The leaves have suddenly come down and everywhere is thickly carpeted~

and there have been an amazing amount of hazelnuts and sweet chestnut conkers everywhere

~ time for a drink

the river here was almost non existant but the rains have replaced what was lost and hopefully the kingfisher and the dippers are all enjoying the clear water as much as the dogs~

and of course there are sticks and branches to chew…

chewing?~

did somebody mention tea?

I don't think they could have found a bigger stick! lol They look right at home on the forest trails and bridges. Lovely photos, Arlene....and pretty handsome boys they are!

Beautiful photos of your boys, Arlene and the wood looks great too. I went leaf kicking with Millie this morning, lovely crunchy leaves but today it has rained.

Nice to see your 'boys' doing what dogs 'should' do, Arlene, and in such a lovely place. Is this your usual walk with them?

Hi Barbara ~ the first photo is where I go every morning and the second one is the lower path apart 15 feet or so further down towards the road
so that you can do a circular route if you want to have a longer walk ~ the river walk is further on again across the road at the bottom of the bank and through the trees ~ I think Hywel knows where this is.
The walk starts at the back of the car park of the local pub(the Gower Inn)
and is a popular summer walk for visitors ~ not so many are here at this time of year,particularly when it is very wet~ usually people with dogs!~although it can get very muddy!
When it gets really hot out on the golf course and down to the beach at lunch time they usually go there instead as it is much cooler.
I hope your Henry is more himself and enjoying his walks too~

He is and he isn't, Arlene...sometimes he has a burst of energy and a playful few minutes, then he's back in his bed again. We're just thankful that he hasn't had any more fits! He does enjoy his walks, thank goodness. :-)) Yes, it IS getting muddy underfoot, isn't it!

Thanks for the lovely walk, Arlene. Your dogs really do steal the show, don't they?

The "boys" look even more gorgeous with those autumn colours, Arlene, and they obviously enjoy their times there. :-))
