Thursday 28 November 2013 – Dog Walking with Heather

Heather, Rowan, Millie and Daisy 

It had been a while since my last visit to Long Preston, so it was good to find Heather on good form.

One of her regular duties is the exercising of Millie and Daisy, two very good natured and well behaved spaniels belonging to a neighbour. They get on with Heather’s own dog, Rowan – a bouncy one-year-old.

Today’s 14 km circuit from Long Preston was one that has been described before on these pages. We set off on this occasion from near Long Preston’s church.

The morning passed quickly as we gobbled up the kilometres, pausing occasionally to pass the time with a selection of Heather’s neighbours.  Some stiles had to be negotiated, and my lack of skill in photographing people and animals is demonstrated below.

Before we knew it, we were back in Long Preston for a late lunch, then it was a swift return to Timperley for me, for dinner in the local students’ excellent Aspire Restaurant, with Sue, Amedea and Scott.

I may add route details later – I’m a bit pressed for time just now.

Thanks for coming over Martin. Great to catch up on the hoof!(or with 12 paws) Heather

I recently discovered a function on my complicated camera that allows me to take multiple shots at very short intervals. Great for people and animals - usually one of them works out okay, without looking posed. Maybe your Canon has something similar. Especially good for non-cooperative dogs...

Yes Nick, I think the Canon G12 has that facility. Or in the case of my G12, it HAD that facility, as due to the internal disintegration of its lens, mine is now deceased, so I'm using the excellent Lumix FT4 at present.
