Beach Walk 20th August

Maggie wasn’t well in the night and got me up at 4am. She was as tidy as she could be, so after letting her outside, I cleared up, threw on some clothes and opened the back gate. She did a big wee, had a sniff around but thankfully wasn’t eating grass or retching, so we went back to bed.
I was awake again just before 7, hoping for an extra hour, but she wasn’t having it so I got up. Hubby was already up and had his breakfast, so he hoovered while I put the washing on and got mine.
Nice we share the chores.

Around 10, Maggie started to pester. She is so set in her habits and routine, you can almost set your watch by her.  It was a lovely morning, so we decided to walk along the beach.
It was relatively quiet, though some people were having a dip {{(shiver!)}} and there were quite a few dogs about.
There was some sort of rig on the horizon, but sadly the camera on my phone couldn’t pick it out.

Even when we were walking along the shore, it was just a blob, but our trusty post came out OK!

Looking it up on the internet, we think it was the Pacific Orca and installation of the additional wind turbines off the coast here.

We did see some jelly fish and I find it amazing that something like this is actually a living creature.
The size of £2 coin, Hubby says they will be the size of dinner plates in a few weeks. It will be a while then before they grow to this, that is if they are of the same species.

These pictures were taken in June 2015 at Hamworthy in Poole

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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
