Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Our Delightful Bundle of Joy is 10 years old today and as you can see, she's well behaved and settled down by now:
That was last summer in Scotland - for the readers of Gavin Maxwell's book 'Ring of Bright Waters' Camusfearna should be well known and apparently there are still otters there! - although the one above looks more like a sea monster!
But let me start from the beginning: In late spring we went to visit our friends Barbara and Tiny in Vienna:
And because none of us likes hot summers, we went right up to the northern coast of Scotland for the summer holidays:
We still tour with our small VW California camper and Joy has a special place there on the 'sofa':
In autumn, we went to the Engadin, Switzerland, right on the border to Italy and enjoyed a very special autumn with the trees in lovely colours:
We went on to the Dolomites, Italy, for extended walks:
And last but not least a photo of our lovely girl, taken last spring, resting in her raincoat, while we were taking photos of wild orchids - the yellow spots in the background are actually lady slippers!
This year, we have already been to Sicily in Feb and to Sardinia over Easter, but I have to dash to work and if I do not put up that blog now, it will probably be another year... so Happy Birthday, lovely girl; a special treat is waiting for you tonight:-)).
