Sunday 25th December – Saturday 31st December 2016
Christmas Day was a wet, miserable day, so Chris and I didn’t do our ‘traditional family’ walk with the dogs until Boxing Day (the 26th) when we took the dogs out to Kingston Lacy after lunch. It was pretty cold, so I made sure Jez had her nice warm jumper on. Here’s Chris with the dogs
The sun going down behind the trees.
And, yes, it’s treat time again.
The next morning was cold and frosty, and while Jez stayed snuggled in bed, Max and I went over Upton Heath.
We almost met the cows, but they passed us by.
I like this photo of one of the Exmoor Ponies with the mist lying low across the heath.
The grass around the boardwalk was frosted…
… and the water icy (not that that bothered Max).
So a pleasant but cold walk.
The next day was cold and frosty again and this time Max and I went to Upton Country Park.
I liked these leaves, covered in frost but with the sun just touching them.
The picnic tables were pretty frosty too.
The sun was low along the stream.
But Holes Bay was looking lovely in the sun.
And so on to Friday 30th December, and Max and I went over to Canford Heath where the sun was low through the trees.
It was quite misty too.
Which made for a few nice shots.
But by the time we got up onto the main heath the sun was out, although the wind was bitter.
There was lots of ice on the water though.
And finally to the last day of the walk and and a chilly, grey walk on Upton Heath with both Jez and Max.
So here’s Max signing out with his last game of cone in 2016.
And Jez waiting patiently for 2017 to arrive.
Happy New Year to you all.

Max and I saw 2015 out down on the beach at Lake Pier, Hamworthy.
