Summertime and the Living is Easy

Silos at Canyon Ferry – High 84 (a cold front went through last night) But up to 100 again by Saturday.  Lows are in the 60’s which does make for a good temperature for sleeping.

Before leaving Helena we took the pups in for a bath at Rods and Dogs. It’s a car wash with three bays for washing dogs. Love this place. Not sure RJ or Skitz are too impressed with it though.

On Monday, we left our Helena spot and moved 30 miles down the road to the KOA at the Silos on Canyon Ferry. We are close to Townsend, MT. We stayed here for a month last year because even though this is a KOA is is more like a fishing camp. Lots of boats everywhere. Also lots of folks live here year round or leave their RV here and come in for vacations or week-ends. So not a typical KOA.

Canyon Ferry – the sun is so bright it’s hard to get a good picture. I’ll try again sometime.

Rocky was hoping to go fishing with Jim but Jim figured the first trip out, Rocky needed to stay home. So he is driving me crazy with his whining and grumbling and pacing because Jim isn’t here. This dog is totally obsessed with Jim and cannot settle down when Jim is gone even though he’s with me and Skitz.

Four days later – Jim took Rocky out fishing and he turned out to be a good luck charm. Jim probably caught 20 walleye. Brought home enough for us to have dinner and to throw some in the freezer. RJ has a life vest and we also got him a hat to protect his eyes and nose from the sun.

Skitz and I really enjoyed our quiet, peaceful time.

  1. Wow, that's a lot of fish. Good for you Jim and it has nothing to do with Rocky Joe. He sure looks strange in his hat and life jacket.

  3. Too funny about RJ with Jim. He makes a nice fishing companion. I had a bright green life preserver for Jack. I saw, the other day, baseball caps especially ford dogs--they have holes for their ears! Nothing new here. Have a great day, Sandie. Pats and hugs to RJ and Skitz!

  10. I've seen so many dogs with outfits that we might have to do it for Buck. I wonder if dog clothes come in XXXL? So cute for Rocky. I bet Jim loves Rocky to want to go fishing with him.

  12. I bet Jim was ecstatic catching all those fish. While I didn't stay at KOA's on a regular basis, I never stayed in one that I didn't like. They are excellent in my experience, but maybe I was just lucky.

  13. Crikey Rocky ..... you've got a Dad fixation just like me, aye?? I'm not quite as bad as you though. I am happy to stay at home with Mum. You went fishing?? Oh my ...... glad you wore your life vest.

  14. Love the vest and hat! Quiet time is good too, each furbaby has their own likes. I bet that walleye will be good eating.

  16. You're a Gershwin fan, I see. ;c)

    I need to borrow Rocky Joe the next time I attempt to fish, I have a lifetime record of catching zero fish!

  17. Cute puppy pictures. Fresh walleye is probably the best eating fish.
