Whenever I'm back home, I love taking my parent's black labrador, Rufus, out for walks across the country park and the cliffs. This morning's walk was not the usual though... the heavy hailstones yesterday and the freezing temperatures overnight transformed the green hills into one big block of ice!
The wooded area wasn't as icy
Rufus loved the ice and happily slid and ran around on it, blissfully unaware of the dark clouds threatening to snow again!
The Country park was really beautiful with the layer of ice and snow
The steps back down... THE definition of "treacherous"! But, Rufus was very good and walked close by me and waited patiently, checking that I was ok... bless him! I was very glad that I borrowed my mums metal spiked boots... if I hadn't, I would have definitely fallen down several times!
