Christmas Day: part 2

Hubby and I walked the dog early as I said in Part One, and we decided to walk through the park then up along the prom.
The geese were in full vocals and we soon discovered why.
In swathes of thirty to fifty they took off from the water, a mass of honking song, flapping wings and falling cascades of water in their wake. There must have been over a hundred geese in total and awesome does not begin to describe it! Sadly I wasn’t quick enough with the camera.

We saw hardly anyone until we got up on to the prom and then there were several people walking their dogs. The sun wasn’t up yet and the sky was that lovely layered mauve, pink and purple.
We saw the sun rise and I posted some of the pictures on today’s Photo Challenge Cold and Warm.
We were dressed in our yellows as it was quite chilly and I was wearing my new hat. Hubby has threatened to go out and buy me the fluorescent orange one he saw as well but I told him it would clash with my jacket. Knowing him he’d end up getting a jacket to match the hat. We were all colour co-ordinated today anyway.
I’ve had the camera 2½ years and we have finally worked out how to use the timer!

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.

    I love it, even Maggie matches.

    • Isn’t it great? Hubby stencilled DEAF n her yellow jacket as she doesn’t hear so well now. Years ago we wore black capes and Hubby made Maggie a detachable black shower cover for her jacket which we still have. I tell ya, designer clothes have nothing on us!!!
