Sunsets

A couple of months ago the Word Press Photo Challenge was ‘Rise/Set‘ and it was the first photo challenge I took part in: Photo Challenge: Rise/Set. Sunsets are my favourite times of day. Since getting Kira we’ve attempted hundreds of sunset pictures with a few being really good. With the weather being so hot recently we’ve been taking our walks later […]

Just take a minute to see

“What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.” – William Henry Davies With our lives so busy it’s often easy to rush around and not see the things around us. Today we took Kira for a walk. It’s a walk we do regularly, in fact we’d walked it Friday morning. But the […]

When life gives you lemons…

But taking a dog away with you changes things; what you […]

My First Hike

This weekend we took Kira on her first hike…and ours. I haven’t been to Wales much so decided we’d visit the Brecon Beacons. Honestly, I didn’t look at what walks were in the area or anything sensible like that, simply found somewhere I’d like to stay and then looked for where we could walk afterwards. Probably not the best plan […]
