I am assuming that you all are aware of the popular celebrity Dora the Explorer and her nemesis Swiper, if not your children/grandchildren certainly are. upload_2014-11-15_21-16-1.png
Today went for a first training walk for the Spring plans, lovely autumn weather here, 25C, first narcissus upload_2014-11-15_21-24-44.png flowers blooming
when I suddenly met Swiper! upload_2014-11-15_21-17-39.png
As I paused for a rest Swiper popped out and tried to Swipe my pilgrims hat! upload_2014-11-15_21-18-37.png

Lucky for me, I noticed she was not Swiper but my Granddaughter, Shemesh, waiting for me to arrive at the picnic spot. Cost me half my sandwich and my hat was returned! upload_2014-11-15_21-20-54.png
What a life we pilgrims lead, what an adventure!
