Old Westbury Gardens Dog Day

Last month, one of Momma’s favorite places, Old Westbury Gardens, had a dog day.  It was pretty pawsome!  The park is actually a Gold Coast estate from the 1920s (think Gatsby) and they opened it up to any leashed and well-behaved dogs!  Well, we had to go.  I mean, we are both leashed and well-behaved.  Well, I am anyway.  Wanna hear something funny?  As we pulled in, one of Pop’s friends and his wife pulled in two cars behind us!  We had no idea they were going.OWG1

 We walked around for an hour with them (that’s Pops talking to them in front of the mansion) and then we went back for about another hour.

BEST DAY EVER!

    Not a coincidence. Those friends were tailing you. They got caught because they’re not very good at it.

    Oh, you’ve brought back soooo many memories for Mommy! She used to go there all the time as a little girl. When her brother got married, their wedding pictures were taken there. Mommy always said if you’re born and raised on Long Island, then you’ll ALWAYS be a Long Islander. Her little town of Sea Cliff always remains in her heart.

    What a fun, fun, fun day you all had!

    You got to tour the grounds of a Gatsby mansion ~ oh I would have loved being there. In a couple of weeks the Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum here in Cincy is having dog day. They do it once a year and I am going.
    Thanks for being a friend
