Cows on Tour

I had something completely different planned for my blog post today, but this morning DHGraham returned from his morning walk with William to say there had been cows on the esplanade!  

Luckily he had the presence of mind to grab his camera and do a quick video - plus a little voice over chatting to William!  

These cows must have decided to leave their field high up on Potters Hill and go down to the beach for the day!

After husband and William returned home we could see in the distance that the Police were on hand (2 cars) plus the farmer to herd the cows back up the hill to their field.....wonder if they enjoyed their outing!

  1. I've never seen the cows coming along like that before either. They do look a little worried though. I am glad to hear the y got back safely.

  11. In many parts of India it would be news if cows did not share our roads. Many of them are not tended at all. They just find their way back home at dusk.
