The Forest of Dean

Hi All!

Me, Mum and Dad had a little holiday in the Forest of Dean, which is just on the border with Wales. We went camping in a Forestry Commission Site called Bracelands. From the site you can walk for miles in the forest, and on our first day we walked down to the river Wye. We found some nice carved seats for Mum and Dad to have a rest.

Conquering Biblins Bridge

We decided to cross the river. Now, the first time we came here I was only 6 months old and I was very scared of going on this bridge. I’m two and a half now so here is how it went …

… not bad, but towards the middle of the bridge my belly was nearly on the floor. This is a really squeaky, swaying bridge, but we made it over to the other side. Things went much better on the way back …

It was a lovely sunny day and we could see a long way ahead.

I’m off the lead most of the time.

This is the coolest place in hot weather …

… under the caravan!!!

Another day we went to Symmonds Yat. It’s a great big mountain rock with a fabulous view over the river Wye. The weather had started to get a little damper by now …

… and over the next days it really deteriorated …

Me and Mum just cuddled up inside the caravan and stayed nice and dry.

The weather turned really windy and wet and we watched people’s awnings being destroyed so Mum and Dad decided it was time to come home – 2 days early. We’ll explore the Brecon Beacons another time.

Tell you what, it was lovely to come home. Hope you all have nicer weather than us at the moment!

Bye for now.

    G’day Finni,
    What a shame the weather turned horrid for your holiday. You look like you were really enjoying it too, well except for the bridge crossing hee hee. I’d be totally freaked by that. I hope you get to go back there soon with sunshine next time.
    Have a great weekend. Oh it’s raining here at the moment.

    Hello Finni

    It seems ages since me met you already!

    What a shame you had to come home early because it was so wet! Your caravan looked very cosy though!
    We are going to Wales at the end of the month, hopefully the clouds will have stoppped crying by then.

    That caravan looks so cosy. You are so lucky to have been off on holiday – camping and walking is the best! My mum says she has been up Symonds Yat too a long long time ago. That bridge looks pretty scary.
    Lots of love from Molly and Gert xx

    What a shame the weather turned bad and you had to come home two whole days early. It does look like a gorgeous place and that you had a wonderful time right up til it got icky.

    Hanging out on the couch with the momma is one of the best activities of all though.

  6. Aw, bless you on that bridge Finni! Ma was laughing at you, mean woman.

    Ma has been to Symond’s Yat. It’s not too far from us, and is on the way to see Cassidy’s breeders, so maybe we’ll have an explore there sometime.

    Hey Finni, thanks for showing us your holiday!
    We loved hearing your claws clipity clipity over the bridge. You know, I did wonder if you were in the UK Wales when you mentioned hot weather? I guess it’s cool for us BUT too wet for our people to keep coming out with us, what’s the use of having them if we can’t take them out???
    Love George
