I do like a long winter walk. Maybe you would not expect me to like cold weather because I most like it hot and sunny. But walking in the winter gives a different joy, especially when everything is crisp and clear. Icy cold frozen grass that tickles my feet, strong air to fill my lungs.
And as long as I am running, I am not cold.
I wish you all a nice winter, with lots of walks!
I just returned from a weekend camping with M. It was great! We camped in the middle of the woods:
We made some nice long walks, the countryside is awesome:
It is still winter here, you know, and we had all sorts of weather. A cold wind, there was snow and hail and fierce sunshine:
It was kind of cold, but we don’t mind that. Ha! We are tough cookies. And we have a heater in the van. In the evening I slept in the cosy warmth and M ate hot soup made of peas – very Dutch soup, that is:
The next day we made another long walk. We encountered some rather strange animals:
I had a great weekend. I love camping! I hope you had an awesome weekend too.
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.
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!
I love to walk. Of course I do, I am a dog! All dogs like to walk, even the ones with the stubby legs. Although they maybe prefer a leisurely stroll through the park, not a long hike in the mountains.
Anyway, we do a lot of walking, me and my humans. We go to the beach and dune forest every day and sometimes we go to a very different landscape and do some hiking there. Like we did last summer. It was awesome!
We walked high above the beautiful ocean. And in mysterious forests.
M said she sensed elves and imps. I don’t know about that, but I did smell rabbits and foxes. Even better!
There were truly magnificent paths. We walked for hours and hours. With an occasional rest, of course.
We encountered some strange objects, too.
It was wonderful. We had a great time!
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:
Did I tell you our new home is next to the beach? We already went to the beach a lot, but now we go there all the time. I love it!
