Well ... maybe "bracing" is the better description after all!
The dogs certainly appeared to enjoy themselves.
Eliot's long hair catches the wind and in the second photograph it appears as if Angel is making some kind of comment on the "bad hair" look.
Walking along the beach with both dogs was an interesting challenge, especially when they wanted to investigate smells in two different directions! It was only on the promenade that they were content to amble along together, stopping at every bin to see what dog had been there ahead of them.
Right ... time to tend the fire, find a good book and enjoy the next hour or two of relaxation ... tomorrow looks like a busy day!
