Being On Holiday is Hard Work!

Hello Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Yesterday we were in 'Engineering Mode' 'cos The Missus has been 'Destruction Testing' the fold up table in the caravan and we can now say, without any doubt that, given the right number of whacks with the extra large container of 'Distress Ink', the table will fall off the table mount and come crashing to the floor!

So, yesterday it was 'Hunt the Screws' and stuff in the local town then back for some drilling and banging with hard object and mumbling of many curses!

I was doing the inspection job after the table was reinstalled!

OK, it passes the 'Shove Test' so we will give it a try!

Holly Chops was on 'Guard Duty' and after learning from Archie Babe on the best positions to take up when doing guard duty, she made a pretty good go of guarding the caravan!

I can be alert in an instance, trust me!
 Today we decided that a trip to see the local sights was in order and set off for Durdle Door. We were expecting a castle thingy with a big wooden door but when we got there it was nothing but a lump of cliff with a hole in it!

Shut That Door!
 It was a bit of a hike up and down the cliff to see that and to be honest, the ice cream cone that Holly and I shared tasted just great!

Next it was Lulworth Cove. Now this is a natural harbour that has been worn away by the tides and now looks like a super safe harbour with a very 'Touristy' village on the shore. Old Two Legs reckons the car park was almost as big as the village and judging by the cost of parking, it was more than likely the biggest money earner around!
Pretty village with the obligatory stream heading towards the bay!

Almost all the buildings were restaurants or gift shops!
Like Durdle Door, I got a swim in the warm water! Holly decided that she was better off sitting on the harbour wall with TM and trying to mug anyone who looked like they might have food!
Nothing like getting your paws wet!

 On the way back to the car we stopped off at one of the restaurants and got some scampi and chips and a sausage.

The scampi was for TM & OTL and the sausage was for Holly and I but it was such a small sausage that after we had finished it, the scampi look just too delicious to leave un tasted!

Tomorrow OTL wants to visit Corfe Castle 'cos he hasn't been there for a thousand years!

See you all tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.
