It has been great that the mornings are much lighter now, it has enabled me to take our new rescue Labrador Kai on Broadford & Strath Community Woodland walks. You would think nothing much happens at 7am on Skye, well you would be totally wrong. This is a great time to see all the wildlife, only yesterday Kai and I came across a family of Otters, Mum dad and two pups. Kai sat really quietly while I enjoyed 1o minutes just watching them playing in the water and rambling over the rocks, it was a wonderful experience to see them so close up. Earlier in the week I had taken one of Kai’s rope Kong toys with me, he loves to play fetch, he was really enjoying himself until one of my throws landed the toy halfway up a pine tree! Not at my best early in the morning, I had a go at knocking it out of the tree with my walking pole only to get it stuck as well! I have ordered a new toy for Kai, fortunately we had two other poles. I threw a stick for Kai this morning, it is stored somewhere for us to play tomorrow, we saw a seal and two Oyster Catchers no Otters to-day the tide was further in. We will hopefully catch a glimpse of the Eclipse tomorrow. We are really enjoying having a black Lab back in our lives, he is a great wee dog and if you are staying with us this year you will get a chance to meet him.
