Another very hot day

Friday 13th June 2013

It was another really hot day again today, and Jez didn’t want to go out at all, even though I offered to take her for a walk in the afternoon. So I had a lazy day and took her out in the evening instead. We went back to Steamer Point and Highcliffe beach, and started off by walking through Steamer Point Nature Reserve, where I saw this little Dunnock

This little dunnock was singing away

Further along I found an interesting old tree stump, which looks as though it’s got a face.

We walked along to Highcliffe Castle and then walked down the zig zag to the beach. This was looking east (please excuse my shadow in some of these photos).

And this was looking west.

Jez soon found another dog to play with.

They had a good run around.

Which left me with a very excited…

… and happy little dog.

Here she is running out of the sea.

We walked along to Steamer Point where I took this shot looking back towards Highcliffe.

And after that we made our way back to the car. Given how hot it has been today it was a good choice of time and location for a walk.

I took Jez and Max to Canford Heath, where they found part of a deer leg which they were both vying for. But rather than share that photo with you I thought you’d prefer this bee on one of my geraniums.
