of rock and turquoise waves
ocean’s beauty
between us on the shore
the memories keep growing

      1. Thank you dear Lillian, it’s Eivor in the photograph and he’s still with us, showing a few silver flecks in his fur as he’s getting older. He and Seamus (who passed away) are very alike in spirit 🙂💖🐕 xxx
