We went on a l o n g walk this morning, we did the circular walk which starts in the fields at the end of our road. We had to go through the big field which has cows with big horns in sometimes, we didn't see any today but She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed picked up a big stick just in case. We found a deaded moley on the path, it had it's little toeses pointing up to the sky and didn't move when I sniffed it. We followed the path to Dead Mans Gulch where they found a deaded man washed up on the beach back in history, but now there's only baby seals in the cave at baby seal time. It's not baby seal time now so we didn't see any baby seals today. We followed the cliff path to Pen Peles where the mummy seals used to haul up on the rocks, but we didn't see any mummy seals either. Nor did we see any dollyfins. Then we turned off the cliff path and went inland and back to the road. She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed wasn't sure whether to go back on the road or accross the fields to the deserted farm, so I took her to the deserted farm. She went behind one of the old buildings to leave some peemail and left me on guard in case anyone came past. No one ever comes this way usually, but they did today so I barked to warn her and then I played with a Weimerama and we walked across the field together before they went home to the cottage next door to the deserted farm. We were out all morning and walked nearly 6 miles.

I was very excited today,we went to my favourite shop in Cilgerran to get my food, but we had to go a new way cos the times of the buses have changed and we can't get there the way we usually go. So we got off the bus at Llechryd bridge and walked along the tow path at the side of the running waters. We had to go past the old fish traps that caused riots way back in history and the land owner was forced to smash them up, and that building is the mews to what used to be known as Castle Malgwyn hotel but is now known as Hammet House. I went in the running waters lots and then we came to the ruins of the quarrymens cottages. The running waters used to be very deep but they quarried stone from the river bank and threw the spoil into the water until it wasn'tdeep enough for their boats anymore. I got lots of seedy bits stuck to me and She Who ThinksShe Must Be Obeyed gave me a good brush when we got home. The nasty bus driver drove straight past us at the bus station and we had to wait another 45 minutes for the next one. I was very worried my food would unfreeze and go bad in the sun but it woz alright and She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed put it away in the ice place as soon as we got back.
