I will miss him


By johnjoe


Harvey is gone home now just over a week, I miss him.When my son had to go away as I thought for business NO it was to the World Cup in South Africa and not for one week but two. When I saw Harvey I said to myself here goes the garden and here comes the walking, thank God the weather was very good.I would walk 4 miles in the morning and 2 in the evening.Well if you bare with me I would like to show you some of the places we went to. I live in north Co Dublin at the coast so I have a lot of parks and beaches near me.

The day Harvey arrived

A walk on the beach at Portmarnock with my grandson

Harvey in the sand dunes

The beach is about 2 miles long

This little fella just woke up and is wondering where the sea has gone

No its not Harvey’s home it is called Malahide Castle and it and it’s grounds are owned by the state

The open space is great for my grandchildren

My two grandchildren Saorise & Jack at Malahide woods

I think Harvey found some ants

If you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a great surprise

Here we are at the end of our walk in Malahide woods as I thought this would be a convenient place to stop

Bye for now J.J

Is it any particular photo or is it all of them. Have comments from other people and they don't seem to have a problem viewing them. Wonder if it is something on your end of the line.
