One final family wander for the summer. On this sultry Sunday morning it was Pohick Bay Regional Park along the Potomac River. (Pohick is Algonquian for, “The place by the water.”)
A beat-the-heat morning family (and very doggo-friendly) hike along a nearby section of the Potomac Heritage Trail.
Indeed, George Washington bred the French hounds sent to him by General Lafayette with his own black and tan hounds to create the American Foxhound. CTF is descended from those Foxhounds; hence his regal name of Clayton Theodore Foxhound III. Thus, a visit to Mt. Vernon was a must, especially because the grounds are so Foxhound-friendly!

Down by the sea, by the beautiful sea.
An exceptional outing into the rolling hills of the Old Dominion.
