We set off this afternoon around 1.30, walking up along the flats and then the prom towards town.
The wind was picking up but as it was behind us, we didn’t get sand blown in our faces.
We noticed something on the shoreline and went down to investigate.
It was moving and as we thought, a seal pup.
Typically I didn’t have the camera and the one on my phone is crappy, but I tried:
Please be assured it was not dead, just lying on its side facing the sky. We kept our distance and Hubby walked round the back of it, discovering it to be a young female.
There were no injuries and she was quite alert, raising her head and tail fully aware of what was around her. We think she was just taking a breather as they do here.
This little baby was at the seal sanctuary three years ago and wasn’t very old.
This is Mum.
We walked back to the prom and the wind was bitter, so we were glad we’d wrapped up in scarves, hats, gloves and our yellows as they really do keep out the wind.
We were out over an hour again and we have walked into town practically every day this week. It’s getting easier, so we’re feeling the benefits. Just got to find another kind of pup to join us. Still looking.
I do hope you get a little pup soon 💜
So do we Willow.
My friend saintvi is looking for a tiny dog (she had a shoulder replacement and wants a dog under 10 pounds). Thought she had found one online that turned out to be a scam! She was so disappointed. I’ve still got my fingers crossed that you find your pup soon!
Oh, I am so sorry about your friend’s experience. I hope she can find one soon.
We have read a lot about on-line matchings and rescues from abroad. One lady we met up with had a beautiful collie pup and I asked where she’d got her from. She said Romania, but it wasn’t the dog they saw or expected, and the guy turned up with this one…… take it or leave it! Lovely pup though.
We may have the chance of a new pup in the next few months. Everything crossed at the moment.
