October sun

As I watch the world through rain-battered windows, white horses galloping across the bay to the invisible shores beyond and the wind, still eerie in the daylight, ricocheting off my neighbours’ walls, it’s worth remembering that not every day is like this.

Just the other side of the weekend we woke to blue skies, the sea calm and the sunlight glinting off cliffs as far away as Dorset. The air was crisp but still warm in the sun. It didn’t feel much like autumn then at all.

I followed Arthur up through the woods and along the path to the fort. His excitement was palpable: as with all of our little adventures, even the well-trodden ones, there was a sense that anything might happen.

When we got there, it wasn’t clear whether he had shrunk or the world had grown. Whichever it was, he looked so tiny as he ran around being chased by his shadow that it almost took my breath away.

Once his efforts had exhausted him he came back to me again, both bigger and smaller now and ready for  sleep: peaceful and contented in the October sun.

    Gorgeous photos – Arthur looks like he is having a wonderful time exploring in them and looks very snug in the carrier in the last photo 🙂

    I love Arthur’s trousers! And I need some reminding of the warm Autumn sun-there’s an awful lot of cold rain and wind right now isn’t there. Such a beautiful spot-I’m a teensy bit envious of all that space to roam 🙂 x
