Over our blogger break we took our first visit to the jersey city reservoir. This is a park made in a former reservoir that has been closed for decades. Its so very much under constuction and the walking areas are limited because most of the park consists of the lake and a heavily wooded area that even in the middle of the city is heavily populated with birds and other wildlife. The reservoir is a popular setting for fishing and kayaking. On the day we took Norbert it was hard to see too much but you can see the potential for a really love park. If you live in the area I would encourage you to visit and support the park. I can definitely see a dog beach on the shore of the lake, its the perfect spot.
On a very sad note we were heart broken to learn that our friend Gretta from the Idaho Pug Ranch passed suddenly at a very young age.
At times like this I can think of nothing to say, but every time a someone passes I am reminded of this quote from Carl Sagan, one of my heroes.
