Mono Maniacs, River and Beach....and an Award!

To join in with Mono Maniacs visit Aileni.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We got this lovely 'Your Blog is Fabulous' award from our good friend Dennis the Vizsla!


Thank you Dennis, we think your blog is pretty fabulous too :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The River Findhorn, which flows from the River Spey down to Findhorn Bay.

Snoop hates this footbridge and tries to tiptoe past it unnoticed. When we cross it he just waits at the other side! (We came straight back, just trying to get the girls used to it.)

This is not only a lovely walk, it's a favourite for bonfires, picnics, parties and fishing. It's also part of the National Cycle Network.

There are dirt jumps for the more adventurous.
We didn't go to Broom of Moy....it's across the dreaded bridge!
We found some pretty flowers....

The big trees are in bud....

....and the girls spotted a rabbit....Rosie squeals and Gabbi snorts....good job they were on leads!

In the evening we went to Findhorn Dunes area and walked back along the beach for a lovely sunset. Over towards the Bay we could see it was really busy but this end of the beach was nice and quiet :o)

We dared to let the girls off lead for a bit, keeping them close with treats....Gabbi was in fine voice while Rosie just smacked her lips!

We posted the wrong video yesterday....THIS is the one of Alfie the clown tormenting Rosie with seaweed!

Hello! thanks for the comments, have released them from the doom that had captured them!!

We went for a long walk on Saturday, and Poppy, we found also hates those bridges - the ones that have like a mesh walkway..? She just hit the deck and would not move - we had to lift her onto dry land! She was also off the lead for the 1st time ever - very exciting! Big licks, Us xxx

Hi Guys
Cool pictures as always - loved the one where all four of you were in the sea. We did wonder if you were all going to swim to Florida!
No worries about missing posts we are trying to relax and get round the posts in two lots now as it does all get a bit much!
You will be even worse as you have loads of followers!
Have a lovely day
Martha & Bailey xx

It is your sunset that I really like - it is very nice.

RockstarJen said...

The bridge shots are great! And those beagles just seem to have way too much fun in the water. :)

GoldenSamantha said...

The bridge pix and the sunset are so gorgeous - they all are! Just don't know which is favorite - your mama is one fab photographer, but she has great subjects!
Hugs and Love xo,
Sammie

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Congratulations, Beagles -- you deserve that award for your fabulous pictures!

Amber and Nala said...

Oh Snoop, aren't those bridges scary!! You are one determined dog to refuse to go across...I admire that! That bike trail looks neat....MOm says she would like to ride on it but she doesn't know about doing any really crazy jumps....maybe though if they aren't too risky. :)

Kisses,
Nala

The Army of Four said...

Oooh, I sure wouldn't be real anxious to go over that bridge, either!
Was it the Easter bunny that you saw?!?!?
LOVELY photos!
Love,
Ammy

Joe Stains said...

Great photos as always. I'd be so totally scared to go on that foot bridge, so would my Dad!!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Loved the photos.You all had a blast didn't you?
We need to apologize. For some reason we weren't showing up on your followers list anymore. Weird things have been happening. We dropped off a few others too.Anyway, we resigned on. It must have been a blogger glitch, or else our mommy is going nuts!!
love ya, BabyRocketDog & Hootie

ps-Belated Happy Easter!

How lovely to have such a beautiful beach! The beagles all seemed to be having great fun! Flash is jealous; he has to be on a lead always where we live. He will dream of running on the beach (of course he watched the video with me). ;0)
