A walk and a hike


Dear Reader,

So this is how it started, Dada and I picked up J from the train station at Exeter.  The next day, we showed him around our little village by the sea.  Like I said in my postcard from Bristol, J is from America.  I call him MY J, because I like to call things “mine”, though I’m not really sure that he is a “thing” just like MY Peppa Pig lunch box or MY DVDS.

Anyway, so the next day I wore the shirt MY J gave me (among other things) and I thought that it would be a good idea to show him around my neighbourhood.  That’s what we did, we went down the village


That’s me eating ice-cream while me and my mum waited for MY J and Dada outside the Witch’s Museum.   She didn’t think it was a good idea for me to go inside.  


We walked up by the coast-gaurd’s hut on our way back.  I got tired from all the walking so here I am waiting for them to catch up with me.  Sometimes, grown-ups are so slow!


The next day we took MY J up for a hike to the next village called Tintagel.  It was a very, very, very long walk! 


 I actually had to give MY baby a piggy-back-ride because she was also too tired to walk!


Dada says this rock formation is called the Lady’s Window.  My mum got all hysterical when my Dada took me to look at it up-close.  She said it made her knees go jelly.  I don’t know why she said that when there was obviously no jelly around!  Sometimes my mum says the silliest things!


The grown-ups were all saying how lovely it was.  I couldn’t understand what the fuss was all about!  I like it when you can actually go near the water (not admire it!) and play with sand.


I walked that path all the way down and up again.


Now you know why I just had to stake a snooze on the bench up there.  There were also other hikers resting at the top of the hill.

It was indeed a lovely day and warm too!  My mum actually had to put some sunblock on me.  I don’t really like that stuff, it’s too sticky.  But mum said I need it to protect my skin from the sun.  Later during the walk, MY J asked if he could have some too.  He said he wasn’t prepared for this kind of weather in England.  He said he only brought rain gear!  It’s been raining this week, I guess if MY J was still here, he’d be happy that he brought all his rain gear stuff.  Mum says summer is gone and autumn is here.  She said it’s time to take out all our winter stuff from hiding.  I didn’t even know they were hiding!  

See yah!

  1. Beautiful Tintagel, I know it well, your photos show just how beautiful the coastline is there. It’s a stunning walk and I hope J enjoyed his visit here? T did very well to keep up on the walk! Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

    • Yes, he did. Thanks! Though he said he wasn’t expecting too much sun and actually had to use some of T’s sunblock.

    • Thanks. Yes, we did and the best part is that it was a really warm day … Not like today which is cold, dark and dreary.
