turning three

Walter is three today. And birthdays must be celebrated, musn't they? We drove back to Cornwall yesterday, and as today was a work-at-home day we sneaked out for a long walk this afternoon, accompanied by the most perfect autumn weather.




A dip and some stick collecting was followed by some digging for treasure, and a roll in the sand, while I collected pebbles.


I think Walter knows just how much he's loved. He makes my heart sing.

Happy Birthday, sweet boy.

Happy Birthday, dear Walter, Georgeous Boy!
Wishing you many days of sunshine, plenty of sticks to chase, the occasional celebratory biscuit and a very cosy cushion to rest your dreaming head upon.

Happy belated birthday to Walter - what a lovely blog you have, and what spectacular photos; I miss the sea so much.
You were spot on with your guess, by the way; we are about 4 miles away from Kingham - which you must be familiar with, as that was a very good spotting!

Dillon aged two & a half says Hi to Walter. Can't keep him out of the water either !

I seriously believe that Walter could be the star of a childrens book. You don't get many kids books that are real photographs so it would be quite different and he is far more adorble than any Teddy bear. I love him. xxx
