The Top End……
Getting away from here is difficult. There are a lot of animals and it’s not so much salubrious living either… I hadn’t got away for around 30 years but this year was different!
I managed to get a whole 10 days out and went to see a friend of mine up in Scotland… as you might know Alba said loudly, lol.
While there we went to this beautiful Loch. Its called Lochend Loch an is in the Drumpeller Country Park on the outskirts of Coatbridge in Scotland and its absolutely beautiful!
Iris has the most lovely yellow lab called Rubes and bless her she is so well behaved… So unlike mine (an yours Bosan, lol) We went there the first time and I was amazed at this huge expanse of dark water with the surrounding trees all bare and waiting for spring to bring them to life. The geese where there as were ducks, swans, moorhens and terns.
Down the back a bit away from the Loch I saw deer.. 3 of them and all so un fazed by either us or Rubes .. who actually was far more interested by her stick than she ever as the deer, lol. She had something akin to a branch by then, lol. She was so good with Alba and I am thinking of painting Lil yellow and swapping her for Rubes next tie I go up… Iris will teach her some manners lol.
Iris has also got arthritis, far worse than me actually and has to have an infusion regularly to help keep it under control so the day she went in I took Rube’s to the Loch on my own. I had to trust Rube’s knew the way which she did but as you will see she went into all the mud as well…. lol I got her to go in the Loch one more time as we left so her Mum would never know,lol.
The other day Iris took Rubes there and got some lovely pic’s of it now in bloom and all greened up so you can see it barren and beautiful. I just wanted to share them with you as it was beautiful.
Hey I am getting another break in the end of the summer and we shall go to the Loch for sure!
To start with mine in March
See what i will do to your dog if I walk them,lol.
Now the ones Iris sent me and its so differnt with greenery and flowers
and lastly… its as if the ducks are swimming in the sky
