Camping Holidays continued!!

Here we are crossing the clapper bridge at Tarr Steps....

We loved bounding through the woods chasing pheasants - they were
EVERYWHERE! They make such a silly noise! Here is Gertrude up high on a bank
in the 'pheasant woods'.
The camper could be pretty cosy!


We went to Dunkery Beacon on Exmoor - it was a long old
trudge to get there but worth it for the view. It was the perfect clear day
with brilliant blue skies!


Everywhere we went it was so pretty - the golden light and fallen leaves
really set us off don't you think?

One day we had lunch sitting under this great oak tree - in the photo mummy is
giving me some of her lunch, lucky old me!

Driving across Exmoor - the little camper was great and
never let us down.

We even had got a new wax jacket each - we have never owned a coat before,
but it was really cold so we needed them! Gertrude looks rather dashing wearing
her new coat and daddy's flat cap!

The new coats being tested out!

Our little van winding her way along.....
Gertrude (winking!) and mummy sitting in the VW van -
we were sad to say goodbye to her at the end of our little holiday!


Until the next holiday.......
Love Molly and Gertrude

More fantastic pics! I love that last pic of Gertrude winking.

Did you get a pheasant? They are stupendously stoooopid and just asking for trouble, methinks.

I love your new coats, too. They have that practical, rugged quality just right for rugged Dales like us. I might have to write to Santa.

We were down your way the other day for a walk, in Ashclyst Forest. We must meet up there for a dash around.

Great pics - girls, at least you had a good time. It's a lovely time of year too! The wax jackets are the best - I have one and I've heard talk of Mindy getting one for when we are away in the Caravan over Christmas!!

Glad you're back safe and sound though.

Next time, would your mummy & daddy mind taking another Dale along? I could be your security guy, or I could cook... whatever.

You look great in your jackets. And, Gertrude, that flat hat was MADE for you.

It almost felt like I got to go with you on vacation. Thanks for the invitation to peek in on your holiday.

Goober love,
Stanley
