Ever since the beautiful sunrise I saw on my birthday last month, I had been wanting to attempt to see sun’s entire ascent from the Heritage Highpoint Park in Wrightsville. You may recall that by the time we made it to the top of the hill last time, the sun was already a third over the horizon. So I made the attempt again and
gave myself plenty of time got there just in the nick of time, but sadly, clouds completely blocked the sun from view. It’s behind those clouds somewhere:
I still wanted to take pictures but you can tell how blue everything looked with no sun yet. I was trying to figure out what else to photograph so I turned my attention to my dog, who I had let off his leash. He’s usually pretty cute. But then this happened:
I had literally let him off leash for one minute and he found something that can best be described as sludge to roll around in. The smell was awful. It was akin to the muddy banks of the Chesapeake, you know, that rotten sulfur smell?
Let’s get one more look at that. Yup, on the collar too.
After two baths, he still has a faint odor. My friend suggested tomato juice to get the smell out – any other suggestions?
