Day One – The Dry Day

The Herd, of course, really did not care about the view so much as the activity:

    Beautiful place. Glad the Herd got some good hiking. We’ve had continuous rain all day. No hiking here.

    Views are for humans although out mum did think it was very pretty!
    Our scenery is in the sniffing – looked like a great place for great smells and we know you guys would have had a brilliant time!
    We are still ‘enjoying’ the rain!!!
    love and kisses

    Oh, nice view! Beau would like the lake. Me, long walks with sniffing would be better. Hope
