My very long walk

Part two

At Stanborough lakes.

We walk around the south side of Stanborough. For some reason there are little piles of sand, I think they are for having sand baths in.



Then we have to cross over the road to the north side.



We walk up the hill...


...and through some trees.



Lots of rabbits live on the other side of the hill. Strange how they all run away when they see me.



We go across a little bridge.



By this time I am very hot and thirsty. So I cool off in the water and have
drink.



Sometimes the water gets in your ears and you have to have a good shake to get it out.



Then we walk around the duck pond. I'm not allowed in this water because Mummy says it is dirty and smelly.




If I'm not allowed in the duck pond, then they are not allowed on my path.




We then go back to the south side. This time we go under a bridge. There are lots of fish in the water by the bridge.



I like to try and catch the fish with my paws. I haven't managed it yet.



I have another little dip to cool off before we start heading back.



Tune in tomorrow for the journey home.

Hi, Simba...

What a great place...There are rabbits & ducks & fish & sand...What could be better??

That sand bathing stuff is great...I did that at the ocean...I'm sure they put the sand there cuz they knew you were coming...

Can't wait to see the walk home...

Oh...& Thanks for the info on the stinging nettles...I really don't think they grow here...But I think I'm glad they don't...
