I'm not sure why the lake is called Rattlesnake Lake, cos I haven't seen any rattlesnakes around, but the lake is one of my favorite haunts. It is only 20 mins away from my house, and I can either do a hike of 4 miles up and down to the ledge, or walk around the lake, or swim in the cold water. There are geese and ducks to admire too, so many things to do.
Since the weather was so beautiful, Mum and Dad took me there for a stroll around the lake on Sunday. We did a leisurely walk, enjoying the sunshine and the light breeze. It was very beautiful.
I still have not yet learnt how to swim, although I am past 2yo, and I'm not ashamed of that. Many of my doggie friends my age already swim like experts, and its all my parents' fault that I don't. Mum said its just too cold to swim in WA, and Dad just haven't worked hard to try teaching me. So I make the best of it, and waddle in the water up to my neck. That's as far as I would go.
The water is crystal clear and clean. I love to wade in water. I cannot wait for spring to come, so we can resume hiking in the alpine forests again. We haven't done any snowshoeing this winter, and I sure do miss romping in snow. In summer, I love to go camping and stay in tents and explore the woods. I love being a part of nature. I hope the humans will keep it green, safe and beautiful for as long as time will lasts.
