Whilst walking Wrecks the dog the other day we were enjoyed wandering around on the Purbeck...when all of a sudden a tank fired in the distance. The army tank training area is in Dorset, and Wrecks does not appreciate this at all. In fact he sat down and faced the way back to the car! His body language says "I'm not going anywhere!" So we headed home for tea!
Spotted this moth on the window the other day, I don't know what it is but just in awe of the amazing colouring and how well it would be camouflaged on a tree.

Wareham walking and sad slow worms

Over the weekend we walked 5 miles around Wareham. Along the river Frome right down to Swinepoint where you can see Poole harbour. It was a hotter day than we had thought so it was a bit much for Wrecks the dog, we stopped to let him cool off in the river and he came out covered in mud! He still smells now!
I found this pot in the garden, unfortunatley a slow worm has gone through one of the holes and tried to get out through another hole and sadly died in the process.

I won't leave pots around on the ground any more.
More cheerfully I took this evening shot whilst walking from Hammoon, near Sturminster Newton to Shillingstone and back on Saturday.
