Some of us feel the need to gallop ahead.....
while others stroll leisurely,
But we all meet up in the end.
We take time to admire the scenery, stand, listen and absorb the heat of the morning. Some of us rummage in the hedgerows for delicacies or suitable toys. Any chance of throwing this stick Mum?
We run til we pant......
and then take the time to flop in the long cool, buttercuppy grass.
After about a mile we turn and decide to head for home, the day is getting hot and the littlest one tired. With a burst of enery he leads the way home, his playmate not far behind.
Something catches our attention in the undergrowth and we all stop to listen, perhaps a rabbit or a pheasant now keeping quiet and still in the hope we will move on.
Home is in sight and with a last burst of speed a couple of us race ahead knowing there is a big dish of cool water in the shade by the back door, others are thinking of coffee and a slice of buttered toast before getting back to the more pressing matters of the day.
Thank you for joining us on our walk......see you again soon perhaps!
