Haunting Halloween!

I find Halloween so tiring so like to rest up before the big night.  Here I am having a nap before I went out on my broomstick.

Ready for take off!

It has been a little bit windy lately so we have had some very blustery walks up on the hillock.

Ready for take off

Like my younger days

I'm stuck

Windy millars

The bandana made me do it!

Skull and crossbones

L took me for a walk the other day and let me off the lead up the footpath to the fields....trouble was I got a sniff of some food as we walked past some houses earlier and thought I had better check it out.  So.....I about turned and wandered down the footpath, crossed the road and followed by nose. 

I could hear L shouting at me, but there is no stopping me when my nose tells me I must go.  I obviously hid quite well because it took her a little while to find me in someones front garden with my face in a black bin liner.  I tried to evade capture, but she lured me in by waving a bonio biscuit at me, sucker!

To my surprise we didn't then go back up the footpath, but I had a lead walk unfair...but I would do it all again!  Plus I blame it on the skull and cross bones bandana L made me wear!

A gallon of Broadside!

Admiring a gallon of broadside, heaven!

We have been on our hols again to Southwold and it was woof-tastic!  I had no idea where we were going, but I knew something was up as lots of things were being packed in bags while I was trying to have my morning snooze. 

After a few hours in the car we arrived at the beach and I was soooooo excited.  I knew we must be staying as the car was fit to bursting so I was a very happy doodle. 

Lovely, lovely Southwold

We went to check out our home for the week, a lovely cottage near the golf course.  There was even room to fit in my bed between the living room and the kitchen.  We then went for a wander down the high street and L popped into a shop called the Black Olive delicatessen which almost made me drool as it smelt so good. We then headed back to the cottage for lunch (I got a little bit).

Anyway the whole week was brilliant from start to finish.  I made sure I got L & C up really early every morning for a run on the golf course....I set my secret watch for 5.20am every day!  They had a torch so were fine and even did a bit of star gazing.  Then it was breakfast and back to bed for a bit. 

The beach was paw-tastic and we were on it every day, as well as a visit to Aldeburgh where I got very spooked by a gurgling sea monster (which turned out to be a water pipe, but you can't be too careful). 

This sand gets everywhere!

Now you see me...

Now you don't



An amble at Aldeburgh

I was even allowed in the pub a couple of times in the afternoon (between their food serving times of course).  I think I could easily become a pub dog, but not sure L & C agree.

L & C went on some adventures too and climbed to the top of the lighthouse (113 steps).  They told me lots of interesting facts, one being that the light can be seen from 26 nautical miles away.

113 steps!

They also did the Adnams distillery tour and found out how vodka, gin and whiskey is made.  Plus there were the obligatory tastings afterwards.  

It was a truely lip-smacking holiday and I can't wait to go again.
