The campsite had lots of sheep, chickens and a few pigs. They were all very friendly and the eggs were very tasty.
This is one of the tups….he was a very lucky boy!
It was such a lovely day we decided to sunbathe
but Jim got confused and sat in the shade
Scratchy even went on his own little adventure
Then we went for a walk to Gullane Bay, which was a little bit busier than the beaches in the Outer Hebrides
It was a very nice bay when we got away from the crowds. It was about 6pm, so we were surprised it was still busy
Mummy took a sneaky photo through the dunes and we ran through and scared the people sitting on the other side. Hehe!
The view out over the bay was really very pretty
Jim got a little bit excited and would not stop rolling, to the amusement of a little girl. Her mummy explained that he had an itch he was trying to scratch. No he was just being Jim!
On Wednesday daddy had to go to Newcastle for work, so after we dropped him off at the train station, we went to Dunbar beach but there was a slight issue…can you spot it?
The tide was coming in and the bridge was inaccessible. The view over the bridge was lovely, but people were having to swim across and I wasn’t going to be doing that!
Mummy decided to take us along the John Muir walk instead, as we had already paid for parking and were very excited about going for a walk! Jim kept on looking back for the beach though.
On Thursday, Jim decided to make the most of daddy being away and stay in bed!
When Jim eventually got up, mummy took us to Yellowcraig Beach which was lovely, although mummy spotted a kite on the way down to the beach, I somehow missed it. So we went down to explore the beach
It was great, so mummy let us off to play for a while, but then the kite appeared on the beach and mummy had to grab me quickly! Mummy decided we had had enough excitement and took us home before I killed the kite. She has no faith. I only kill the kite if the little girl crashes it. It’s a fair game, that no one else knows we are playing!
When we got home we had cuddles together with mummy, just in case she was missing daddy, we thought we would cheer her up
On Friday we went back to Dunbar beach to try and cross the bridge. The tide was out, but unfortunately the bridge was made of metal grating which we don’t like walking on, so we still couldn’t cross it.
So we did the John Muir walk again and tried to get to the beach from the other end but failed! Then in the evening, we went to pick daddy up from the station. We were very pleased to see him, but disappointed that we would have less space on the bed again!
On Saturday I was quite tired so had a lie in
Then we found the only hill in the area, Berwick Law, and climbed up it. It wasn’t that far to be honest, but the views were amazing
This was a fake whale jaw bone that replaced the last real bones in 2007. There have been the bones on the hill since 1709, and the last real bones had been in place since 1933, but had rotted away in 2005, hence the replicas were put in place in 2007.
There was also the remains of an Iron age hill fort
On Sunday we packed up, said goodbye to the sheep and pigs and headed off for another adventure. Until next time, Love & Licks, Rosie xxxx
