On Thursday evening I went to Gooses Rock. That special place where Gooses and I had many wonderful adventures and created so many beautiful memories, memories that fill my heart every day. On Thursday Bert joined me. We had a wonderful time together. We spent time at Gooses rock, I talked to Bert about some of my great times there with Goose. Bert seemed to listen intently. And when I shed a few tears Bert leaped over Gooses rock nuzzled my face and licked my cheek. I think Bert understands. Then it was time to get up and hike. My favorite hikes are the ones that are off the trail. And that is what we did. There was no trail, human at least. We followed the path that many moose take below that pond. It is in part a marshy area as the moose love to nibble on the fresh tender greenery growing along the "stream". With that said following a moose trail on soggy ground is tuff going. But I LOVE it and Bert seemed to enjoy it as well. Of course it helps that there was water all along the way for Bert to frolic in. There were even points where to get through I had to crawl on my hands and knees, but again I love it and Bert is a champ like Goose was and bursting through the thick stuff. I know the music with the video may not seem to go together but I love the song (First) and it really speaks to me. I do try to live my life seeking God first above all else. And when I take hikes like this it helps me put life in perspective, keeps me grounded and focused and renews my spirit. So now I present Gooses Rock with Bert.
