Two walks for me this morning

Monday 27th April 2015

As usual I took Max for our Monday morning walk over Upton Heath while Jez stayed snoozing on the bed. The wind was still a bit chilly, but at least we had sunshine.

As you can see, there is lots of green about on the heath as the silver birch trees get their leaves.

I was playing with HDR photography again and used it to take this photo as we were approaching the Roman Road.

After I got home, and before I went shopping to Waitrose, I realised that Jez was wandering around the house and wondered if she wanted to go out. I put her collar and lead on her and she headed straight for the door, so she and I then spent about 30 minutes wandering around the smaller of the two lakes that comprise Creekmoor Ponds, which is the one closest to us. Jez took the opportunity to have a dunk in the water while we were there.

And once she had got out of the water I took this slightly better photo looking across the small lake.

So two walks for me, plus a trip to Waitrose, and all before lunch.

It was a bit of a grey day for our afternoon walk on Canford Heath.
