Slight problem this morning, the pump that exits the waste water from their shower and wash basin (don’t know why they need them) seems to not activate as it should. My bearded one has rung the engineer and awaits his return call. This caused a slight delay on my walk routine.
This was early in the morning and I got him out on his walk by 7:30. It was a lovely sunny day and quite warm. We walked around the Marina which is really beautiful, lots of grass and trees and water but most importantly – big flying creatures! Hundreds of them. There are some very large white ones and they appear to have lots of grey and quite large babies and the white ones get quite grumpy with me if I get too close to them. There are smaller ones that get quite excited when I chase them, they can run quite fast making quacking noises, they can sit on the water and tease me, then they can jump in the air when I run towards them and stay there flying about, most strange, I will catch one one day. the first picture I have included of these creatures has my long kennel in the background centre, called “Albert” .
O and I must tell you, goose poo is divine. The manufacturers are the second photo.
Anyway, just to conclude today’s adventure, the engineer man came and decided that the pump was – I can’t tell you what he said but it does not work any more. This means, for expediency that my bearded one must go and get a new one and it will be fitted tomorrow. Happily, this shopping visit to Midland Chandlers was on the way to see James and Sue and family (son ) and their new farm house under renovation. I met two new friends, Lucy and Rocky. see photo, they are apparently the English devision of my tribe Mixtamutt – they don’t look like me but are fun to play with.
They, consumed more Adnams and had supper by the river Stour at a place called the Otter. Me and my new friends sat under their table as usual.
