Upton Country Park again

Friday 18th November 2016

Today is Chris’ birthday, so he had his presents and cards first thing. After that I took Max back to Upton Country Park. Jez was busy sunning herself at home, but it gave me the opportunity to walk Max through the woods and then around the back of the park.

If the woods looked good yesterday, then the Dark Age Dwelling in the trees looked even better today.

Since last week they have put a front on it.

There's a front and door on the Dark Age Dwelling now

And I rather liked the door catch.

Here’s another part of the Woodland Walk. This photo was bombed by a Labrador, but I thought the photo looked far better with him in it than the photo I took without him.

We walked on around to the stream and Max stood in it, ever hopeful that I’d throw something for him.

But his legs aren’t good at the moment so there were no cones today. Here he is again by the stream which has been swollen by the very high tide.

And finally for today: Max on the boardwalk.

The walk had been a little bit chilly but at least we’d had sunshine.

A year ago today

We went for a walk on Upton Heath and met this beautiful, 13 week old whippet called Juno.
