saturday & no. 12

A nice, quiet Saturday in which:
  • We introduced the pup to The Beach. And she loved it - I mean, why wouldn't she?

We did ponder the abandoned shopping trolleys in the background... They're often filched to be used as transport / mobile homes / cargo ferriers, but why dump them on the beach? Is this where they're parked at night? Did their new owners bring them down to wash them off (like the scrap metal guys do with their cart-horses)? Did they get pushed off the promenade as part of an insurance scam...?

  • We discovered the existence of yellow watermelon! Yellow. Who knew?

And the child, who scorns all fruit except bananas and the occasional (un)lucky apple, LOVED it. And probably consumed far more than the recently recovered victim of a stomach bug should have... (pic, and some more info, from here).

  • We laughed at the peril of training a puppy and a toddler at the same time. Whenever we ask Frieda to say 'please' before giving her something, she sits! Now if the pup starts saying 'please' it'll get really interesting...
  • And I baked a batch of cookies - cranberry & orange for the grown-ups, choc chip with white chocolate icing & sprinkles for the kids. And also for the grown-ups.

And yes, that'll be no. 12!

No idea why that posted twice. But, oh well. Feel free to delete one! (And, ha! I had to laugh at the trolleys in that photo. Lovely.)

and yellow watermelon is surprisingly good.
