Monday 2nd June 2014
The weather wasn’t great today (it has been overcast and not particularly warm), but the nurse and the physiotherapist both came in the morning giving Dad and I the afternoon free. So to get him out we drove down to Mudeford Quay and parked. It’s only about 5 minutes drive from here but I thought some fresh air and a change of scenery would do him good. Jez was happy to, sniffing around the lobster pots.
Mudeford is a small fishing harbour, as well a big leisure harbour, and there is lots of fishing equipment laid around on the Quay.
Here’s one of the fishing boats that has just returned and is mooring up.
A little bit later on a gentleman was buying a couple of dogfish (cat sharks) from the skipper.
There are one or two old cottages on the Quay.
As well as a fairly large lifeboat station…
… which has a bright, new, shiny sign.
Dad got out of the car after a little while and walked to the fish stall and back to buy a crab for his sister, and after that Jez and I went for a stroll, which gave her the opportunity for a quick paddle.
We stayed there about an hour (any more and the cost of parking becomes exorbitant) and then went home, where Jez made herself comfortable.
It’s a hard life, being a dog!
A year ago today
We went for a walk around Creekmoor Ponds, where Max found himself a big stick.
