THE DRAGON WHO COULD SWIM
 
Once upon a time there was a mystical water dragon named Neptune. Neptunes scales were as blue as the sky and sparkled like diamonds. His wings were golden like the sun and he had a really long tail with red razor spikes.
 
One day it was glorious weather the sun was so bright and golden it made the crystal clear blue sea sparkle like diamonds. This is where Neptune spent all his time as Neptune couldn’t fly.
Neptune spent all of his time watching the dragons soaring through the bright blue sky. There was one dragon in particular that would make fun of Neptune. His name is Arrow. He is a red dragon with a huge tail that is shaped like an arrow. He would always fly around Neptune picking on him. This made Neptune sad.
 
Neptune was swimming along one day and noticed movement under the surface then all of a sudden a magical mermaid appeared. Oh why are you so sad said the mermaid. Neptune explained about his problem of not being able to fly and how the other dragons picked on him. The mermaid carefully listened and came up with a solution. Neptune she said at the bottom of the ocean lies a magical emerald that has magical powers. It’s is the most beautiful emerald you will ever see greener then can be. Becareful down there as the water is dark and murky.
 
Neptune thanked the mermaid and dived straight under. The whole time Arrow had over heard the whole thing and wanted the emerald for him self he also dived into the ocean. Neptune noticed that Arrow was following him. Neptune had an advantage as he could only swim he was the better swimmer so was also faster. Arrow got lost in the murky waters. Neptune swam though all the colourful sea life ducking and diving until he came across the emerald. The mermaid was right it is the most beautiful emerald.
 
Neptune grabbed the emerald and headed back up to the surface where is was met by the mermaid. Well done Neptune said the mermaid now make your wish. Neptune wished he could fly and in that second the emerald shattered into pieces and landed on Neptunes wings. Neptune began to flap his wings, he looked at the mermaid and she was getting smaller he realised he was in the air. I’m flying I’m flying said Neptune he was so excited. He thanked the mermaid and soared through the air to meet the other dragons that’s when he noticed Arrow sulking.
 
Neptunes life was complete he was so happy. Every now and again tho he would still go for a swim.

A picture of me and Callum taking our neighbour's dog for a walk.  We are doing this every day as well as doing Joe Wicks workout every morning at 9am. Our neighbour's dog Dusty loves her walks and usually goes two to three times a day. Her owner takes her first thing in the morning, and now we are taking her later in the day. We practice being safe.  We call our neighbour and she leaves the lead and doggy bags at the end of the drive, then when we appear outside she lets Dusty out and we put the lead on and away we go. Then likewise when we get back, I take the lead off Dusty leave at the end of the drive and she walks back into house.
