Yes, we’ve had yet more rain. I feel so sorry for the poor people whose homes have been flooded and for those without power. Not a nice Christmas in prospect for them. Here, it was just wet and miserable. Jez decided it was laying in bed weather, so only Max and I went over Canford Heath where there was water everywhere: Max was in his element.
This gate now leads to a small lake.
Up on the heath Max found lots of puddles. He found old ones:
And new ones.
There were gullies to stand in…
And lots of water in his normal playing spots.
Coming down the old coach road we found a new lake.
Which Max had to try out.
Some paths were pretty impassable, although if you can make it out there is a guy up the hill who must have very wet feet.
And for some paths you just needed wellington boots (or doggie paws).
As for the stream, it is pretty deep now.
I came home with one very happy dog.
In the after noon I cleaned and got ready for Christmas. Which meant putting the presents under the tree.
Time to go to bed now and dream of Santa Paws.
