Two swans command Sophie's attention this morning. Our walk by the river comes to a complete halt while she watches them swim by. For a moment I wonder if she's going to charge into the water but she accepts their presence with equanimity. Her attention is diverted by the arrival of a friendly mutt with a red collar.
On our way home we stop off at the frozen food store. That early rising dog owners 'first customer in' thing . Angus picks up four large bags of garden peas to last through lockdown. He also makes one of two spur of the moment purchases . Whoever knew that Pinata Cakes were a thing ? Or, to be more precise, an American thing ?
The Old Farmers lady friend has brought a touch of glamour to his garden. Four tulips appear in his concrete trough that fronts the lane ( and The Rickety Old Farmhouse ).
Sophie spends a part of the morning perfecting her ' stare at the door and it will open ' routine. It always works .
Israel seems to be in a good place with the pandemic. Perhaps in the autumn we shall aim for a long weekend here : https://slh.com/hotels/the-american-colony-hotel
