Day 2 at Burton Bradstock and we were raring to go!And I think a little brave of the hoomans to bring along Mini Tyke, just three, on the walk.It’s not like they are experienced walkers but city folks! Mummy remembers well the time we were lost in the Yorkshire Dales but she was promised that this is really a straightforward walk – no following a stream that seems to end and miles and miles of stone walls but no directional signs.
This time it is the big wide sea to our left. So off we went … Little Tyke got into a grump early on and he was lagging behind So I had to pull him along. Oh, soon we found out it wasn’t just walking through fields Before you know it we were going down steep slopes and equally steep steps going up And we even went down all the way to the beach at one point and found little fishes washed up ashoreHmmm, they smell fishy delish! Kai picked some of them up – for supper, he said.Think NOT! shouted his mother. LOL!
Finally! Finally! Two hours later, we arrived at West Bay! But not before going down a very steep cliffside!
We found the Beach Cafe and the hoomans all had something to eat The adults had vino!And the children had ice cream!And guess which one I liked better?And as they sat eating in the glorious English summer sun, they looked back at where they had come down and thought – WOW!That was a pretty steep slope for the city hoomans big and small to have come down!
May’s comment: What a lovely walk! And we made it without getting lost – and I was the troop leader! We were lucky with the weather – beautiful English summer – sun was out but not too hot. As for Darcy, she was on a lead the whole time, just didn’t want an incident to happen. She was brilliant! She walked by my side, watching me as I gingerly made my way down steep slopes and waited as I climbed the steps. Don’t think it would have been easy if I had them both.
