Douglas Diary Autumn Hols.
Whistlestop tour of Northeast part one
Well, we have not yet started our cruise proper but I thought you might like to know where I am and what I am doing.
We left our family in Kent and drove in my short kennel for four hours to King’s Bromley I slept and we just popped in on my long kennel for 24 hours. We didn’t go anywhere except for a short cruise outside of the Marina principally to give it a good washing. This was just a stopover.
My pets spent the day making sure everything was shipshape, ready for our return in a few days. Much of this they spent on the roof and I lay on the grass watching them scrubbing away.
All that was the day before yesterday for we are on our way north to visit our friend Jim for a couple of days on which I am going to report.
Yesterday I slept for four hours while my bearded one drove my short kennel to visit our friends Jim and Jackie who live near Newcastle in a village called Chester-le-Street we are going to stay with them for a couple of days and explore, I have never been this far north! I hope I don’t get a nose bleed!
Lots of walks ahead.
My friend Jim and my bearded one got me up quite early for the first walk of the day. We walked along a lovely bridle path Very interesting smells, ‘saw a rabbit, missed it but I got my feet muddy. I had to be washed when we got back and the water was very hot and I was not pleased.
Jim has a short kennel just like mine and we all jumped in this, they sat on the comfy seats, I was in the boot, we drove to explore the coast of Northumberland our first stop was a lovely village called Amble this is considered to be the friendliest Port in the UK. It is a very pretty walled harbour with fishing boats that were not bobbing about as they were on the mud, the tide was out. I think some of the fleet must have been at sea unable to get back.
See my photo today.
We are off to another place now and so Miami starting another page so today is continued…….
