A Little Beach Trip...
Today Clive and I went on the longest walk we have ever been on. We walked from my place in The Valley across the story bridge to the beach! It doesn’t seem that long but with his little legs and the morning traffic it took us about 40 minutes. At first walking across the bridge he was fine, from experience cuddling him on my balcony at home I know that he is pretty scared of heights. On the way back though it was a completely different story, he seriously would not walk on the bridge. I struggled with him for a bit to start off with and ended up just carrying him the rest of the way because I was over trying to walk with him!
While we were on the other side of the bridge though, we went down to the water and there was a little beach. I left him off the lead and he ran straight into the water for a swim, which freaked me out a little bit because I don’t think I’ve ever see him properly swim before. We’ve been to the beach and he has paddled around but nothing to what this was. After a few minutes another dog showed up and they had a run together!! Very cute because with the rainy weather he hadn’t seen another dog in quite a while.
I love that moving to the city, Clive and I somewhat don’t have to sacrifice going to the beach
