Hello again and Happy New Year to you all !
In the afternoon Dad took us for a run down on Freshwater East beach. Mum didn't come out with us as she was busy doing something called a new waistcoat pattern which involved lots of sheepy stuff and some clacky needles. It was very cold on the beach - Dad said something about brass monkeys but we didn't see any. Yikes - maybe that waistcoat thing Mum's making is for us. We sincerely hope not - don't want to lose our beach cred!
We were a little bit peeved when Dad didn't take us out yesterday and then him and Mum went out in the evening and left us all alone but he's made up for it today.
Today we went down to Amroth but instead of just walking along the beach and back we went up on a path and walked over to Marros beach and then we walked back all the way on the beach. This was great as it was a really long walk and we had a lot of time to have a really good run.
Widget found this stick more or less as soon as we got out of the car. She carried it for a fair way, I was quite impressed, she did well - for an oldie !
Yee-hah, it worked !
Mum and Dad have told us that we're going to the Lake District again. This time we're going to Ambleside. I've never been there before and Widget has told me that she hasn't been there since she was a young pup. So I guess it must be a long time ago !
We're all excited and can't wait.
Widget, have you gone absolutely barking ? That stuff doesn't smell of anything. What's the point of rolling in something that has no smell ?
For for first day in the Lake District Dad has taken us up onto Red Screes. There's still snow up here and we don't see snow very often. A great walk with a bonus. Hope the rest of the week is as good !
Here we are on Wansfell showing Dad the way back to the place we are staying in. We know where we're going.
We had a walk around Wansfell to Troutbeck and then back to Ambleside via the summit. Another good walk.
Unfortunately this is the last day of our holiday and we go home tomorrow. Wish we could do this more often.
Here we are with Mum on Freshwater West beach.
At last we're back on the beach again but there are people absolutely everywhere and this strange thing behind us. How are we supposed to have a decent run with all these people about ? Mum and Dad say it's because of some bloke called Harry Potter and that after he's finished here some other bloke called Robin Hood is going to be down here on the beach. We don't think it's very funny, this is our beach !
Here I am having a run on Freshwater West beach.
I'm looking for this Robin Hood bloke because there are people everywhere. If I find him I'll see him off !!!!!
Yippee ! Here we are back in Wasdale.
The weather isn't too good but Dad has taken us out onto Irton Pike and we're about to have lunch. After lunch we're going to walk along the ridge a way before heading back to the cottage we're staying in. Not a bad way to start the holiday. If the week continues like this we'll have a great time !
Why do I have to go in the bath when I get back Dad ?
I thought it looked solid but it wasn't. Anyway I think I look quite good like this and I smell good too but Dad doesn't seem to appreciate it.
Still, it's good to get out again. The last two days have been really hot and Dad didn't take us out as he said there wasn't much water for us to drink where he went. Boo !
Great stuff ! A second walk today.
After this morning's walk on Middle Fell here we are walking along the River Esk. It is quite hot again but that's alright as there is plenty of opportunity for us to get into the river and have a swim and a drink. Here we are havig a discussion over this stick
Just when you thought it was safe to go anywhere near the water...........
Yippee ! Mum and Dad have told us we're going back to Keswick in two weeks time and we're going for 2 weeks again just like last year. We're going back to the same place that we went to last year, Baxter's Retreat, and we had a great time then so we're all excited. Hope the weather gets better though, Mum and Dad still won't go out if it's raining.
We've still got the packing list. We need Bones, Biscuits, Collars, Leads, Baskets, Food, Mixer, Toys. Better remember to take a lot, just in case.
Here we are out for a walk with our Uncle Mike this time. Uncle Mike is a Lancastrian and we can't understand a word he says either ! Why can't these people talk English properly ?
This was taken on the summit of Latrigg and it was a bit breezy. We'd walked along the old railway track to Threlkeld and then climbed up onto the summit. Another good walk
Here we are having a play with this nice stick that Widget found in this pool after our walk on Crag Hill and Causey Pike. This swimming lark is great for restoring the muscles after a long walk.
The weather wasn't too good today but at least Dad took us out instead of sitting on his backside all day.
Here we are back on Freshwater West. But what is all this funny stuff, there's tons of it and it's getting blown all over the beach !
Still never mind we had a good run as usual.
Oh no ! Mum and Dad went away for the weekend without us. As if that wasn't bad enough when they came back Mum told us that Dad had fallen over while they were away and broke a couple of ribs. Whatever, he can barely walk so we're not going to be getting out much for a while. At least it is the winter and the weather is awful. Just goes to prove what happens when we're not there to keep an eye on them. At least he's going to be at home but what a PLONKER !
