Dog walking adventures, Housesitting in France

Down by the river

There are certain things in life during the winter months that we love indulging in. The Internet, Chocolate, comfort food, movies, sunrises/sunsets, bright icy mornings,  PJ time, lastly, but not least of all is the sun.  That remarkable big bright thing in the sky.

Its appearance was enough of an energy boost, for me to say,  “Time for a walk, Louie, and Nellie”.   Within minutes we were heading out the door. Then down by the river.

Looking back at the dodgy bridge we walked over.


Yes, sometimes on the other side of the river it is less muddy and greener!

The bare bones of trees in winter – love it ♥

Space to run and let off energy, for the dogs and for me!  The squire was enjoying some quiet time back at the house.  See those little mounds of dirt they are molehills, quite prolific in some parts of Europe/UK.

As a side note, this blog heading reminded me of Hollie Smith a New Zealander singer whose music I have enjoyed over the years, here’s a clip to listen to,

Hollie Smith – Bathe in the river

Happy listening – Bonne écoutev

  1. Yep, dad was okay, although he did have to go to hospital. In the end my mum bought a weird anti mole device that is meant to keep them away from the garden.

  2. Hi, Josy, no we don’t have moles in New Zealand, we do have rabbits that make a horrendous mess of farmland in certain areas. The moles are certainly prolific in certain areas, especially near rivers or streams? Hopefully your father is okay now!

  3. Are moles not common all over the world?
    Once my dad fell out of a tree because of moles! They had made a tunnel through his garden, and he had gone up a tree with a ladder (to pick pears) the ladder pushed through the top soil into the hole and poor dad fell down.

    I still think they’re cure though…
