This weekend was an on call weekend, meaning that our regular very relaxed morning routine had gone out the window.. James was up at the crack of dawn to operate on a puppy, leaving me and Alfie to spend the morning snuggled up on the sofa, but Saturday the crisp air hit us and I just could not resist getting my wellies on and taking Alf out on an adventure!
I don’t know about you, but there is nothing I love more than a crisp frosty walk in the morning. There seems to have been a lack of frost this winter, but with the temperatures finally starting to drop it was a very pleasant surprise to wake up to. We are still very new to the village so have been sticking to our usual “well known” walk, but with the scenery so beautiful I decided to take Alf to discover the lakes – All the dog walkers have been recommending it to me, so it was about time I check it out, with the camera of course!
There really is something magical about a frosty morning, it is almost like the guarantee of a good day, with the sun rise peaking through the trees we set off to discover what the lakes have to offer! It wasn’t quite like the walks we are used to, the route was short but sweet, there were some amazing diving spots.. I am very excited to take Alf once it warms up a bit, but it was a welcome change to the muddy walks we’ve been having recently.
Alfie loved the new smells, that combined with the frost really put a spring in his step.. cue Alfie running around like a complete loon, but stopping occasionally for the odd spot of posing, I think he was embracing the fact he was a sparkling white, he just stood there with his ears blowing in the breeze. I may be biased but he’s looking quite majestic. It still amazes me just how much he enjoys having his photo taken!
Did you get much snow over the weekend? We would love to see your snowy photos!
