DMV and the Dog Park

A Paulownia (Empress Tree) in full bloom
We took on a chore today that we had been putting off way too long, registering the trailer for the boat we bought last winter. The problem was the boat and trailer had never been registered in Maryland, and had never been required to be titled in Florida. But armed with a little knowledge and an iPad to look up random facts (length and weight, for example), we went over to the Loveville DMV, and managed to make our way past the bureaucracy and get it made legal.

On the way back, we stopped in at the Grays Road Dog Park. The weather has been gray and wet recently, and today was no exception. Not the most photogenic day, but I chased a couple of butterflies down while Skye. On the right is a female Spicebush Swallowtail who was visiting the abundant Dandelions.

In the absence of other dogs, Skye ran around a little, enough to work up a decent pant, and then laid down in the grass.
A Common Buckeye took an opportunity to suck some moisture out of the damp ground, and was surprisingly patient while I took photos.
