Wordless Wednesday: Smiles in the Breeze

two whippets in black jackets running on the beach in deep sand
a smiling black whippet and a blue and white whippet with a pink ball in her mouth running towards the camera on the beach
a smiling black whippet in a black jacket leaping across the beach and a blue and white whippet in a black jacket with a pink ball in her mouth running through the deep sand in front of the turquoise waves

It’s been a breezy and sunny start to the day at 4C and took a little while to warm up.

We are taking a short blogging break to focus on editing our next book and will be back next week. We will post a Silent Sunday post on our sister blog Tranature as per normal and will check in to read and catch up on comments when we can.

We wish you all a very happy Wednesday and a wonderful weekend!
