The mist felt like it was enveloping me in a cold and clammy grip, as I walked along the paved walkway wondering who else was out there. Proceeding onward, I met a British couple who remarked that they felt right at home with this misty weather. We had a few pleasant words and they continued on their way as I went on mine. Presently, I saw a figure looming out of the heavy mist and a large shape beside him. As he approached, the figure beside him came into focuses and I realized that it was a huge dog, perhaps a great Dane or some other large breed. It turned out that this young fellow was a dog walker and came down each day to walk the dog for a friend. He said that he gets plenty of exercise by walking dogs and he certainly had a way with that particular dog. We parted, after a few minutes of chatting, he and the dog to continue their walk and me to continue mine!
