Wet Feet

We prepared for a day on the beach, this morning and exited the house. Pandemonium ensued with both dogs feeling argumentative and after much barking and jumping about, we decided to leave one dog at home and Wendell drew the short straw. We had a lovely time with Hudson but have had to return home early in order for Terry to give Wendell his turn. It may have been sunny but there was a biting wind. I don’t know how Hudson can bear to be in the freezing sea.

Cheese on toast and a mug of coffee and I feel lovely and warm again. Hudson is completely worn out and is snoring happily.

  1. Brings back memories – I recall walking at Minnis Bay in November in flip-flops back in 1986 because I had no shoes. There was also a cafe we used to visit up on the clifftop beyond the Lido, Prince’s Bay? or something like that. Dad also used to love the quirky little hotel up there with all the rooms relating to different periods of history, sometimes we’d have a ‘non-res’ afternoon tea there.

    Hiya, Sarah. Both the cafe and the hotel are still there. I just love afternoon tea in hotels. When I lived in Bath, I wrote all my Christmas cards in the Francis hotel while drinking coffee served in hot jugs. It was lovely.

    It does look cold…
    Glad you had a good time though.
    Starting to warm up here now; hopefully we will have a good patch of real summer weather. We have had so much rain…

  4. He looks like he’s having fun there.
    I love your hat and coat! Red’s my favourite colour πŸ™‚

    The Francis is a nice spot to sit, especially if you get a view of the park opposite.

    Thank you, Eileen. You are right, the Francis is a lovely. I miss Bath sometimes.

  6. Hi Pen lovely photo’s of Hudson in the Sea Brrr does look chilly. His coat must keep him warm though. I remember seeing when of these gorgous dogs down by the Canal in Bude, he was in that water and he was having such a great time in there. I took some photo’s of him owners permission of course. Cheese on toast guess that was with tomatoe ketchup,? glad you are all toasty now. Hugs Sheila and Wile-e πŸ™‚

      Hiya Sheila. That was only the second time Hudson has been in the water. He has only just found his sea legs.
      Ketchup on my cheese on toast?? Of course:>)
      I hope you and Wile-e are keeping well. See ya.

    Isn’t it great to go walking along the beach. Do you blow dry Hudson or does he shake himself dry?

Hmm I think that WP get it a bit wrong on here sometimes but what a delight and I like the way you have presented this posting Penny, it is almost like a hand of cards, now what are we playing is it Rummy or Newmarket? Actually I rarely play cards these days but years ago we used to play for copper, and it was good fun too πŸ™‚
