Today's walk with Jo was up to High Nook Tarn


Today Jo and I waited until the weather improved to give us a sunny afternoon out.

We walked up to the delightful High Nook Tarn, returnng via Holme Woods to see the spectacular Holme Force, running well due to the recent wet weather.

We watched as Dave Allen of High Nook farm moved his sheep into this field.

Jodie seems to be struggling to keep her tongue under control !
The tarn was full to the brim and it was very soggy all around.

Not deterred, harry took full advantage of the water for a swim.

Harry always looks very slim when his coat is flattened by water !

I'm very popular all of a sudden ! The treats bag is out !
