This is what I would have love to have done today, paddled in some lovely cold water, but this was taken in Wales 2016 of a family on the sand, but just looking at it makes me feel a little cooler. We have had it hot again here in Norfolk, 4 days running of, 29, 31, 34, 33 degrees and with hotter weather due….. and no rain forecasted……hope not…..it will mean a hosepipe ban. One good thing is that its so warm at night, we can work out in the garden until about 10pm, so getting lots done, but not a lot of time for blogging, but it will soon reverted back to a normal English summer……maybe.
We have been away again, back up to Scotland, this time, the city of Glasgow. It was a work related visit, but this time we stayed in the city. Normally we just dash in and out, but this time we got to see a little more and we actually liked what we saw. I took a load of photos, but still have to download them and sort through…… I still haven’t finished the ones I took up on the west coast in May. Time seems to be flying past at the moment, I’m not sure how to slow it down and catch up with everything…..but a peaceful stroll along a lake, I’m sure would help.
The above photo is Canoe Lake in Southsea, which is the seaside resort of Portsmouth, on the south coast of England. I grew up very close by and whenever we are nearby, its a must for a drive along the seafront and a quick walk. This couple had the whole lake to themselves, just the swan boats to keep them company 🙂
I think Julius K9, is the name of the harness this german shepherd is wearing……..but what a great name for a dog. Anyway for the purpose of the post, I name this dog Julius. Julius I think is a security guard dog, rather than a police dog, going by his handlers uniforms. We were in Munich, Bravia last year 2016, walking towards the Oktoberfest (the beer festival) when I saw Julius sitting calmly, waiting for something to happen, so he could spring into action and the reason for the muzzle….well he would most likely…..lick you to death 🙂 So Julius is straight into my ‘Occupation Category’ as security guard dog…..with handlers.
On one of our trips to Munich, Bavaria, last year, 2016, I spied this handsome dog, I think he was a little bored, so he played to the camera, like a real pro……while his owners (well most likely only one owner) just kept chatting 🙂
