Beach Time!

Germany is currently experiencing the coldest March in the last 30 years. About two weeks ago I took this photo of Anna in our local forest. The sun shining low through the trees and fresh snow covering the forest ground.

Golden Retriever German Forest in Winter

We thought it’s time to go south! France and the Mediterranean Sea are well known for always having beautiful sunny weather. On the day of arrival that was the case but then rain followed!
No reason not to take the dog out! Anna loves water, so rain will not bother her. It turned out to be one of the nicest walks. I took an umbrella and wore my gumboots and we played in the sea and rain puddles. Little streams ran down the mountains and Anna discovered her love for moving water.

Finally we had sunny weather again and I could take some photos of Anna with her two new collars (the green spring collar and the red flower collar).
