Sands of Time

Hubby and I walked home along the shoreline this morning.
The tide was still going out and the sand under our feet solid and flat.
The rippled indentations and gullies were flowing at various speeds, with gulls and small waders running from side to side in front of us scavenging for bugs we couldn’t see.
The waves were ribbons of bubbling water trying to tease our boot clad toes, but with each roll, tiny footprints were erased and everything was cleansed.

A black labrador came bounding towards me, presenting his ball for me to throw. His owner said I was honoured, and I remembered early days of Maggie as a pup retrieving balls but never giving them up to be thrown again. Happy memories too of a day two years ago when two youngsters let the old lady play. You can read that here

We were out for over two hours this morning, but it was such a glorious day and a lot of people were taking full advantage of the sunshine. I had puppy fixes of all descriptions, including a huge shaggy GSD of 6 years of age and a cutie of six months which his owners called a Bonsai German Shepherd as he was a black and tan chihuahua.Β  We call all little dogs here Under Training Rottweilers.
I didn’t take the camera after all, so the pictures in this post were all taken some time ago, but you get the idea of how far we were from the prom.

 

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.
