Walking Penny is a duty, in one way. We aim to go out for at least forty minutes every day. (We don't achieve that goal all the time, of course.)
But in another way it's an absolute pleasure, because even an ordinary place is made interesting by Penny's company. Who'd have thought, for instance, that a concrete yard could hold so many smells to investigate?
And you certainly never know what you'll find in a grassy back lane...
I found lovely sunny vistas.
Penny found bread rolls! (Oh, how I wish our neighbors wouldn't throw bread into the back lane.)
Every walk is an adventure, if Penny is with me.
