Mimi's First Beach Walk


Yesterday was the most beautiful Spring day here so Mr Armchair and I thought we would take Mimi down for her beach walk whilst JoJo was at Respite Care for a few hours and I hadn't been anywhere due to having this violent cough still

Above is her first step into a rock pool and below her first 'taste' of sea water



With Mr Armchair here



There was a new Memorial Bench here back on the grass and we took a little walk up to it


and this was the view from it......
A lovely Dedication Spot
We even talked about perhaps doing a bench also as people do really appreciate sitting on them and just looking......thinking

I've missed a singing lesson due to this bug and I hope I can get back to it this week but somehow I don't think so

I've been doing a little stitching also
I have read a book The Golden Earrings by Australian Authoress Belinda Alexandra
which I thoroughly enjoyed...

Now it's off to a new week and I'll see if I can't shake the cough off this week!!!

Have a great week.......Dzintra

What a gorgeous day at the beach. Mimi is such a beautiful looking dog ( mind you, I am a lab fan!)

Looks like a lovely part of the world Dzintra. I think I'm finally over my cough but it was a pain in the neck literally. Hopefully you'll be over it soon.

Keep silent, drink your tea, get your rest, and HUG MIMI! teehehehehehehheehh

SHE IS SOOOOOOOOOOO ADORABLE. Yellow labradors are my favorite, and I bet she made you giggle or even laugh as she took her first steps onto the shore. Now that would have made me cough and cough, non-stop!

My dear one, praying you get well SOON so you can continue your singing!!! HUGS, Anita

My old Nan would say, a beach walk is just what you need to blow away the germs!
I enjoyed seeing Mimi, what a beautiful young dog she is growing up to be.

That's what I need, a beach walk. The next best thing is going along on yours, thanks, beautiful pictures. Mimi is adorable!

Mimi is going to love her walks on that beautiful beach. I think chairs in memory of someone is the loveliest thing. Take care Dzintra, I hope your cough goes away so you can start singing again.
