Alderley Edge this morning, including entrance to ancient copper mines and view to Jodrell Bank radio telescope.

If I looked out of my window, I could probably wave to you.

Well, almost...

I just googled Alderley Edge and read about a fascinating legend involving a farmer, a white horse and an old man.  :)  Is it well known?  At least in the area?

Very nice Steve but where is Jodrell Bank?

It's not so obvious in that photo; this one was taken not far away but with a much larger telephoto lens.

We actually live 15 miles away in Sale but visit this part of Cheshire a lot as well as closer areas such as the airport and Wilmslow. The last few days though I've been walking the dogs from home, one at a time as it's a much more relaxing experience and different walks are better suited to each of them. Today Ralph went round the nearby park, Joe along the canal and Miko to the woods.

I suspect it might be true as Ralph the dog once ran off in the woods and came back pouring blood from a long, clean and straight cut to his ear - just like a sword might inflict. :o

???  Poor dog!  And lucky you!  Three dogs to choose from when taking a walk.  ;) :)

I tried getting my cats used to being on a leash outside...that didn't go over well!  One of them kept circling around one of my rose bushes which made it quite challenging for the walker.

Ah, we're not quite close enough to wave, then. We're just outside Sandbach, so we'd need to turn up the music pretty loud to be able to hear one another.

Ah, buddy. What a great choice. A man of taste. My non-classical choice this morning is Uada.

LOL we once saw someone in Lancashire taking a ferret for a walk on a leash. They'd need to keep a sharp lookout for dogs. :o

I'm making an effort to do different walks from home so today Joe's been to the lake - and in it.

I know someone who has two cats (Bengals I believe) which he puts on leashes.  The older male one (which he acquired first) is fairly adventurous and they'll take short walks around their neighborhood.  The more recently acquired and younger female has gotten used to the leash but is much more people afraid and is reluctant to leave their yard.  They also have two stakes in their yard to which they have attached long leads(?).  They'll bring their cats outside when they (the couple) are hanging out in their yard.  The cats seem to enjoy it (and have access to shady areas out of the sun)...watching the birds, etc. (but can't get at them).

Yes, dogs love to go splashing around in the water...particularly on warm days.  :)
