I took Gail out for one of her favourite walks today, to cheer her up because she hasn't been looking as happy as usual this week. We walked along the cliffs, just south of Aberdeen.
There's something about being by the sea that always helps you get things into perspective, don't you think? So many pretty flowers too - sea thrift, orchids, campion, clover, buttercups. And I was very considerate, allowing her plenty of time to take photographs and contemplate the scenery - I'm not one of those dogs that's always in a rush to get somewhere, you know.
It was a warm day. No wind, and temperatures over 15℃ (60℉). That's almost a heat wave in Aberdeen! So we scrambled down the rocks - Gail on her backside, I wish I knew how to use the camera - to some inviting looking rock pools. I checked carefully for crabs before stepping in to cool myself down.
