This is Gracie - my little dark pup who is very much grown up now :-) She has come back to stay with us for a couple of weeks while her new peeps are abroad on holiday. Well I wasn't that pleased actually at first when I thought she had decided to come back. I mean I spent a good while raising those pups to be independent and I didn't think they would move back again! But if it's just for a holiday - I suppose it's OK. Aoife was pleased to see her though and Trilby is very happy her little sister's back. The two of them have been having zoomies and playing in the garden.
Anyway on Sunday me and Gracie went for a trip out to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park - and Crybbe decided to tag along too:
There were lots of huge and strange sculptures there:
Crybbe was checking the notice to try and work out what this was.
This shiny ball looked as though it had landed on someone's house - you can just see our reflections in it!
This was supposed to be a sculpture but it looked just like an old tree trunk in a pit to me!
It was a beautiful place for a walk though among the trees and we even found a money tree:
Peeps had hammered coins into a fallen tree trunk.
Leigh saw a heron a long way off in the lake and managed a fuzzy photo.
And then we found this strange sculpture:
This is another view:
We thought it must have been some sort of rain dancer because as soon as we got there the sun disappeared and it poured with rain! Crybbe wasn't at all pleased as he hates getting wet and I was a bit fed up too!
But we tried to shelter under the tables of a little coffee stop for a bit:
Gracie & Crybbe
And then set off back to the car park with a few stops for photos:
It was a fun walk even with the rain and when we got home we were all in need of a snooze. Here is Gracie dreaming of her day out :-)
