Time for a swim on Canford Heath

Tuesday 27th January 2015

That’s Max I’m talking about, not me, you understand. It wasn’t a particularly nice day – grey and chilly, although once I started walking I soon warmed up. We walked to Hotchkiss Cross and up Longfleet Drive where someone has re-built the little bivouac that the children love so much. There was one a bit further into the trees last summer, and then a little while ago some anti-social person destroyed it. So here is the new one.

And here’s Max standing guard at the entrance, ready to repel all intruders.

As I said, I let Max have a swim, and here he in in the pond.

It made him a very happy dog.

On our way back to the car we met a new dog: a 7 year old Malamut. Her new owner said she was an ex-breeding bitch from central London who was loving the heath and the beach.

Meet Foxy

Her name is Foxy, and she was such a cutie.

She's certainly a Foxy lady

Hopefully we’ll bump into her again one day.

A year ago today

We went for a walk on Upton Heath, taking in the lake area, where a lot of trees had been cleared.
