. The same architect who designed The Golden Gate Bridge.
The bridge was seen in the 1985 James Bond film A View to a Kill. And
In the 1976 Clint Eastwood movie The Enforcer. #leftyodoulbridge

💙🌴Here I am standing before the #ulele spring!
Ulele (pronounced "you-lay-lee") is located in Tampa Heights on the Tampa Riverwalk in the old Water Works building. The building was the original pump house in 1903 and served the city of Tampa water from the Ulele Spring on the property. Now the Water Works building is a wonderful restaurant that anchors the #tampariverwalk.

The spring is named after #PrincessUlele, reputed to be a Native American princess who lived in the 1500s. The Tocobaga tribe of the Tampa Bay area captured three Spaniards and sought to exact revenge for the brutal actions of explorers who had landed 11 years earlier. As the legend goes, the chief's daughter, Ulele, took pity on Ortiz and threw herself onto his body until her father agreed to spare his life.

Historians are mindful of the similarities between this tale and another famous clash of New World with old — John Smith and Pocahontas, seven decades later. Some think the British explorer Smith studied dispatches from North America including, perhaps, the story of Ulele and Ortiz, before heading to Jamestown, Va. To embellish accounts of his own adventures, Smith may have added in elements of the Florida story.

Ulele Spring is the only natural spring within the urban portion of the City. The spring didn't work as it should for nearly a century but now, after a major overhaul, freshwater flows of 672,000 gallons per day flow from the spring to the Hillsborough River. This spring water flow enhances vegetation and creates prime habitat for a variety of fish, crustaceans and mammals. To date over 18 species of fish and crustaceans have been documented within the newly restored spring run; in addition, manatees now frequently visit this spring along with their offspring.💕

Where would we be without a #windydogwednesday from the top of the world?*
More #epicwalk™ today, a "gentle" 15km enjoying the sunshine whilst it lasts. *not the actual top, just feels like it. 😉

Weather wasn't very cooperative today. #epicwalk™ was damp in places, but 25km done, and home before the worse of the rain. My @hurttacollection #slushcombatsuit is great for hikes like this, keeping the worse of the rain, drizzle and mud off my coat. #seepawsfordetails.
They have now launched a #mrsneakyorange camouflage version in North America, so we're trying to figure out how to get one here @hurttanorthamerica.

"In the presence of Nature a wild delight runs through the man in spite of real sorrow. Not the sun or the summer alone, but every hour and season yields its tribute of delight; for every hour and change corresponds to and authorizes a different state of mind, from breathless noon to grimmest midnight."

Well I'd say my life was pretty sweet after a 15km hike across #rundemanen and #fløyen. As for my hair.....

#windydogwednesday making the best use of my flowing locks.
We don't actually carry a wind machine everywhere, we just have the one called weather that follows us around. 💨💨💨💨

An #artsyfartsyfriyay from #fløyen, this is one of several pieces that have been set up in a temporary exhibition by #skansemyren #fløybanen stop. Like it when we stumble across things like this and appreciate the efforts people go to enhancing our city.

Myself and mr #billygoatsgruff have a very important public announcement we'd like to share ➡️➡️➡️
#dontfeedtheTrolls
This is one of the #fløyenguttene a gang of nine kashmire goats who help keep the vegetation in check on the steep hillsides of #fløyen, This one obviously likes a bit of #benching and to #getuponstuff so I asked if he also wanted to join IG.
