Teatime walk

Daisy gets a walk towards the end of the afternoon, and at this time of year that's just as dusk is falling.  Most walks are fairly unmemorable - we wander up to The Green, she pees, sniffs around, we come home.

Some are memorable because it is persisting it down, or blowing a hooley, or freezing cold.  But some, like this afternoon, are memorable because for the 15 minutes or so we were outside I was treated to a couple of lovely sights.  Looking east it was a small murmuration of starlings which occasionally came close enough that I could hear the beating of wings and chattering of the couple of hundred or so birds above my head.



Looking west it was a lovely sunset.



And looking towards the pocket with biscuits, it was a darling little girl 😉   🐾  😉  🐾

  1. You could probably do that same walk ten thousand times but every once in a while, like today, there will be some simple little thing which makes it just bit different. I remember years back my partner and I went to Morecambe one Sunday, which we often did. We parked the car at the south end of the promenade and walked to Heysham and back - we were treated to a lovely sunset over the bay and he said "You know what? I've had a really nice day" Something so simple but so memorable that I've never forgotten it.

    I love the sunset photo - and of course, the one of Daisy looking expectantly at your pocket :)

  3. Beautiful sky. We keep trying to catch up with a murmuration but so far only a mini one.

    1. It helps that the murmuration happens in pretty much the same place, every day.

    1. Thank you dearie :). Trust me, no dog, not even Daisy trying to convince me she is really Lassie-rescuing-Timmy-from-a-well needs as many biscuits as Madam gets.

  7. Keeping our eyes & senses alert is rewarding, but I think you know I'm a nature lover. We had a "quick" walk yesterday morning after breakfast, as it was supposed to be a hot day,(was much milder) but half way round it poured down & we came a shorter way home & our clothes were still wet late evening. I couldn't stop laughing most of the way, as we must have looked like two drowned rats(lol). Have a great weekend & take care.
