It’s been a lovely half term, with lots of the doggies on their holidays it’s been a real treat to have a bit more time so we managed a trip up to Druridge Bay. The weather was cold and cloudy, a very crisp autumnal feel and we had a few spots of rain… this led to the added bonus of having a deserted beach once we got away from the tourists around the car park area… bliss! The doggies had lots and lots of space to really stretch their legs… a perfect trip the beach.
More beachy fun this week in an attempt to escape the epic amounts of mud. Lots of loveliness, with fun, playing and chasing and enough room to really stretch their legs.
Poor little Oscar however has been kept on the lead as he is a beach comber who will literally eat anything and everything he finds and we are trying to keep his mouth clean after having his teeth out. Usually he has free run of the beach and I think he was sulking, just a little bit 😦
At last… after at least a solid week of rain, murk, gloom , mud and unseasonably mild weather, the sun eventually came out today. By the time of my third walk the sky was blue, the sun shining – it was just lovely.
I grew up right by the sea, a minutes walk from the beach and I miss it. I miss the happy memories I have of my first dog Poppy, when she was a pup and as she grew up. I miss the summer holidays, walking Poppy for a couple of miles down the long sandy beach to visit my Gran. I miss you Poppy, I miss you Gran. I think that’s why I like the beach so much, so many memories. No doubt we will be back to the beach very soon, it’s a very special place for me.
