Today is summer solstice. "Midsommar" in Sweden. I wanted to celebrate by sharing a lovely poem by an American Pulitzer prize winning artist and author who's parents were Swedish. He lived in North Carolina and his home is now a National museum.
This week we are thinking about and celebrating local places, local-ness, dogs, and picnics. Let me explain!
Today is Dog Appreciation Day, which is just tremendous for so many reasons. Dogs are all about living in the moment, and being entirely content exactly where they are in body, mind, and spirit.
And since Saturday is National Eat Outside Day, I think we should all spend the day outside with our pooches enjoying a picnic. There's nothing that sounds bad about that, right? Consider that aside from some well-earned downtime, there are health benefits too!!
So in the spirit of having your sumptuous picnic with your pup somewhere in the pines of Prescott, I wanted to share a list of lovely local spots for you to checkout and explore. Be sure to check first if the location you have in mind allows dogs, or requires them to be on leash.
Lets get to it!
