While Jez stayed in bed this morning I took Max down to Parkstone Bay for his walk. It was a nice sunny morning and I’m pleased to say that what wind there was was not quite so cold. It was definitely warmer than this shot of the pond in the Baiter makes it look.
Alongside the railway line the isolated clumps of daffodils and crocuses are in flower.
We walked along to Whitecliffe Park where I took this view across the bay…
… before taking this photo of Max showing off his new haircut again.
As ever he was happy to be back by the sea and didn’t want to stay out of the water.
He wasn’t quite as happy as this dog, though, which, back at the Baiter, was racing around in the water simply enjoying life.
Max and I walked along the length of the beach at the Baiter end of the bay as I threw his cone in the water for him. Then we headed back to the car. As is frequently the case there was a flock of geese on the grass there, but I was surprised to see that instead of the normal Canada Geese this was a flock of Brent Geese.
Poor Max, he’d had such fun in the water but, despite the fact I’d towelled him off before he got in the car, he was shivering by the time I got him home. And even his towelling coat didn’t help, so in the end I got the hairdryer out and dried him out / warmed him up with that.
A year ago today
It was a bit of a grey day for a walk at Upton Country Park.
