Canal and Scrubs
Another weekend day, another long walk with the dog. This time it was along the Grand Union Canal and through Wormwood Scrubs -- and I made another GoPro video! (It's been ten months since our last one, so we're long overdue.) Olga is wearing her GoPro harness and camera in the photo above. I wouldn't say she loves it, but she is very tolerant.
In the video below, you'll see me taking both that photo and this one:
Those were some odd "hood ornaments" on a boat along the canal.
So without further ado, here's the action vid of our day!
I just want you to know that I shot an hour and a half of video, which I condensed into those six minutes and 42 seconds. You're welcome. My original edit -- let's call it the "director's cut" -- was almost twice as long and included a lot more footage at the beginning and end of our walk, as well as different music and some ambient audio. But even I, Olga lover that I am, recognize that it's too much to ask most blog readers to watch 12 minutes of my dog.
Among other things, you'll see Olga chase squirrels and chase her ball (in slo mo!), and at one point snag her harness on a tree and pull it off entirely. I had to climb into a densely wooded copse to retrieve it! There's also a glimpse of the Wormwood Scrubs prison, which is next to the park, at 4:50.
