Yesterday mom and I ventured out to the Back Bay in Newport Beach. The weather was perfect in the morning with just enough cloud cover to keep it cool, and plenty of new scents for me to investigate.
We shared the road with joggers, walkers, and cyclists. Luckily, there are three lanes for each activity, so we didn’t bump into anybody. Next visit, to avoid the crowds, we’ll arrive earlier in the morning or come during the week.
Mom forgot my treats, so I’m not going to look at her. She’s still in training: no treats, no lookie into camera.
The Back Bay is officially the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve and Ecological Reserve, and is a home for thousands of birds, many endangered. I saw some ducks, but was warned against chasing them out of the water 😦
There were many little wild flowers. Mom especially loved these white ones.
Beautiful homes overlook the bluffs. This would be a perfect place to observe wildlife while the sun is rising or setting.
We headed back to the car just as the sun started to shine through the clouds.
Overall, I’d say this was a very successful new adventure. I wouldn’t hesitate to make a return visit.
Cheers to a fabulous Sunday evening, friends!
