Bailey On the Back Bay
Well, I’m happy to be back with another guest post. If you don’t remember me, my name is Bailey and I’m one of Melanie’s closest buds. I’m usually the one who accompanies her on her outdoor adventures and sometimes I get to write about it. Like today! So let’s get started, shall we?
Recently, I discovered another fabulous Southern California park – the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve. Dang! That’s quite a mouthful. Let’s just refer to it as the Back Bay from now on (makes it easier on my paws; it’s not too easy typing with these things).
And the trails come in many varieties – pave or unpaved, hill or flat, inland or by the water.
And for you humans, they also have an interpretive center.
I’m not allowed inside, but I do get to go on the roof.
That’s where I am in the very first picture.
The only bad part is this –
About every five minutes one of these flies by because apparently the bay is under the flight path of John Wayne Airport. I don’t mind it so much but these things are so dang loud that it kind of ruins the peacefulness of the surroundings. But, as they say, I guess that’s life in the big city.
