Having Jackson means that at least one daily walk is a necessity. It's not often that task falls to me, but the other day, on a lovely sunny day, I headed out for his daily stroll.
It wasn't far off midday, but the sun was low and both Jackson and I - astonishingly - looked rather tall.
It's not often Jackson will sit still whilst on a walk....
Once he heads off, it's all sheer joy for him. He absolutely loves his 'Walkies!' (Does anyone else think of Barbara Woodhouse any time they hear the word, 'Walkies!'? I always do.)

Yesterday, DR - Jackson's normal dog-walker - took him for his walk. After the walk, he decided to head back down to the machair with the camera. And a set of wheels.
We've had some beautiful winter weather.
No snow, but spells of blue skies and low sun always make for loveliness.
Having a very blue sea on our doorstep is an added bonus, especially when the low sun rays give a golden hue to the land.
Those of you who follow Homeschool on the Croft on Facebook will have seen the next two photos already. Katie took them on her mobile when she and some of her cousins went on a coastal walk just after New Year.
Such an unusual cloud formation ... looking more like an explosion.
This photo was taken on the coast looking south.

And, finally, Katie's walk today ...
It was frosty and again she had her mobile. I love the frost, but I really love the beautiful signs of life peeking through the dead grass.
"While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease." Genesis 8:22
Frost makes everything look alive!
