This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

Sunday, Nov 21st, 2010

Still damp, grey and gloomy - but not too cold.
We went out at 7.20 a.m. - a bit later than usual, but at least it was light, and its being Sunday, the park was empty.

We went straight to the tennis courts, the ravens were waiting for us in the cherry trees.

They were circumspect, as usual, when picking up their titbits, and today I noticed they flew off well before we left, and didn't come back.
I wonder if this is due to the increased daylight. Usually, they and we are about a good half hour earlier, when dawn is starting, and they haven't flown off then. Rather, they accompany us back to the cherry trees.
We'll se what they do tomorrow.

Miss Sophie hasn't forgotten her training, and she even came back, running the full length of the courts, when she was in the act of rushing to get to the other end to sniff some passing dogs. Mind - I had to turn away and walk to the gate before she came, having called her three times ...

Weather permitting, tomorrow I shall try and take one of her 'retrieve' object with me, to enliven the proceedings.
The sciatica is on its way out, thankfully!
