walter turns five

My sweet boy turned five today - a very good reason to sneak off for a long walk around Loe Pool.

The lake was shrouded in mist, so the landscape appeared and disappeared in layers. It was quite beautiful.

Walter was quite happy to go in for a quick dip, chasing sticks, and pootling around in the water. I couldn't get him to keep still long enough for any decent photographs!

By the time we reached Loe Bar, the narrow strip of land between lake and sea, he was ready for a roll in the sand.

Happy Birthday, Walter, you make my heart sing each and every day.

I love the first photo of him! The mist looks quite eerie in the photos - makes me think of Keats and La Belle Dame.

What is it about the back of a dog's head that always makes me teary? Happy birthday, Walter, and wishing you many more.

Happy Birthday to Walter! Pootling in water is perfect for a five year old. And finally I now know that you are the Lady of the Lake... and of the Lad!
