Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Are flat rocks exciting enough for a Princess?


Katie here.

Flat rocks at Flat Rock Park.

I know, I know. Mama’s been using valuable space on this blog posting pictures of pretty things that are not me! It’s outrageous. I’ve demanded equal attention and since I am royalty she has agreed to let me tell you about our latest adventure.

We went to Flat Rock Park in Columbus Georgia! It was a sunny day with blue skies but it was cold! Down in the 30s and low 40s! Mama was wearing her winter coat again and a hat and gloves and a scarf. And she was still cold. I told her to suck it up. I thought the temperature was just perfect for climbing up and down rocks.

This rock could fall on me at any moment mama!

But wait! The rocks are supposed to be flat, right? So what rocks would I be climbing up and down? Well! Let me tell you! There was plenty of up and down exploring to do, and I pulled my mama right up those rocks no problem.

Waterfall, bridge, and me.

Some of the park was along a pretty little stream and there the rocks were flat.

Pretty out here in the sunshine along this little river.

And they were flat in other sections too. But right in the middle were really tall, really big chunks of rock sticking right out of the ground!

The sound of the waterfall doesn’t bother me mama!

Mama kept taking pictures of pretty stuff, mostly me, but sometimes not.

Pretty, even without me in the shot.

We walked all over! Some of it we walked more than once! And I never complained or got tired or whined, even when mama ran out of treats!!! (Though I was secretly disgusted by her poor planning.)

A little sunbathing by the river.

I don’t want to admit it, but mama wore me out this time! I’m going to have to sleep for several days just to get my energy level back up to sheltie standards. Don’t expect any news from me for awhile; I guess I’ll have to trust that mama keeps you abreast of our adventures.

Cause a sheltie princess is never far away from the next adventure. You just never know where I’ll turn up!

Looking for a treat mama!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. What a lucky Princess you are to go walking in such a beautiful place. Your mama must love you very much. 🙂


  2. Katie, what a splendid adventure, but you really must prod your mama to pack more treats. How do mamas think we Shelties can traipse all over creation without some fortification?! Love, Dallas


  3. How lucky to walk in such a beautiful park with such beautiful rocks, stream, and bridge.


  4. Well she sure made up for it. You look beautiful posing in all those pictures

  5. now that looks like the kind of place we would love to explore


  6. Does this mean your mama will get a few days of not having you beg for another adventure? Will you both be having a few days to rest up? How nice, Katie, that you are having such an adventurous winter, spending time with family and friends, and seeing more of the world.


  7. Alright, I’ve lived close to Columbus for two years and haven’t heard of Flat Rock Park… officially on my to do list!
    The Georgia park I was telling you about is Massee Camellia Gardens….still on my to do list!


  8. that is really cold for Georgia! Such pretty flat rocks and lovely park


  9. What a lovely park – perfect for wearing out an energetic Katie!
