krazy koati

What is the truth, what is the faithful lasting proof?

To take the edge off leaving, we brought Columbo to the Omena Beach, where Stephen the year before had his sample of the water. We wondered what he would make of sand and water and beach grass and all that.

He made a pretty merry time of it, exploring the terrain so.

Columbo examining the bay and the very expensive homes quite out of reach.

bunny_hugger was all ready to take a picture of Columbo on the beach when he decided he had to get somewhere else. Fortunately he wasn't thrown by how a leash will sometimes get really tight and pull back on him and restrain his movements; some rabbits can't take it.

Columbo deciding there's parts of the beach area that he can totally eat, and going about that business then.

Columbo taking a good hard look at some of these rocks as places he might be slightly higher up. Might he?

He goes for it! The rare three-paws-in-the-air image of a rabbit's leaping.

And from that perch ... might he go a little higher yet? He thinks about it ...
