Cycling to Rosemarkie Beach – another summer snapshot. It takes us only five minutes or so to get there……along quiet roads, past the golf course and campsite, with the sea in view all the way.
Our silly Susie hasn’t taken to running alongside the bike very readily. She started off pretty convinced that the bike was out to attack her. But after several more trips, and some patience and encouragement, she is steadily relaxing and beginning to enjoy the run…..and I can stop gritting my teeth. I don’t find it at all relaxing to have a reluctant dog beside me given that I’m shepherding the three older children and desperately trying to make sure I don’t topple my bike with Katie on the back! I think the perseverance is paying off though and I can see us making this trip often. Katie and I walk along too Rosemarkie too, after the others have been safely escorted onto the school bus, but I think we’ll cycle sometimes especially if we have less time and want to be sure that Susie has had a good run.
In other news, the sun has returned. Not with quite so much heat behind it but it is certainly very welcome! I hope you are enjoying a sunny Monday morning too!
