Tuesday 4th October 2016
It has been a long time since I’ve taken the dogs to Canford Heath, the reason being that Jez was taking 2 hours to walk not very far. But today she declined to join us on our walk so I took the opportunity to take Max there. It was a bit cloudy but not too cold.
There was good visibility giving a good view across Poole towards the Purbeck Hills.
I took us for a reasonably long walk, made longer by the fact that we met our friend John and his dog. As we hadn’t seen them for ages we stopped chatting for quite a while.
Eventually I circled around to the stream and then started to walk down Longfleet Drive towards Hotchkiss Cross and Steeple Close where I had parked. Along Longfleet Max got a little confused. He stood in an empty gully waiting for me to throw his cone for him. I had to explain the water had all gone.
It was looking nice and autumnal as we approached Hotchkiss Cross.
And, of course, there were lots of Sweet Chestnuts for Max to seek out.
Here he is with his prize.
After that we walked back to the car and came on home.
A year ago today
Max, Jez and I went for a walk on Upton Heath. Here’s Jez.
