This morning Jez did not have a hydro-therapy appointment, so we went to Lychett Bay for our walk. I knew, based on yesterday, that it would be high tide.
Most of our time was spent walking around Turlin Moor Rec, although we did get down to the little beach by the bird hide so that Jez could cool down in the water. As you can see, she had got quite hot.
This is the area where in the past I have found lots of Cinnebar Moth caterpillars, and today was no exception. They are getting quite big now, though.
Rather than walk on down to where the boats are we cut back across to the children’s playground. It was lovely to see some beautiful wildflowers growing along the side of the road there.
The rec itself was looking quite nice in the sun with some pretty dark clouds behind it.
We were sitting near the flowers when I took that and all of a sudden we heard a man flying a model plane further over in the field. That was it: Jez was off to investigate. She took off at what she now calls a run.
We stopped and had a chat with the man when he had landed his plane and then made our way onto the rugby pitches, where I took this photo of Max.
And then it was back home and some lunch for us.

We took my cousin, Linda, over Canford Heath for a walk.
