Re:
Fennie's Avatar What a lovely beach. No seals that I can see (nor Alsatians) but maybe the chariot racers were out in force. For some reason I had expected to see palm trees! Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Camilla's Avatar No no Palm Tree's Fennie although I have seen some of them in folks back gardens as I pass by on the way to the dunes.Very Happy

It was lovely over there at 9.30am this morning but the sea had huge breakers so did not encourage Patch to go too near this time although he got his feet wet. Beautiful weather like a warm autumn day with a fresh cool breeze. Then we met a lady who had a sweet black little Pug dog, I asked the lady what did she call him and she said... Wait for it... JeffreyVery Happy perfect name for a Pug I thought and Patch took a liking to him too. Then we met a man who had a black and white Pointer dog whose name was Mist and was three years of age and could run like a greyhound and just as fast only I can not run like a greyhound and couldn't keep up trying to get Patch back!

This afternoon I did some more painting of the outside garden chairs only two more to do now and then the table at some time when I get round to it. More walks on the dunes after with Patch and just gulping down half a Guinnness before I begin cooking this evening's meal. Cold ham salad tonight me thinks with Jersey pots and a large glass of cool crisp white wine.

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Perhaps the Pug is named after Jeffrey Barnard Fennie.Very Happy

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Perhaps, there are Jeffrey's or Geoffrey's everywhere, though I am not sure if I am enamoured of pugs. Odd sort of dogs. What is a pug for? I blame the Stuart Kings who had odd tastes in dogs. Actually I have been trying to find out what Bassets are - as hunted by Basset hounds. Probably a type of deer or maybe a badger - but there must be something called a basset.

Save some Guinness and jersey potatoes (with lots of mint and butter) for me, but isn't it funny how a glass of wine or beer helps the cooking?

Re:
Camilla's Avatar I think Pugs are quite gorgeous Very Happy my daughter has a Basett Hound with great enormous dumbo ears he is lovely and kind natured although he can be stubborn too one of the traits apparently in this breed also they loathe being left on their own even for a few moments.

Ah yes Withy now remember you have a Geoffrey too.Very Happy

It is a lovely beach Muddie, still love Wells next the Sea one though where we spent a good many years on when children were growing up we had a beach hut there happy memories of when my MIL used to cook breakfast for us on a small stove in the hut.Very Happy

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar Being rather fond of Bassets and Ballet I actually know this one Fennie. Very Happy
It's from the french and pretty much means low slung!
The ballet connection is from the term "Bras Bas" to hold your arms low in front of you.

It's a lovely beach Camilla I could pootle along there for hours. Do you get many shells on it?

Posted by: Fairy Nuff on 1st Sep 2017 at 08:25AM

Re:
Camilla's Avatar No FN not one single shell on this beach that was the first thing I noticed when I first came here. Only different sized stones and different shades of stones too. I have collected some from the beach and laid a line of them on my stone window sill which leads out from the sitting room into the rear garden.Very Happy

If you happen to go to Wells next the Sea here in Norfolk the beach there which is lovely and white sands they have hundreds and hundred of shells there all from different sea food, mainly cockles though. It is in the north Norfolk coast.
