Dog Mobile

This lovely dog, who I shall name ‘Henry the Basset Hound’, loves his owners small tractor, especially for all the trips around the shows they visit.  Well he does only have little legs 🙂

Taken at one of the many country shows we visited in 2106

An April Bike Ride

 

Around the outskirts of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire, is great for bike riding.  Apart from the really good bike routes, the terrain is mostly flat.  We try and take the caravan to Ferry Meadows Caravan Park each April and have at least one twenty mile bike trip…..which in truth only happens once a year and this year it didn’t happen.  Although we did take the bikes all the way to Scotland this year, to ride on some of the Islands, but it rained so much, it just never happened, they didn’t come of the bike rack.  So while sorting through the endless amount of photos, I found last April’s bike ride, 2016 and as it was the only one we have managed to achieve in two years……I am going to post it, to remind myself how nice it is to ride a bike.  My husband pulls a cart on the back of his bike for the dogs, as little dogs tire after a few miles, and as we now have four dogs, its better for them to travel in style.  Hopefully the photos will show you a little of the lovely countryside around Peterborough.  We also stopped off at Ferry Meadows and Orton Mere stations to watch the steam train on the Nene Valley Railway.  Finally three little dogs, we had another dog just after our break, back to the van for a well earned drink.

 

The Passing of Summer

 I’m having a lot of difficulty in realising that Autumn is really here.  I love this time of year, but I am thinking that we didn’t really have much of summer this year.  I know we had a very hot late spring, but then it only seems like there were, just odd summer days dotted here and there.  Even looking back at my photos, we seem to have had more dull days, than hot beautiful sunny ones…..I know we should go to hot places for our holidays, well we did this year, the French Riviera, but it still managed to rain, although most of the time is was lovely hot sunshine.  So just a few late summer photos, to say farewell until next summer, when we do it all over again, but please, just a little less rain 🙂  Still…… I have an awful lot of sunny French photos to post, if I ever get around to sorting them out 🙂

Once Upon A Time……..

Once upon a time there was a young airman…… ha ha that’s all you get 🙂  I took this photo wondering if this gentleman had been an airman…..once upon a time.  

Taken on a visit, July 2017, to see the Shuttleworth Collection, at Old Warden Aerodrome, in Bedfordshire, where, there is a wonderful collection of vintage airplanes.  There are also vintage vehicles, and a beautiful garden, I will post about them all later.
