Continuing from yesterday...
First, a couple of photos that should have been in part 2, but didn't make it because I needed to ask Kelly about them:
This photo of the sunrise was taken not far from our new place; just before you get on to the road that takes you in to the town, I think. I have no idea when it was taken though... I'm guessing when Kelly took the camera with him to get the shots that you'll see later on in this post. Anyway... Here's the photo:
And this we think is some kind of old fashioned clock tower. It kind of looks like a cross between a church and a clock tower, but it's not big enough to be a church. Anyway, it's up the road from us, and Kelly thought it was cool so grabbed a photo of it. And here's the photo:
During our trips up town Kelly mentioned that a few of the shops are nicely decorated for Halloween/Samhain. So I asked him to grab some photos for me to share.
These first couple are of the decorations in the window of the fruit and veg shop...
An old fashioned weight scale covered with cobwebs:
And these are from the window of the hairdressers...
A cobweb covered skeleton:
Apparently you can see Kelly's reflection in the window in the above photo, and the reflection of a church. It's no ordinary church though; it's been converted in to flats (apartments) by the look of it. I bet those people have no trouble finding their way home... LOL!
Pumpkins and gourds in the hairdresser window:
During another trip up town we visited a shop that we went to just for Kero; the shop where we got those calming dog treats I mentioned in the post I did early Sunday morning. It's called "The Dog Biscuits," and here it is:
I just love their sign:
("Dogs welcome, but must be accompanied by well behaved owners").
Kero made friends with the owners as well as their cattle dog, Jenna.
(Sorry, no Jenna photos).
We got him those calming treats I already mentioned; they're called "Calm Dog"... Rather appropriately. We also got him some dental bones called "Fab Fangs."
And we got him the red and green tartan bandanna he's wearing in this photo:
You should see him after we give him the calming treats; it's really funny!
They take 15 minutes to get in to their system, and we can tell when the 15 minutes are up; he goes from hyper hound to dopey dog. When we give him the treat he throws it around and plays with it before eating it. By the time the 15 minutes are up there's no way he'd be up for doing that; it's all he can do to keep his eyes open to watch where we are. He had more energy after the exhausting journey from the old place to here than he has after one of those treats... So, I guess they work well. LOL!
There's a Frenchh market stall in town every Friday (which is where I've been getting my French pastries). They do fantastic food, and their prices aren't too bad.
There's also a craft market there on a Saturday, but we haven't had an oppertunity to go and have a look yet; too busy doing other things. I do plan to go and check it out soon though, and I'm sure I'll tell you about it when I do. :)
Actually, there are LOADS of places we want to check out; there's a lot to do around here, and we plan on doing as much of it as possible!
And Kero doesn't mind... The more we're outside, the more he gets to be outside. ;)
Right... Well, that's it for today; come back tomorrow for the final part.
