The Rocky Road.

Sometimes in life there is a reward for choosing the more difficult route. 

On our walk yesterday evening we decided not to take our usual yellow brick road  - through the village and down to the dog beach where Sundae always has a swim -  but strike out and take the rocky road.

It's a tricky way for an oldish dog with lots of rock hopping, gullies to leap and you even have to scale a small headland. But there are many rewards for all of us: hidden coves, rock pools, gnarly bits of driftwood for the humans to collect, smelly seaweed for Sundae to rummage in. 

So, even though it was getting a bit cold and dark we pushed on... around the last corner... 

...and were rewarded with this.  

When we got home (and after a bath), Sundae was rewarded with this...

  5. Hi Kate,
    I get my upholstery done at Carlson's at Husky. He's very reasonable. He's doing a chaise and ottoman for me at the moment.
