Well, the day seems perfect until one considers where one might take Archie for a walk! You see, Archie and other people's picnics don't mix very well, so a walk in one of the local parks is a "no-no"! In fact, everywhere that normal people go to sit on the grass, share some sandwiches, and drink some tea or coffee from a flask are just no-go areas.
Archie believes in sharing, and that the kindly folk have just brought him a spot of lunch to aid him on his way. It becomes embarrassing. One can't just offer to buy a family, with howling children who have just lost their cake, a new picnic!
So, this lunchtime saw us having a leisurely stroll along the path of the River Clyde in the shade of Dumbarton Rock and Castle. A beautiful walk it was too, until Archie found the smelliest, slimiest piece of the River and rolled gloriously in it all. Don't be fooled by appearances... this dog is a slut!
However, we DID manage to capture the Castle in all its glory. Not often you'll get a photo of Dumbarton with glorious blue skies!
