At Ohope Beach - Pet-Sitting Again.

Oh woe is me - such a horrible time I am having at Ohope Beach again. We walk on the beach twice a day, about a total of 5 km (3 miles) and the waves, sun, fresh air and blue skies ... oh boo hoo. Ghastly.

It's so bright it hurts my eyes so I have to wear sunglasses and a sun hat. 

With her little legs Poppy gets tired after about three kms, so has to ride. 

Too hot so have to cool off in the water sometimes. Awful. 

Too many smells that get renewed each tide.  Can't keep up! 

So few people we have to be vigilant all the time to catch the ones with dogs. 

Distracting small creatures' burrows all over the place. 

Sometimes it's quite windy and our fur and hair get in our eyes. 

When the sun goes down we can't see any more. 

Between the road and the beach there are garish bright  flowers 
Horrible rare sharp shells ...
We get so hungry we are really ready for tea time.
