#SundayStills ~ What does Freedom mean to you? #Landscape #Nature #Pets #Wildlife

Welcome to the Sunday Stills feature created and hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt at Second Wind Leisure Perspectives

This week’s theme is Freedom.

At the moment, freedom to me would mean getting out and about and going wherever I please. Won’t be possible for a while.

Freedom of the skies

A herd of Kashmiri goats are free to roam on the Great Orme

During lockdown they took advantage of the lack of people in town and decided to pay several visits en masse.

Finn loves being free to run off lead, especially on the beach.

And I love being free to spend time in this place without a voice following me around saying ‘haven’t you got enough books!’

Barter Books is a fantasic second hand bookshop housed in what used to be a railway station, with many, many shelves of all kinds of books, real fires, a cafe and seating areas scattered around. I really hope they can keep trading.

#SundayStills ~ Celebrating the Joy of Pets #Animals #Pets #Dogs

Welcome to the Sunday Stills feature created and hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt You can find Terri’s post here.

I’m not sure if it’s National Pet Parents Day in Britain but we don’t need an excuse to celebrate pets. I was never allowed a dog growing up so the first thing I did when I married and had a house of my own was (you guessedit!) get a dog. I can’t find the one photo of my first German Shepherd but it was 1981 when we got her. When we lost her, I found Meg.

The worst thing about having animals is when you lose them and although you never forget them I don’t like being being without one.

Jenna came next. This was the day I took her home. Look at those little pink pads

She loved playing in the snow

Now we have Finn, a rescue Lurcher/Saluki. He’s quite young in these photos but has always been a real couch potato, he loves relaxing and sleeping, although he is getting on a bit now so we indulge him 😉

He doesn’t balance plant pots on his head any more either!

Tuesday Photo Challenge ~ #Animals #Pets #Dogs

I’m joining in with the photo challenge over on Dutch Goes The Photo

The subject is animals and how they can be a source of comfort in all sorts of ways. Perhaps particularly now.

This is my dog, Finn. He a Lurcher/Saluki and we’ve had him since he was about 5 or 6 months old. He’s a rescue from LurcherSOS.

He’s a lovely boy, getting on a bit now, just turned 10 years old so not as sprightly as he was but still enjoys his walks and a run on the beach.
