The harvest has begun
The sugar cane harvesting season has started. This makes the dog walk even more interesting. They think they’re being taken to a brand new place because some of the sugar cane is gone and the landscape has changed.
We need to get them to the creek without having to walk down the road. So they now get a ride as well!
We converted the old trailer to a travelling dog cage to keep them safe.
They love the ride as much as they love the walk
With machines like this around there is no room for puppies on the road
Now that some of the sugar cane has been cut there are new smells and things buried underground that they never knew existed before.
I watched my dog Casey get very excited about a new find on Saturday. She knew there was something hiding in the newly cut cane field, but she couldn’t find it – no matter how far she dug.
If I hadn’t called her off she may have dug all the way to China.
Her sheer determination reminded me of myself when it comes to work and writing. Once I get a sniff of an idea or a story I’m like the proverbial dog with a bone.
Something we don’t often see in the tropics is the cool temperatures. The children bought me a weather station for Mother’s Day and this gave me the opportunity to capture a rare event last week.
5.9 degrees in the tropics – unheard of!
In truth I’m absolutely loving this cool weather. In a few months I’ll be wishing for the relief!
In case you’re interested – this is what the weather station looks like outside. You never have to empty the rain gauge and the wind spinny thing can get up to about 240kph (hope I never see that!)
Have a great week!!!
