We go to Delph Woods on a hot Sunday

Sunday 5th June 2016

Today was hot. There was no doubt about it. Even this blackbird took the opportunity to have a bit of a sun bath.

It was also a bank holiday week-end, which meant places like the river and the beach were going to be crowded. So, despite the fact they had been there with Chris is the morning, I took the dogs to Delph Woods in the afternoon. For one thing, there is lots of shade there.

For another, there is lots of water for them to cool down, which is precisely what Jez is doing here.

Of course, Max went in the water too, but he just wanted me to throw his cones for him.

After the dogs had cooled down in the lake we walked to the Scout Field and sat down. We’d only been there a few minutes when our friend Judy came along with Jasper, the lurcher.

Here’s another photo of Jasper.

We sat in the shade talking for ages, while I threw the ball for Max.

Who duly bought it back.

Meanwhile Jez posed nicely for me.

And then, when we decided we’d been there for quite a long time, we walked back to the car with Judy and Jasper. A lazy, but very pleasant afternoon.

A year ago today

I think I made a mistake yesterday and post a photo from a year ago today (Lychett Bay). So today I will post from 2 years ago today again, when Jez and I were staying with my Dad and took a little trip out to Keyhaven in Hampshire.
