Clear blue skies this morning

Monday 15th February 2016

Now that our guests have gone home. Typical! Max and I took advantage of the situation by walking over to Upton Heath. Here he is at his favourite pond.

Cone time

Walking on round we met the Exmoor ponies, who seemed to be trying to avoid the mud.

The Exmoor Ponies were staying out of the mud

Max totally ignored them (he’s such a good boy now) and I was pleased when this one turned to pose for me as I went by.

We got to the big puddle at the end of that stretch of path and Max wanted me to throw his cone. He wasn’t very pleased when another little dog tried to get in on the act.

Max keeps a wary eye on the little dog in case he's trying to steal his cone

I love his expression in that shot.

I think the fact that another dog might come along and steal his cone must have been preying on his mind, as he looks pretty serious in this photo too, taken at the boardwalk.

In the icy pool

Notice the ice still on that pond. After that we walked on home via Creekmoor Ponds where the cormorant was once again on the No Swimming notice. Today it was reflected in the water.

And that was it for our walk today. I hope you have enjoyed the photos.
