Hello all - I haven't been out and about this week as I have problems with my paws. I have an allergic reaction to something and I have gone all itchy and D and C woke up one morning to find I had spent the night licking my paws - they were so bad I was limping. I now have medication and have to wear socks - which makes me sulk.
But today was a reprieve as D had to go to Greenwich and decided I was well enough to join her. Greenwich is one of my favourite parks and I sit up in the car when we get within a mile of it! As soon as we park - I toodle off to the Rose garden (No roses in bloom yet).
I love Greenwich park - I always get a lot of attention and there are lots of squirrels! I chase them all the time - but I never get them - today I caught the peanut shell as one ran up a tree (it is hanging from my beard).
We walk all around - D loves to sit and view London from the top of the hill - although we didn't have a True Colours Blue list - the sky over London (when there is blue sky!) is one of our favourite blues. (It looks a bit grey - but it was very blue - honest!)
We then went to see the Prime Meridian - well we had to cross it to go down the hill - this is the line that divides the Earth into Eastern and Western Hemispheres. There is a flashy Meridian marker with lights - but it was covered with Japanese tourists - so we went to the poor man's marker -
No one was there - so D had me sit down on the Greenwich Meridian - which means that at 3 pm - I was the first Fox Terrier in the Western Hemisphere! I also owned the last fox terrier paw in the Eastern Hemisphere.
We then went to meet my friend the Hog Roast man at the covered market in Greenwich (sadly D has not remembered his name and too much time has passed for her to feel comfortable asking again - sigh! - these humans) -
I always get some bit of the pork he roasts - but today I got a whole leg ! Well almost a whole leg - no photos as it made D a little uneasy - she doesn't eat meat - but I sure do! Well, it was all wrapped up , sadly, we didn't stop to eat it. Instead we went walking along the Thames - I can't resist a dip...
We like this walk because there is a Music College nearby - and you can here them playing - so you have your own free public concert. A somewhat wet me...
The nice thing also about today is that spring is on its way - there were signs everywhere - including our visitors from Canada - not Sally and Rufus , sadly - but a pair of Canada Geese....
Well, D completed her Greenwich errand and we were off home. Thankfully - she has cut up the Hog Roast and I had it for dinner - a very nice ending to a nice day.
