Today, we walked along the nature reserve route. The weather was a bit of a mix - sunny but extremely windy, which meant it wasn't warm. Both dogs like the nature reserve route. It's a lovely circular walk along by the river and through the woods before getting to the nature reserve. The dogs only need to be only the lead for a short time as it does involve crossing a major road and walking alongside another. But the amount of off lead time more than makes up for it. After the nature reserve, it's a nice walk along the old abandoned railway lines (no tracks anymore), past the boating lake and back home. It normally takes about three hours, depending on how long we spend at the nature reserve, but it was a little bit less today as we didn't have as much time to spend there.
Pepper likes to swim and ended up in the river several times, even though it wasn't deep enough to swim in today. Luckily she's more than happy to come out and run along with the other dogs. Once we get to the nature reserve, she likes to swim in the pond there, which is usually deserted (although the summer might change that).
So, as not much else happened, I'm going to leave you with some pictures.

|Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...|
|Ellie waits on the side as she doesn't like to swim|

Hopefully I'll have another post on Thursday as Pepper goes for her daycare assessment.
