Walk Thoughts 2nd June

No thoughts on an early walk today as Hubby was up first and I got a bit of a lie in.
We went up to run the engine on the boat today so it was a change of scenery.
The marina where the boat’s on brokerage is less than two hours away, and the journey was nice and straightforward thanks to our GPS lady and her guiding voice.

We arrived at 11am and popped in to have a chat with our salesman to get an update on how things were progressing, or in our case, not.
Apparently a lady was due to come and view this afternoon, and our boat ticked all of her boxes. As to whether she arrived or was interested enough to make an offer remains to be seen, or heard. Still, it is early days and the season has just started.
The engine started with no problems and I walked Maggie in their exercise field.
I did this last time we went up and they have just cut the grass. However, it’s been so dry lately, I didn’t have to worry about ‘grass shoes’.
Unlike the dog walk on the marina here which borders the water in an L shape to the basin entrance and is rife with wildlife and waterfowl, the field is away from the water and adjacent to their caravan site.
It reminded me a lot of the set up on a camp site in Looe, Cornwall, which we stayed at on several occasions in a variety of tents!

I saw no evidence of rabbits on the ground which I thought odd, and Maggie wasn’t that curious at sniffing anything out after her initial wee and subsequent poo. This is unusual, as with other dogs in the immediate vicinity, you would think she would be sniffing and urinating all over the place to make her mark.
The field is bordered by a hedgerow, but I saw no sign of blackberries or other wild fruit.

I remember many fields growing up: of those not occupied with livestock, some we camped in, some we walked through to get somewhere else and some we berry picked for Dad’s wines.
On the way home, I noticed other fields, equally empty of trees, brambles or wildlife, but a hive of activity for development housing projects.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
