Canine capers at St Mary's Island

Hi folks,

We it's Tuesday again and as I did a piece on the Mariners yesterday I was bugged by not getting a close up of the sailors face due to the suns position just behind him. So back we went today with little legs to have another go.

As he was a grey/black, this was the best I could do using fill flash.

I missed this one from yesterday of the Finsborough Slipway looking at you know what.

We climbed up on top of Finsborough Down ant took this of the very brightly coloured houses on the shore line.

Down the bank we went to Basin 2 with not a boat in sight although the calm water made a great reflection.

Along the Floating Boardwalk we trotted, it was all very quiet except for Daisy saying " I want to go to Boomers for lunch"

Now I don't know if you knew, Daisy is terrified of dogs until she met Barney the Boardwalk dog and after a while gave him a stroke on his back, " Bye bye Daisy shouted down the ramp and he looked around to say bye bye.

The sun was still shining as we left the basin.

Daisy was really happy at this point and was looking forward to the swings on the way back to the car.

Getting over her inhibitions she trotted along talking to Oscar who wanted her to play with his ball.

Feeling very pleased with herself she ran for the swings.

On the final leg back to the car she was as free and easy with dogs and she gave Louis a quick stroke  and skipped along all the way back to the car.

Look said Daisy, " there's my Potty". this was laying on the beach full of wood, so we all had a laugh as we arrived back at the car.

Thanks for looking.

nite nite, luv Mike XX
