Roxie had sprained her leg, probably when she aggressively explodes out the sliding door on her leash to bark at phantoms in the backyard.
To help aid in her rehabilitation, I took Roxie on a a .8 mile walking trail converted from old trolley tracks.
We parked right near the historic village of Stony Creek in the parking lot on West Point Rd.
It is an awesome walk for a human and a dog to take together.
It was low tide near sunset and we got to really see the beauty of the Connecticut Shore.
My aunt’s cocker spaniel cautiously spied crabs scuttling about in the muddy estuaries.
A sandpiper was not so cautious: we were talking about his dinner!
The best part… in the future the Branford Trolley Trail will be one part of a 25 mile continuous walking path called the Shoreline Greenway Trail!
