Me: Your coat is very shiny, Nell.

Nell: It’s the sea water. You should try it.

Me: It’s a bit too cold for me. Harriet seems to like it.

Nell: She is doing well but David is a little more hesitant.

Me: Girl Power.

Nell: Are we back in 1991? 

Me: I’m just saying that you girls are braver than Dave.

Nell: Yes. And you.

Me: But Mutley is braver than any of us. He strides into those waves like Neptune, God of the Sea.

Nell: Have you been drinking?

Me: Of course not but The Mutt is so brave.

Nell: Mutley is a 14 year old Patterdale quietly enjoying his new life by the sea. 

Me: Yes.

Nell: Get a grip.

Me: Sorry.

Nell: Neptune. Good grief!

Me: He’s my Neptune, Nell.

Nell: I know.
