Another Day Another Dog Walk

I could title this many things….some would be NSFW….as some may know, we have a new edition to the family, a dog. A large dog. Everyday, (that the kids are in school) it is my added chore to take care of this 4 legged beauty, and I do. Today was a beautiful day and I took him for a long leisurely walk along the water, letting him sniff the smell out of everything…and all I wanted was 20 minutes to sit and sketch at Solvik Beach…but no….we couldn’t do that….we had to chew the leash and bark like a maniac.

I got a little on the paper, jumpy from the barking and preoccupied with a leash wrapping up my ankles…

I was really enjoying the fact that it was a beautiful day in May….and…..there were swimmers….in Sweden, in May. Not warm enough for me, even at 24c on the thermometer. but WOW
