Himself and I - as part of his birthday celebrations - were up in the Lake District for the weekend. We were spoilt by wall to wall sunshine and gentle autumn warmth.
Our walk today took us through the fields and woodlands down to Coniston Water. Moss could not believe her eyes when she saw so much water and as soon as she could, she was in and splashing happily.
...a certain dog paddled and splooshed to her heart's content!
I went to the edge of the jetty and just revelled in the blue-ness of the lake and the sky. Moss came too but was a little unsettled by the slight bounce that came with walking along the planks. So I sat her down and took pictures. The air felt clear and tasted crisp - definitely with a tang of autumn and earth.
I took many photos today - of which several I am delighted with - one of them is this one - the colours and the reflections sum up today beautifully.
Thank you everyone who wrote such lovely comments over the last few days (particularly for Himself's birthday and the ice cream thieving hairy woofer posts). I've replied now I am home, for some reason blogger would not let me before!
