Down by the Trent
The weather held out long enough for us to take Ellie to a new location today. We took her to a part of the River Trent in Beeston. It's a lovely area, with a park, and plenty of access points to the river. The photo to the left was taken at the end of the park, where there's a small waterfall.
The river was quite fast-flowing today, but that didn't prevent Ellie from exploring it, and even swimming in it. This was her first proper swim. Usually, the waters we have taken her to haven't been deep enough for her to swim in.
We spent quite some time just throwing stones into the river for Ellie to try to retrieve, though we kept getting interrupted by another dog that was there with its owner. Despite its appearance, it was a pleasant enough dog though. Ellie did as she usually does, and just ignored it.We decided today, after reviewing all of the photos that we took while there, that we need a new camera. We've now ordered a new one and so there should be a marked improvement in photo quality as of next week. The new one has a much better ISO, zoom, and features. I'm really looking forward to getting that!
There are loads more photos from the day in the gallerye.
