We woke up just before the sun was rising (4:20 am) so <i got dressed real fast and out we went. It was just enough chilly to have some ground fog and to make the flies calm and away from me. We haven’t walked much in the village this year so I thought today would be a good day to do it and since there are no bulls in the bull pasture this summer there would be less flies around so that would make it an even better road to walk. Yes I am obsessed by flies now, I always am this time of year 🙂 🙂
No birds sing here now, they are all preparing for either the move south or for the coming winter here. It still isn’t totally quiet since sheep and cattle rarely are. I could also hear some deer warning for something but that was it. This isn’t a tourist place so no cars were out on the roads either, it is vacation season so very few are out on the roads that time in the morning.
It was so cool, almost cold but to wear a sweater would be just too much because as long as one is walking in the sunshine it’s just warm enough. The only negative thing with walking in the village (friends of mine says it isn’t a village, it’s just a big empty space 🙂 ) is that I need to have all three dogs leashed and they really don’t walk well when leashed 🙂 I always have the dogs leashed when walking by houses since I have no idea who might be afraid of dogs. So we continued the road we’ve walked a lot lately and that’s when it started to become warm enough for the flies to start flying around.
I did of course not bring my mosquito hat so if it hadn’t been for the roe deer doe I would have gone insane 🙂 She just turned up in front of us and didn’t seem to care much about us so I’m pretty sure she had her young one rather close to us. I was so concentrated on her so I almost forgot the flies until one landed in my ear 🙂 🙂 She and Sune stood and looked at each other for a while and then she just continued to grace. I’m pretty sure she’s one of “my” old deers. She was just too comfortable with having us close for not knowing who we were and how we would behave since we had passed the place where I’m pretty sure the young one was.
The fog had almost vanished when we came home but suddenly it returned and became real fog, the thick one that doesn’t allow you to see the sky but now I can see the sun again so I guess this fog will vanish too eventually.
Have a great day!
