What a lovely Autumn day to take a walk to the Esplanade here in Palmerston North. Mac was on the look out for cats so kept pulling and walking ahead while on the streets. Once we gained the Esplanade he relaxed and enjoyed the bush environs, smells and sights.
Until we came across two rabbits lolling about. They were in no hurry to escape as we came upon them but Mac took a run and almost pulled my wrist off my arm. He barked and looked at me as if to say I should let him off leash. Sorry Mac – not in the Esplanade!
We finished off with a swim along the Dittmer Drive stretch of the Manawatu River where we came across some yappy small dogs. They are not fun.
Had a lovely visit today from a thrush. It tracked me in the garden scratching and prodding in the earth where I had been. I even tossed it a couple of snails which it takes to concrete or bricks and then proceeds to flick its head and wallop the shell until it breaks.
