Friday 2nd May 2014
It was a bit of a grey day today. I didn’t expect Jez to come with us, so was taking Max down to the beach at Hamworthy. At the last minute, though, Jez decided she wanted to come too. I was going to change where we went, but realised that I could keep the walk fairly short for Jez by cutting out the cliff path and just walking to the far side of the lake. Max doesn’t get quite so much exercise, but he tires himself out chasing his cone in the sea and having a swim in the lake, so it was a bit of a win-win.
At least this week the clouds weren’t quite so black.
In addition to the occasional yacht in the harbour, the windsurfing school was out on the water this week.
Round by the lake Jez gets all nosy…
…while Max waits patiently for me to throw his cones again.
And here’s a photo of Jez sitting nicely for me in the hope that she’ll get a treat.
After the lake we went back down to the beach, where Jez spent quite a while with her nose up against the fence of the marine base. Someone had taken their dogs out on the other side and she could see them playing and desperately wanted to join in. Fortunately she can’t get through the fence. In the end she gave up and just lay on the beach, but they still caught her attention from time to time.
When we walked back to the car there were a lot of black headed gulls hanging around after scraps of food. One of them was posing nicely on the bin put out for the fishermen to put old bits of fishing line in.
Fortunately the dogs decided not to chase the seagulls today.

The apple blossom was looking lovely in the sun at Upton Country Park.
