Heading home from work today I thought it would be super duper to go out to Raglan for the afternoon and take the dogs for a run on the beach. But before I even got home I detoured to the Hospice in town. My favourite at the moment as the clothing is all $2.50 per piece and always worth poking your nose in the racks every so often.
Who can pass up 3 religious statues for $5?
Even though I don't have a traditional religious bone in my body
I do like holy statues.
Of course there were clothes!
Back on track I made it home, had a hot drink and a light lunch, got the dogs in the car, and Jak (the spare) and off we went to the beach. Jak is off work at the moment for a reason that will become obvious in photos to follow and he is not happy, and we are only on day two!!
First port of call was Manu Bay to check out the surf, and yeah there wasn't any. Perfect for boaties as it was reasonably calm, but a handful of surfers were enjoying themselves.
The dogs were beyond excited, and we had it all pretty much to ourselves.
Just how I like it.
Yes, he has another cast on 'that arm'! This is just a precaution as he can't get to see the hand specialist until 5th September, so hopefully it isn't broken again. Long story but the result of more SPORTS!! At this stage he is off work until the 5th, and already suffering from cabin fever.
Oscar just follow me into the water........then I will shake all over you!!!
So easily pleased.
Just a little bit of fancy football.
Hey Sheba, I'll look after your ball while you go swimming again!
Oh nah Oscar, I'll take it with me!
Sheba could have done this for hours!!
Absolutely nothing beats a walk on the beach breathing in all that fresh sea air!
