#WordlessWednesday – Which Way Does The Wind Blow?

 

I thought the formations of these trees on my dog walk yesterday were amazing, and although it was such a still day, you can guess which way the wind normally blows, can’t you?

#WordlessWednesday -Wood Carving or Not?

Whilst wandering around Kielder Forest last weekend, we came across these guys, but were they carved out of trees or made of plastic?

We had to get really close to make sure.  We did a little knocking and staring, but it didn’t take us long to realise they were definitely wood carvings – So glad they weren’t plastic! Continue reading “#WordlessWednesday -Wood Carving or Not?”

Power kites are so much fun! 

Whenever Jon sees an empty beach and feels a good breeze then the kite bag comes out and the dogs get excited.  I become the photographer and the Continue reading “#WordlessWednesday”

#Throwback Thursday – A world without Trees?

Can you imagine a world without trees?  Isn’t that a terrible thought? I was thinking this while I was on one of my many walks last week. Continue reading “#Throwback Thursday – A world without Trees?”

A Pooch Surprise

Back in March I wrote a review on ‘The PoochOnezee’.  I originally wrote the blog post because I genuinely loved the product which I bought for Rosie, our Collie who loves puddles, water and mud and although I love walking Rose, the aftermath has never been much fun, having to use so many towels to dry and clean her in order to save my car and home from the splatter, so I was delighted after buying a PoochOnezee because it ‘did what it said on the tin’. It’s brilliant so I wanted to shout out about it, but I wasn’t expecting the surprise which came through the post after I wrote the review. Continue reading “A Pooch Surprise”

Mud? Who cares!

For as long as I can remember I have been around dogs.  I grew up with dogs and as soon as I left home and was able to care for one myself well, I didn’t hesitate.

Dogs have been a major part of my life and I can’t imagine my life without them.

I have spoken in previous posts about selling up to live on a boat, well the business I sold last year was a Dog Walking and Petsitting business which I set up and ran for four years and if we hadn’t made the decision to move away and live on our boat, then I’d still be there dog walking and Continue reading “Mud? Who cares!”

Mud, Sweat & Fear!

Just your average weekend away in Wales

We decided we needed to get away for a few days last weekend so we said hello to Polly, our trusty camper van, packed her up and headed off to Coed Llandegla Forest, Wales for a blast on the bikes. Continue reading “Mud, Sweat & Fear!”

It’s all happening…

Moving onto the boat is becoming reality

The whole change of lifestyle and moving onto the boat thing is moving quite rapidly now. Continue reading “It’s all happening…”

A sleepy village called Gweek

Whenever we visit Cornwall we always seem to fit in a walk over to Gweek from the farm where we stay near Helston. Continue reading “A sleepy village called Gweek”
