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.

 

Stormy skies

The weather is stormy today. We went to the beach and my ears just flew with the wind! Like in this pic – this is an old one of me and some of the Bandidos. I do not have a pic of this morning, the weather was so bad that M did not want to use the camera!

I like it when the weather is rough. It makes me feel very energetic, it is even more fun to run at the beach when the wind is blowing into my ears and fur!

By the way: I do not have pics of our new home yet. M tells me it will take some months before we move, so I won’t be able to check it out for some time. She also tells me we’ll stay in the same city and will walk the same dune-forest and beach. So my hunting grounds won’t change. Nice.

 

Exciting walk

We made an exciting walk today. It was warm and sunny, nice weather for a walk. Although I think any weather is good for a walk, it is just great to be outdoors. We went to the dunes and the beach!

I did some good running and swam to cool down. When we walked back through the dunes we encountered some wildlife! This is me, spotting it:

Okay, it was not really wildlife, but it was roaming free so I considered it wildlife. And a suitable prey.

Unfortunately the feline just stayed there, watching me. That is not supposed to happen. They ought to run, so I can chase them! So when M insisted that I walked on with her, I did. Next time I hope it will run away from me.
