Wet & Windy!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy & Holly here!

Before I start, Holly says 'Thank You' to all of you who sent 'Get Well Soon' messages and just to let you know she feels much better today!

Just to prove it, she was out for the morning walk along The Sea Wall, all dressed up in her coat and sniffin every sniff she missed yesterday!

Holly Speed Sniffin!
We met up with Barney again and had a good game of 'Chase His Ball' and even Holly joined in for a while, which is a bit unusual 'cos as you know, Holly 'Doesn't Do Balls'!

Me, with Barney's Ball!
Barney said his leg is all better now and to prove it he did a racing start to chase the ball that Old Two Legs had thrown for us!

The tide was on it's way in and the birds were out in force this morning, it's not often you see so many in one spot!

Birdy Breakfast!
We even spotted a ship moored up close to the mud flats, Holly thought it had run aground but OTL said that it was out in the safe channel, which is good as far as we are concerned!

It was only when we got home and had a close look at the picture did we see that in fact it was Two Ships!

One was the Mark Prior and the other was the Bert Prior. We reckoned they stopped for a tea break before going onto the next job!

Mark & Bert!
We were late having our afternoon walk, in fact, we didn't get out until half past three which was really late!

The sun had all but set so there wasn't much light for taking pictures, not that would stop OTL from having a go!

So, here is Sheerness Docks by Lamplight!
Sheerness Docks by Lamplight!
This one is Southend on Sea.

Southend on Sea, that is in South Essex!
Now, for the technically minded and those who want to look as though they know what they are doing (OTL for one!)

The Southend photo camera settings were:-

Hand Held Camera 1/100 sec at f/5.6 ISO 4000 Focal Length 300mm

Now, aren't you glad we told you that?

Now we are off to mug OTL 'cos he has just been called to dinner!

See you tomorrow!
