SIL is now safely back at base.
It was wonderful to see her and catch up with the family news. With her latest phone gadget she was able to connect to Bro and we could see each other over the miles. Lovely!
This morning after breakfast (I’d walked the dog at 7am), we walked up into town via the park. Everything is getting ready for the holiday season, the boats and paddlers are out on the lake in readiness, and the amusement arcades are cranking up the volume.
We had a look in a couple of shops and SIL bought a few things, then we walked back towards the prom, getting ice cream and looking out over the water. The tide was out and it was really calm, a truly beautiful day for going to the beach.
I took this picture in June 2018.
Maggie was in her element sniffing for England off lead and no trouble when we met up with a few other dogs. She’s walked a total of about 3½ miles today and is a little stiff, so we’ve given her a half dose of metacam and she’s flaked out on the bed for the night now.
The flower beds at this end were full of hyacinths and daffodils, a blaze of colour.
This is how it looked in July last year and this is today:
We walked home along the prom, then had a cup of tea and bacon roll before she set off on her journey. Together she and Hubby had sorted out a route without using the motorways and programmed it into the GPS.
It’s been lovely and I haven’t done much on my blog today, but there’s always tomorrow.
