Our favourite walking spot is Druridge Bay in Northumberland.

Kara loves chasing the waves on the beach and we enjoy a cuppa at the Drift cafe after!

Wind the clock back to the 1960's and there was another GSD racing across Druridge Bay (based near Cresswell) called Bonzo.  Technically he was Bonzo II, as his namesake lived in the 1930's and '40's.  He was bred at Marley Hill, Gateshead, and probably separated from his mother a bit too early. He chased seagulls in the surf; would never admit that they could outdistance him, and often disappeared far into the dunes, returning in his own good time.  He was often seen skipping the breakers around the other side of the bay in pursuit of gulls, and returned hyperventilating and totally drenched after a worrying wait.  This, and daytime and evening work commitments, meant that it became better to take him there at night when the gulls were grounded, and sometimes in the wee small hours. We did this at all phases of the moon, season, and almost regardless of the wind state. My late mother often accompanied me, and I know that she too found the experience uplifting, and remarked on this more than once later in her life - Bonzo outlived her.  With certainty one of those few cherished moments we all experience!

We enjoy a day out at Nene Park in Peterborough. Lots to do for dogs and the kids.

The Yarrow Valley in Lancashire any part of it is beautiful, we walk it most days, as we grow older we must kerb the rougher climbs, sticking to the good paths, the dogs (past & present) in our life have always enjoyed the freedom and space.
