Now that the summer heat has come, we get up early and go for long walks. This was one of the longest we've had so far. Our river has lots of places to walk along, but this is our favourite. Mostly we get to run free! Firstly, we park our little car and check out the picnic area.
|Not much today.
Then we head down the cycleway to the first bridge. That's Bella in front. She's no longer frightened of the bridge.
Then we continue, taking time out to check pee-mail and chase birds of course, until we come to the second bridge. That's where OUR beach is. We usually stop right there, but this time we walked over the second bridge, up the hill and started walking along the opposite of the river.
|That's OUR beach on the opposite side (and you can see the bridge)
The river is now on our left and sports fields on our right.
Lots to sniff and look at. Then we reached Sandy Beach.......
|That's Bella, banana tail, in the front.
And had a paddle in the water. We are actually across the river from the picnic area. Then we walked ALL the way back to our car. We were very tired, and the sun was getting higher. It was a wonderful walk. We were wet and dirty. And yes, we had to have a B-A-T-H.
But then, so did the car!!!!
