Being outdoors is awesome.

White walk

Last night it snowed and this morning we woke up in a whitish world. We just made a nice walk, it was very quiet. The sandy dunes had turned into white hills:

And the dune forest had turned magical:

There even was snow on the beach! I liked it.

It looks like there is more snow coming, it was pretty cloudy. We’ll see. For the next couple of hours I will be in my cosy bed, happily warm inside our house.

Nice winter walk

We made a nice winter walk. We started in a dark forest:

I like walks in general, but this one was truly awesome because it was lined with statues of me! Like this one:

And this one:

Pretty awesome, no?

For the last part of this very long walk we went to the beach. I love the beach!

We made it home just in time before dark. I do not mind the dark of course, but M does. Back home we  had a little snack and after that a really long sleep. I had a great day!

Exploring new paths

Since we moved to our new home we have been exploring all the new paths in the vicinity. We live very near the dune-forests and the beach and there are a lot of different trails and paths and roads. This is one of my favorites. It is long and narrow and smells deliciously of rabbits:

I also like the woodland paths that wind to and from the beach. There are lots of smells there too, of rabbits and foxes. I am always curious what surprises I will find around the corner.

And there is a very nice broad road to the beach. Great for running at full speed! I always have to wait for M at the end of it, she is so slow.

There is even a path on the beach. A silly thing, because on the beach you can walk anywhere. No need for a path there!  Typically human to make a beach-path:

It is made of a hard material, smooth and cool to the feet. Not bad, but I prefer the real thing:

 

Exciting encounter

We just returned from a long walk in the dunes and on the beach. It is cold outside, winter is here!

I don’t mind the cold. As long as I keep moving I am warm. So I was glad when we were on the beach, so I could run.

However, after a while I slowed my pace, because there was something very awkward moving on the beach:

It was slithering over the sand (one can hardly call that movement walking) and it was not amused to see us. It made noises and M said: “I don’t think it likes us being here.” Well, I am certain it did not like us, because I could understand what it said. I won’t repeat it here, but it was very clear. Sea creatures use some rough language!

We never met a sea creature like this before. I cautiously investigated it, from a distance – one never knows how wild creatures react and I like my dainty nose. Anyway: it smelled like salt. Fishy things. Exciting!

Beautiful day for a walk

We walk every day, of course we do! Humans have to get out at least twice a day, you know. Into the great outdoors. Or to the dog park. This week we made a lot of walks and this was the nicest one. The weather was splendid, autumn bliss.

We walked in the dunes. First we entered the dune-forest and then we went out into the open, climbing the little sandy hills:

And then, the best part of all: we were on the beach! I love the beach. There is no place more splendid.

 

Changing paths

We just got back from a walk in the dunes. We go there a lot, almost every day, and I never tire of it. It is a wonderful place, with a myriad of smells: salty water, rabbits and foxes and birds.

There are a lot of paths, big broad ones and small ones that are more like trails. The little ones seem to change all the time and I really like that. Old ones are closing and new ones are opening. We discovered a new one, just now:

Nice!
