Missy's day at the beach

The weather was perfect last weekend for a walk on the beach. As a bonus it was low tide ... and at low tide there is a sandbank that stretches out into the passage - Perfect for a nice long walk.

There was not a cloud in the sky... the night before we'd had thunderstorms but today no sign of rain.
The seagulls were out in force as well looking for snacks. People go fishing an the sandbank. I'm not sure whether anyone ever catches anything. Maybe they do.
For a old dog Missy did well keeping up with John. He strode ahead and Missy and I brought up the rear.

She didn't notice the soldier crabs. Her eyesight's not the best these days.

but the heron was having a feast
Missy's never been overly keen on swimming but she did have a little paddle in the water.

After such a big walk, it was nice to sit under the trees and have a drink of water while John went off to buy some lunch from a nearby take-away shop.
All in all - a perfect day
