Walking this morning

 There were sheep on the dam bank as we walked along near Petrels Cove.
I actually managed to walk to the end of the beach and back, I havent done that in months. I feel very pleased with myself.
It was a little sad as there are so many dead mutton birds ( shearwaters) all along the beach. In our walks lately we have seen hundreds of them. I have never seen so many but we have had wild seas and winds and I suppose it is natures way of not letting populations get too big.
There was also a large dead seal on the rocks, at first we thought it was a rock as it was on the beach a fair distance below us, but now I have looked at the photos I took it is very obviously a seal.
I havent put that photo up here.
The Billy buttons are still flowering well above the beaches and I added a rock to the welcoming cairn on the beach.
Tiring but as I had felt terribly depressed this morning it cleared the air.
I am not really looking forward to tomorrow which is the memorial for my sister.
Perhaps when it is over I will feel better.

A nice walk always lifts my spirits, too, Penny on days when I'm feeling low. Hugs to you, and wishing you strength for tomorrow.
