|If I stand on tip toe, I can just see England. ;-)|
The site, at the eastern gateway to Halifax harbour, provides a clear view of the sea in every direction. Around 1942 it was the location of a watch station, tasked with finding U-boat targets. Interestingly, it was staffed, not by military, but by Department of Transport personnel. I posted about a previous visit here.
I chucked the balls off the cliff. The dogs took off in hot pursuit. From my perch I could see both balls amongst the beach rocks below. The dogs searched in ever-widening circles. I was very frustrated to see Trey find Buffy's ball, and continue on without it ! He didn't want THAT ball. He was looking for HIS ball !
I walked to a spot where I could get down to the beach, as unlike the dogs, I'm not good at scrambling down mucky cliffs.
After retrieving Buffy's ball, I began chucking both balls UP the cliff.
|Trey looks down at me, after not being able to find the ball .|
As a result of the big rains, there were several spots where water was coursing down, undermining the cliff's edge, causing slabs of grass to slide down.
The rains also provided Buffy and Trey with big puddles to run through, chasing the remaining ball
It's wonderful to have such stunning scenery just 4 km. from my home.
Have I mentioned before how very lucky I feel to live here ?
