There is a golf course nearby, and although one shouldn't be walking about on it, when I took my friend's WONDERFUL dog, Mimi, for a morning walk.... we couldn't resist. (It was early and there were no golfers yet!) And.... we met.... these adorable "Golf-Deer"!
I also was lucky to see....this beautiful White Egret.
And... these "Romantic Ducks" - a perfect image for Valentine's Day!
The change of scenery was relaxing and talking to a good friend, laughing, cooking great meals, sharing a glass of wine - all were such fun.... I felt like I had a mini-holiday!
Here is the wonderful Mimi - in action - doing her favourite thing in the world - retrieving a ball! We can do this for hours! (I took this shot of her last year in San Francisco at Chrissy Field.) It was lovely to have a doggie in my life again!
Happy Animal Wednesday everyone! Oh, and congratulations to the ADORABLE 2011 Winner of the Westminster "Best in Show" - Hickory - one of my favourite breeds - a Scottish Deer Hound! Bravo, Hickory!
