Thursday 18th August 2016
This morning I took Jez and Max back to the River Stour at Eye Bridge for our morning walk. It was a lovely sunny morning when we set out and the river was still and peaceful.
Jez was very reluctant to walk to the bay where we play, however. I’m not sure if she was a bit stiff and sore or whether there is some other reason for her reluctance. Eventually I managed to persuade her to walk with Max and I though.
En route to the playing place we came across the cows. There were a couple of young calves with them today, including this one enjoying a late breakfast.
Quite a few of the cows were at the fence and were eager to say hello, like this one.
Jez kept her distance today though, so there was no recurrence of her falling over and injuring herself. At the playing place I joined the dogs in the river.
Here’s Jez wading through the shallow water.
Whilst Max makes a bit more of a splash.
We met some friends there too. We know the man with the two dogs in the water (we meet on Canford Heath and Upton Heath), and we also know the lady on the left on the seat.
Although Jez didn’t go to greet them today she did keep an eye on them.
Max just wanted to chase cones though.
We spent quite a while in the water before heading back to the car. I nipped up onto Eye Bridge to take a final photo. As you can see, by this time it was starting to cloud over a bit.
A year ago today
It turns out we were at Eye Bridge, which means I got my ‘Year Ago’ yesterday wrong. So here’s a different photo from that day: of Jez standing on the weir.
