Winter 2016 at Tin Dragon Cottages
My greatest pleasure of the day is a morning walk with Graham and Rusty. Rusty nearly wags her hips off with excitement with the mention of Rusty! Come for a walk! If you have a dog you’ll recognise this enthusiasm. So, we head off down our front road alongside the Ringarooma River in Branxholm.
Sometimes we see a rabbit and more rarely–a platypus in our dam. But lately we have been accompanied by our herd of alpacas.
Occasionally Rusty meets up with other dogs taking their owners for a morning walk on our road.
…and most mornings we meet our Branxholm neighbours and their goats.
After the walk it’s time for a well-earned rest…
