Tin Dragon Cottages Winter
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.
Follow the leader Look at me!
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.
Always attentive Have you still got that pesky camera pointing at me? Caring for the land Greeting our neighbour Betty and Frank I can see you!
After the walk it’s time for a well-earned rest…
Intimate moment Almost home again Exhausting! Time for a rest
