When I got up yesterday morning daddy said that we would go to the sea . Woof? Didn’t he have to go to work yesterday? Really? Hooray!!
It is because this is my birthday week isn’t it? It is special week isn’t it, daddy?
Daddy bought his new gadget (satnav) last week so we arrived at Lepe country park in 1 hour and 30 minutes. If he hadn’t it would have taken a lot longer, by the way.
Woof!! All I could see was the sea!!
Daddy tried to get Silky and me in the water but the water was moving lively and there was lots of seaweed so we didn’t know what to do except barking.
Mummy told daddy not to force them to swim and daddy was nodding. It is true. You shouldn’t force should you? When you learn how to swim you should feel you want to shouldn’t you?
Daddy seemed to give up, and then we walked along the beach. Daddy took photos of us here and there and we came to a quieter and cleaner part of the beach.
Again daddy got in the water and called us. Even though there was no seaweed it was the same thing for me and Silky. We only barked at daddy.
Then, what do you think he did?
He carried Silky, walked in the water and put Silky in the water!! Silky swam very well and it seemed she enjoyed it. Well, she had swum before in Windsor Great Park to get ducks hadn’t she?
Now, daddy came back and carried me and walked into the water. I was half excited and half scared. Can I swim like Silky? Or am I going to sink in the water?
Woof!! I could swim!! It was fun!!
We repeated this a couple of times and our swimming lesson finished. After this swimming lesson we walked around the park a little and mummy and daddy had ice cream and left the sea.
Can we have swimming lesson again, daddy? Then, Silky and I should get pretty bikinis, shouldn’t we?
