Today

Thanks y’all.

Getting great feedback so far. Spread the word. I’m aiming to become more popular than Count Curley Wee in the daily papers in the 1950s๐Ÿคฃ (currently being reprinted I hear).

We had a gallop on Grange beach earlier.

‘OMG THE EROSION!’

(Well, I never saw Grange Beach before but I overheard her thinking that!!)

The erosion didn’t impact on Missy & me. We were racing around the place in excitement, in glorious sunshine & in view of the Saltee Islands. I thought I was fast but Ooohh…she is like the Duracell Bunny with extra power. We had the entire place to ourselves (apart from two ladies a good way away from us, sitting on a rock smoking cigarettes -yuck- & chatting).

The waves were noisy again but today I was very brave. Herself was throwing a stick into the water for Missy to swim out to & return, so I ventured in too. But there was no sharing that stick. I got another snappy reprimand from the little she-wonder for even thinking about touching it. Every time she came ashore she chewed the stick, pulling great big lumps off at a time. Before long all that was left was a little stump so we had to abandon that for a lark!

We headed off up the beach over bright-green, seaweed-covered rocks to a clear sandy spot where the waves were quieter.

Our gallops reduced to trots & we even found a little cave. I, of course, had to try a spot of cliff climbing….well what’s a boy to do when he sees the beautiful sea-pinks of the Hook Peninsula winking & waving down at him & wafting exhilarating scents in his direction? When Missy decided to follow me up the scrag we were both called back. Spoilsport!

Naturally, I came down immediately. But Missy? Oh no! She was having none of it. So herself kept calling-

Missy (gentle tone)

Missy (high pitched tone)

Miissyy… (higher pitch)

MISSY (getting sharper)

MIISSYY (sharp bordering on a bark)

MMMMIIIISSSSYYYY (in an ‘I can’t bear to listen’ bark)

…and down she saunters.

The music theme on the way home was ‘Islands in the Stream’ by Kenny Rogers & some First Aid Kit (from the Renault Kadjar advert). We stopped for fresh fish. I whined a bit๐Ÿ™ˆ
