Oh Aunties today was family day and mommy and me planned a trip to a little town called Occoquan, I can't Wait to tell you all about it!!
heres the sign that tells you some bout it! It's an old town from the 1700s, you know how I looove history, the best old smells in the world!
This way Aunties!
it's really only one Main Street, no lights or nuthin! And brick sidewalks, very nice on my paws!!
This is the Main Street, but they didn't call it that probably cuz of the mill! Anyway lots of old places, but see the sign says there was a big fire and lots of the places aren't here no more.
But what's here has some Great sniffs and lots of places hidden down small walk areas!
Ooh an looky at this Aunties- mom an me thought this was something else-they used this rock to help us ladies outta the buggies back then!
But I Really wanna tell ya bout the smells round here, they're Great guys! I wanted to spend a lot more time checking out the history of this tree but we gotta move on!
Check out this old mansion, I wanna go up there and check out the sniffs but lots of guys are working round it...
So we'll check out this guy instead! They used this bunker to store carbine, they used that for the lights back then!
The next few pics tell ya bout the history, if you wanna read bout it.. if not just move on to the next pics of Me, they're waaay more interesting anyway!
Hey looky guys, I seen Lots of doggies down here today but here's one like Me! I ran over to meet him but ooh he doesn't have real good manners, he kinda scared me.. but his mommy says he's still a puppy that's why he's all bouncy!
Oh Aunties the lady here at the museum was soooo nice, she let me come in with mommy and daddy so I could see the museum too! It was very nice with Lots of history that mommy an me read- daddy got us a couple of books too so we can read more!
We're coming up to water area now Aunties. Cato I know, as a hunter, you're gonna be interested in this and following the water for the game! This town is on the Occoquan river, which then flows into the Potomac river, which then goes into the Atlantic Ocean. So yeah the birds you hunt, when they run and get away, which I Know isn't often , they just go cross that Ocean and maybe, just maybe come here! We saw Lots of eagles, and geese and all kinds of other birds today- you woulda loved hunting them!
Heres the bridge they were talking bout in the history thingy above Aunties! And it's a foot bridge so we coulda walked cross it, but we didn't, maybe next time!
Instead we went down to this Great park!! And waaay at the end, where you see that black thingy, that's the dam! There was Lots of water works stuff an daddy told us how it worked, cuz he's smart like that!
All I know is it's Gorgeous out here Aunties, such a nice breeze and oooh I Love looking at that water, very pretty!
Ok Aunties- breaks over! Cuz I'm on a Mission now, come on!!
Oh first mommy wants to show you this gate, cuz she just Loved it!
Ooh Finally, here we are, at the bakery!!
This is what I'm talkin bout Aunties! A Bakery and Store just for Meee! Well mom an dad can come in so they can pay and carry my packages!
Oh Aunties I got some delightful fish treats! I just had one, yummmy!
An now for Lunch! I had a choice of 4, yup 4 restaurants that would serve me! I chose this one!!
