Liverpool dog walking ; October 2018

The afternoons are closing in fast, the trees shedding their leaves in the blustery shakes of the wind, the glorious hues of red and amber and orange are still there to lighten up the woodland canopy. The ground is still dry and mud free but the pungent smell of damp earth clings to us on our first early morning walk. The seasons are changing fast, a second fleece layer and hat is needed most days, its only six weeks to shortest day of the year, the winter solstice. The dogs are still loving it though, we still get lovely warm spells when we take off to the dunes for a longer trot and the sunshine pushes us on. Recent days on the Alt estuary and Cabin Hill nature reserve stand out nicely
