The Dog!

Yesterday (14th February) was a good day for dog pictures!
I'd saved my post-Christmas break until this week when a friend from England came to stay ... so Monday and Tuesday were holiday trips!
The blogs are still working backwards from last night (RISE in the dark) to Nendrum Monastic Settlement in the late afternoon ... and, in the next blog, a few hours at Castle Espie for some birdwatching!
Anyhow ... the Eliot shots are from Nendrum on a very, very windy late afternoon.
 It looked as if Eliot was having a great time while we nosed around among the ruins.
 Whatever he found to roll in didn't smell badly this time ...
 ... and he was easily persuaded to run around for photographs ... maybe he didn't realise that it was for photographs!
 The site catches every bit of wind that comes from the Irish Sea ... you can see for miles from the top of the hill.
 Strangford Lough on the right ... the tide just beginning to come in.

 Bad hair day for Eliot ... and for the humans who were with him.

So ... for Eliot's fan club ... that was his bit of fun from Tuesday!  If and when time permits you will get a glimpse of a different experience for him on Monday!  Maybe this makes up for all the time he sits patiently in the car just waiting for me!

Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us,
o'er the world's tempestuous sea;
guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us,
for we have no help but thee;
yet possessing every blessing,
if our God our Father be.

Eliot looks like he was having great fun - the windblown look suits him!

Hope your week is fun.
