Little Claire Lake

Claire at Little Dog Lake,  4 July 2011

It's been a while since we've been to the lake. With Gromit eating rocks and having surgery and eating rocks and having surgery we've had to take it easy. Now that he's all mended, and summer time has arrived, it's lake time!

Little Dog Lake is great for all three of us: shallow enough for Clifford to play, 

and just a little further out it's deep enough for me to swim. 

There are sticks. n f t

What's also great about my lake is the large sandy beach. 
When the lake is low the sand becomes mud, which feels sooo good when you get it deep in your fur.

Yesterday's beach was extra muddy because it had rained earlier in the day. I brought a lot of the beach sand home with me, and despite Daddy!'s Furminating efforts I still left a significant amount of it in the human beds (ALL human beds), and all over the floors (making the house nice and slippery). 
I told Mum to think of it as "exfoliating" ...some people pay lots of money at a spa for a bed of muddy sand, ....but she's not buyin'. 

It was a great way to end a hot long weekend. I hope all my furiends had a wonderful weekend too!
