Chris was poorly today, so I did two walks with the dogs. In the morning we went to Upton Country Park, but I don’t have any photos from there. In the afternoon we went to the River Stour at Cowgrove.
We walked along the path by the river, and, as we approached the little bay where we play, I was surprised by the number of swans in the river. I think I counted 11 of them.
I was a bit worried about letting the dogs in the water with all of those swans there. Max wasn’t in the least bit interested in them, though, and all he wanted to do was chase after his cone.
And Jez was a very good girl. Although she waded right out into the river she completely ignored the swans. Here she is coming back, with the swans in the background.
We continued on round the loop that forms our walk. En route I took another photo of one of the faces on the old oak tree along the stream bed, as it’s been a while since I’ve taken a photo of it.
When we got back to the playing place by the river Jez had to go in and have a lie down under the reeds.
And then we headed back to the car. We’d had a nice walk, but I’m glad I don’t have to take them out twice every day.
A year ago today
We went for a walk on Canford Heath where I was busy taking photos of fungi, like this Boletus.
