Day 97 – Swimming with Dragons

We went for a swim today after coming back from a play at the park with the dogs. It’s about 38 degrees here today, so swimming is almost the only outdoor activity that is bearable in this heat. For my American friends and family, 38 celcius is 100 farenheit.

While we were swimming, Jake was water dragon hunting. He has this uncanny ability to sniff them out. He ended up treeing this poor water dragon not long after we got into the pool. Jake then decided it was too hot to sit and wait for the water dragon to fall or climb down, so he puttered off, in search of shade. In the meantime, Tuck had sauntered outside and decided to join in the fun. Unfortunately for that water dragon, Tuck the Cat can climb trees AND happens to have a really good sniffer for dragons as well. Tuck was immediately on the trail. Thankfully, the water dragon was very aware of Tuck’s presence and quickly scurried out of the tree and ran on his two back legs, straight into the pool with us. We were very relieved and didn’t mind sharing the pool with him at all. He sat on the bottom of the pool for the rest of our swim.

I used the Pentax W90 to take this pic. It’s a water proof, dust proof and shock proof (can be dropped from so many feet without damage) point and shoot that we bought last year. Unfortunately I had played with it when some friends were over for a swim last month and didn’t charge the battery after. This was the one and only shot I got before the battery completely died.

  1. Awesome pic, Biggin. Zac and I read your blog out loud and then he demonstrated how the dragon was laying on the bottom of the pool by mimicing its pose on the living room floor…lol

    Glad you all are home safe!
