Walks With Benji

It’s the winter here and days are becoming colder. We have had sunny weather so this makes our walks very pleasant.

If you remember a few months back I was unwell and unable to walk far – at a slow pace – but now my knee is completely pain – free. I have been given a new lease of life and able to enjoy again.

Benji’s walks are no exception. Mind its him that’s slow!!! The edges of the the roads and country paths offer him so much – doesn’t want to miss an interesting smell. Whilst he stops I do too and take the opportunity to study what’s around at my level. Dogs are so near to the ground, so that is where they explore.

I hope over time to share with you  the photos on our walks.

My closet place is a place called Eagles-bush. This is a Valley with trees and  a stream that gurgles its way over small and large stones on its way to the River Neath.

The sun shone, birds sang, the stream gurgled on both days.

    I am so happy to hear that you are pain free again Mary. You and Benji will both enjoy the walks more this way. 🙂

    What a lovely walk, Benji! I am glad you can take it at the pace your mom needs you to. Mom and I went super slow when she needed knee surgery and used a cane. Now I can barely keep up with her! There’s nothing better than a new lease on life – and a nice long walk! Enjoy!

    Love and licks,
