Bob and Sophie wake and start barking at some break of day ( German ) pilgrims.
Down by the stream thousands of cabbage whites flitting in and out of the grass verges. As we approach they rise vertically into the air. As we pass they descend. Pure magic. Natures simple gift to early rising dog owners.
The lady at the fancy bakers is selling blue cakes. I don't quite catch her reason for making them. They are very blue.
On our way home the angelic duo bark at the melon pickers. Unintimidated, the melon pickers wave back.
'The font' wonders why Angus would buy blue cakes when there are so many others on offer.
Evening. Bob and Sophie's end of day comfort break. In the sky Saturn, Mars and Antares aligned. The line so straight and the planets and stars so bright it seems unnatural. I call 'the font' out and we sit, two shaggy dogs at our feet, watching. The second time in a day I'm thankful for those special things a dog owner is privileged to witness.
This is useful in working out what's going on in the night sky above you - http://www.stellarium.org/en_GB/
