Life’s a beach

Rubí & Matilde @ the beach 26JAN14

Yesterday was the first trip to the beach in 2014 with donkeys. We arrived home late and exhausted from our efforts, so I did not blog on this yesterday.

I am indulging myself on Monday evening instead of marking geography exercise books. Nice to remember yesterday’s walk, with temperatures reaching 26 degrees.  It was the first time I had walked Matilde and Rubí to the beach together since 2011.  After that,I have always walked each of them with their foals.

Here are the two mothers walking together again.  They are a lovely pair and are well bonded, even after the two and a half years of competitive child-rearing!

Matilde bites Rubí and says, "Remember when we stood here three years ago, before we had the foals?"

Walking home in the shadow of donkeys. It doesn't get any better than this.

About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have two blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog.

  1. I do like donks. They are so pretty and they have crosses on their backs. Lovely pics 🙂
