Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me!
I had a lovely day. I woke up in the morning to be greeted by a big pile of presents, which has obviously piqued Jez’s interest.
As it was a lovely, sunny day, giving us at least some respite from the storms, I suggested we all went over to Studland Beach. Jez was happy…
… and enjoyed ripping up all the chunks of whelk egg cases that she found.
Max spent ages chasing the ball.
In the nice sunshine the beach was crowded.
Although I think a lot of people had taken the bus to the village of Studland and were walking back to the chain ferry to Poole, since a bit later on there were a lot less people around.
The storms had washed up lots of kelp and clusters of shells. These look like a pair of hands clawing their way out of the sand.
Here Chris and Max pose for me.
Spot the ball.
Please Sir, can I have some more.
After our walk we went to the Bankes Arms in Studland for a spot of lunch. I had sausage and chips so that I could share it with the dogs (it was way too much for me).
As I said, I had a lovely day. Well, apart from the trip to Tesco in the afternoon to get some groceries (I really do not like Tesco, but it wasn’t worth the trip to Waitrose). And then we had a Dominos pizza for dinner. Now I’ll have to exercise even more to work off all those calories!
