When one least expects it.
We walked to the bog when I came home and Bertil decided he wanted to follow us like most times but he complained the whole way. I thought that maybe wild hogs were nearby but at the same time I was pretty sure they would disappear since I shouted a lot after Sune and Orvar. They thought we walked way to slow and if there were any hogs nearby they better stay close.
I noticed that even if we have lots of flies right now it’s still much less than we usually have this time of summer and very few deer flies and horse flies. I guess it’s the late and dry spring that is responsible for that and I’m grateful. I haven’t even brought my mosquito hat when walking to the bog. Come to think of it, we have very little mosquitos too. Normally I keep the fly swatter close all day by now but there’s just no need for it right now. That however will change after the rainfalls we’ve had lately. I guess there are lots of midges too but they don’t like me anyway so I never notice if we have any.
We stopped at the peninsula like we always do and neither I nor the dogs noticed anything but Bertil complained loudly. I turned around towards him and that was when I looked in to the eyes of a big moose🙂 It stood perhaps twenty meters away from us (much the same in yards) and I think he wasn’t sure if he should run away from us or perhaps scare us by running towards us🙂 Thankfully I catched Sune before he saw the moose because when I later let him go he was so interested in all places the moose had walked that I thought of putting the leash on again🙂
It’s time to make a pot of tea and something to eat. Those warm sandwiches I made yesterday was so delicious that I think I’ll make the same today, perhaps I’ll add some curry to them. Now it’s only three more days before vacation🙂
