This is the first time for months I have been to watch a sunset from the end of the prom past Ashmeadow. It's been too busy with visitors, it's a little too far to walk Gus now, and he struggles to get into the back of the car. Now the sunsets are so much sooner, I can nip down to the front on my own and then come home for tea and then a night walk in the woods.
We had a couple of worrying days with Gus this week, he was very off form and not eating his breakfast. C thinks he had hurt his back when I was out with him in the morning rain on Wednesday. But he's tough and I'm glad to say he's back to his usual self now. As I write this on a wet Saturday morning, we managed an early walk this morning before the rain arrived.
I'm afraid I'm still way behind as a blipper, this has been a busy week for various reasons.
