The weather couldn't have been more gorgeous.
We didn't bring Cleo this time, but I had walked a nice neighborhood - round with her in the morning though.
Since we walk the dogs separately so often during the week, Aaron seemed to enjoy the fact that I was coming along this time. He kept circling and inviting me to play with him.
Unfortunately he has problems with his right front leg, seems to have injured himself while playing in the snow about a week ago, or so.
Although it doesn't keep him from doing all the things he loves to do, we try to protect him a little by keeping him on the leash.
Aaron, just 8 more days until his 1st birthday! :)
The scenery along the shoreline was just gorgeous and fascinating at the same time.
Sea water, sand, snow and ice.
Beautifully shaped by the changing tides, temperatures below zero and gusting winds.
Already on the way back we spotted a group of Swans (Mute Swan/Höckerschwan/Cygnus olor) flying by. Two adults leading the way for their 4 kids...
Another dream couple (also Mute Swans) came by just before we left the beach, as a New Year's FIRST BONUS! :)
I named this last photograph "the dream couple".
May they fly together in harmony forever!
