Bunty Goes to Devon

dsc01706Hello I have been on another adventure, this time to Devon to a place called Combe Martin.

On my first day I decided to hop to Ilfracombe, it was very hard, there were lot’s of hills and slippery steps and the weather was very hot.

I hopped up a very steep hill and then along a road because the coastal path had fallen down, then I had to hop through a campsite. There weren’t any people on the site because it was closed, so I couldn’t find anyone to chat to. When I got back onto the coastal path I had to be very careful because it was so slippery, after a long hop I came to a very big steep set of steps, I hopped to the top and my little legs hurt so much, I was very pleased to see a rock to sit on, there was a people man and lady on there but they said they were just leaving, the people man told me there were seals playing in the sea. So I sat for a little while and watched the seals, they were too far away to talk to. When I felt better I started my hop again, down some very slippery steps and up a small path. Then I met Larry the llama, I don’t think it  was his name because the llama’s on the site I was staying at all told me their names were Larry too. He said I looked hot and I told him I had had a very long hop, he said I should shave off my fur! He had just had his fur shaved off and now he felt very cool, I think I would rather be hot. He was busy eating the grass and didn’t seem to interested he chatting so I hopped on. By the end I was very tired and all I wanted was a carrot and a sleep.

My next hop was to the beach at  Saunton, it is a very pretty beach and very big, I nearly got washed away by the sea! I then hopped on back to Ilfracombe to look at Verity, she is a very big lady, not a real lady. She is made of bronze and stainless steel. One side of her looks like a lady with a big tummy, but if you hop around the other side you can see inside her to bones and yucky things and the big tummy is a baby.  I then hopped back to have my carrot before bed.

My next hop was to Quince Honey Farm, this was so much fun, there were lot’s of bee hives to look at and lot and lots of bees. It had lots of information boards telling all about how the bees make the honey and what the people do with the honey after. I listen to a talk about bumble bees and one about bee hives and looked at all the creepy crawly animals. The bees were very busy and buzzing all the time, it sounded lovely.


My last hop was to Hartland Quay it is very pretty. I watched the sea for a long time as it crashed on the rocks, then I hopped into the musuem. The musuem had lots of pictures of ships that had been wrecked, and things that had come form the ships, and there were lots of stories to read. I felt really sorry for all the people who had been on the ships and had drown, but I did enjoy looking at all the things that had been brought up from the seabed.



This adventure has made me very tired so I think I will take a little rest now

Lots of love

Bunty Goes On A Book Hunt

DSC01500Hello, I have been on another adventure, this time to Birmingham. I like going to Birmingham because I get to ride on the train.
I went to see if I could find all the book benches on the book bench trail. They were dotted all over Birmingham, so it was a very big hop and I didn’t get to see them all, some people were sitting on some of them and I was too tired to go to the Jewellery Quarter.

I hopped off the train at Moor Street station and hopped straight to Waterstones which is a very big book shop, there were so many books I could have stayed there all day, but I had come to find the benches not look at books. I had to hop up and down all the floors until I found the first one which was called The Day The Crayons Quit it had big crayons drawn on it. The next one was called The Magical World of Reading and it was all dark colours with animals, I liked the lion.  I hopped to another floor and found We All Shine Together, that one had lot’s of little pictures in it, there was Cat in the Hat, Gruffalo, The Hobbit, Mr Men and lot’s of other ones. Then I found Animals in Children’s Literature, I couldn’t see the bench very well as teddy and bunny were resting on it and they were very tired and didn’t want to move, they had found all of the benches and told me it was a lot of hopping.  I couldn’t find The Marvel-ous Comic Bookbench.

I then hopped to Millennium Point which is a great big museum, I have never been inside the museum I have only ever been in the open part, I must try and visit it. There were 11 benches here and when I had looked at them I had to hop to The Custard Factory and Zellig. I thought I could try custard at the factory, but they don’t make it there any more, it’s now all pretty shops and works of art. There were 11 benches here too.

The next stop was Grand Central where there was one by the food court, but people were sat on it so I couldn’t see it and  in a place called Foyles and two were in John Lewis. The first one Bad-End-Night was easy to find, but the second one Take a leaf out of our book took me ages to find. When I was just about to give up I spotted it hiding by some big beanbags and a fluffy rug.

Then I hopped to a place called the Mailbox to look for the BBC. I didn’t think they would be able to put a bench in a postbox because I have seen people put letters into a postbox and they are not very big. But the mailbox is a big building with shops in it. I found the BBC and looked at the benches and had a little hop around to look at all the other things in there, they had a dalek and the TARDIS.

Next it was a big hop to the Library, there are lot’s of floors so it took me a long time to find all of the benches. I had to use an exculater  which made me feel all funny, I thought it was going to eat me when I got to the top, but it didn’t. The last place I hopped to was the Museum where I had to find 24 benches.

I felt very tired by the time I found the last one, I had been hopping from 9.30 until 4. So I hopped back onto the train and came home.

Keep hopping

Love Bunty

Bunty Visits Pembridge Again

DSC01115 Hello, I have been on an adventure, I went back to Pembridge. I have been there before, so I went to see if Daisy duck still lived there and she did. She showed me her babies, she was very proud of them and they were lovely, but very tiny. Daisy told me that the geese and the swans had babies too. Gordon goose brought his babies over for me to see, they were very fluffy. They asked me what I wanted to do on this visit and I told them I want to see something and have a nice hop. Daisy told me to go to Hampton Court Castle and Gordon told me the hop from the village to Eardisland was a nice hop. I thanked them and went for a hop to the village before bed.

The next day I hopped to Hampton Court Castle, I paid for my ticket and had time for a quick look around a little part of the garden and some of the sculptures before I went for the tour of the castle. The guide was called Mike and he was very nice, he took us around the castle and the grounds, telling us all about the history of the castle and some funny stories. He told us it takes a lot of money to keep a castle so the people who had owned it a long time ago had sold lots of the furniture and pretty things until there was nothing left. In the 1970s someone brought it and decided to make it nice again,  most of it is not real, a brick wall is just paint and so are the very posh mahogany walls in another room , and the shields on the walls come from a film set. It still looked very nice.

When the tour had finished, I took out my map and decided to do the long river hop, I passed cows in a field but they were too far away to talk to and then I saw two partridges but they were too busy fighting to talk. I hopped along a grassy path and through buttercups then onto a dirt track, I could hear lots of birds but I couldn’t see any. When I had done the long river hop I decided to do the short river hop. The short hop took me closer to the river and I saw a little waterfall, at the end of this trail were some swings, so I had a little play.

I then hopped around the gardens which are very pretty, there are pools and lots of flowers with lots of very busy bees collecting the nectar to make honey. There was also a maze with a tower in the middle, I had a hop in the maze and found the tower, I hopped to the top and could see all over the gardens and the people trying to find their way around the maze. When I hopped back down I noticed more steps going down under the tower, so I hopped down them and they led to a dark tunnel. I hopped through the tunnel very slowly because I couldn’t see and came out in a sunken garden, which was lovely. There’s a little waterfall which you can squeeze behind, so I did, I got very wet but it was a very hot day so it didn’t matter. To get out of the garden I had to hop up some stepping stones which had water all around them, I though I might fall in but I didn’t.  I next hopped around the gardens again because they were so pretty.

The sky started to get very dark and little spots of rain started to fall so I thought I had better start back to the caravan, I was feeling tired anyway and I had been  there 6 hours.


The next day I decided to do the hop Gordon had told me about, so I hopped into the village down to the river and onto the trail.  I hopped along by the river for a little way and met a beautiful dragonfly who told me his name was Daniel, but everyone called him Dan. We had a chat about how lovely and warm the weather was, I told him I was on a hop to Eardisland. He told me he wasn’t going to Eardisland because he was afraid the baby swans would eat him if they got the chance. He was quite happy playing by this part of the river where there were only cows. We said good-bye and I hopped on.

I had to hop through a big field until I came to a little bridge with a gate at each end, I made sure I shut the gates because they are to stop the animals from getting out and hurting themselves.  I then had to hop through two very big corn fields which were very dry, so dry the earth was cracking, I thought I might fall down one of the cracks and get lost under ground, but I was just being silly.  I hopped and hopped and it was getting very hot, soon I came to a very big stile, so I hopped underneath it. I hopped through another field and back onto the riverside it was much cooler here, but it didn’t last long because then the trail led back into another field and the hot sunshine with its big fields of buttercup all bright yellow and shiny.

It wasn’t long before I came into Eardisland, so I hopped to see the swans and their babies. They were playing in the top half of the river so I had to look over the bridge to see them, they looked so cute.

It had been a long time since my last visit so I went to look at the church again and around the church yard. Part of the church yard has been left to get all over grown for the little animals to live in and for the bees and butterflies, but not dragonflies, because there isn’t any water and dragonflies like to fly over water. I then hopped down by the river to just sit and watch the river pass by and I found a weather cone, my people mommy told me that you can tell the weather with one, if it’s closed the weather will be wet, if it’s open the weather will be fine, the cone was wide open and the weather was very hot so it must be true.

I was very tired and thirsty so I hopped to Rita’s Tearoom and had a great big chocolate milkshake with ice-cream, that really cooled me down, ready for my big hop back to Pembridge  the caravan and bed

Keep Hopping

Bunty decides Not To go Out

Hello, I was going to go and have an adventure in the garden today before I wrote about my adventure in Pembridge, but my adventure was in the house watching the storm. It rained and rained, then there were big flashed of lightning and loud claps of thunder. I was a little bit scared but very excited at the same time. My people mommy told me that when she was little she used to be scared of the storms but now she loves a ‘really good storm.’ She told me that when she was little her grandad would tell her than the thunder was the coalman delivering the coal in heaven and the light was the angels looking for it with their flashlights. Then she explained that the coalman was a man that used to deliver coal for people to burn in their homes to keep warm because they didn’t have central heating. Coal looked like bricks and was dirty and dusty.

People mommy then explained that really the thunder was made when hot air hit cold air high up in the sky, Lightning is an electric current, bits of ice bump into each other as they move around in the clouds, this make  an electric charge. This fills the cloud up with electrical charges. The positive charges are at the top of the cloud and the negative charges at the bottom of the cloud. Then a positive charge  builds up on the ground underneath the cloud. The  electrical charge likes anything that sticks up, so  the lighting comes down out of the sky. It all sounds very complicated to me, I think I like her grandad’s story better.

Bunty Goes To The Luna Festival

DSC01064 Hello, I have been on another adventure, this time to a music festival called The Luna Festival. I was so excited, my people daddy said it was a hippy-dippy festival, my people brother told me it was a folk festival  and my people mommy said I should wear flowers around my head and she made me a new dress and a band with a flower for my head.


The festival was in a place called  Tanworth in Arden and was held in a big field. There were lots of stalls selling food, drink, clothes and lots of other pretty things, I had a quick hop around to have a look. Some of the people there had very pretty clothes and lots of flowers in their hair and glitter on their faces. I thought they looked beautiful.


It was nearly time for the first band so I hopped down to by the stage and found a place to sit. The first band was called The Mothers Earth Experiment, I liked them, then it was Flamingods they were good too, then Khruangbin I didn’t like them much. Next were  Morris dancers with black faces, the leader said it was so their families wouldn’t get embarrassed about them and everybody laughed. They were very good and the leader was very funny. The next band were called The Mariachis, I really liked them, they are a mexican band and they made everyone laugh and get up and dance and sing, everyone was smiling and clapping.  The next group was called Paradise Bangkok molam International, but I didn’t stay to watch them I was very hot and needed to have a little hop, so I went for a hop around the stalls and get a drink with fruit in it, it tasted very nice but it made my head feel funny. I didn’t know it had alcohol in it, alcohol is not for little bunnies.

I hopped back to the stage in time to see Matt Berry and the Maypoles, I thought they were going to dance because people dance around a Maypole, but they didn’t. They sang, I liked them too.

I was very very hot by this time so I hop to the back of the crowd and sat at the back of the field, I could still see the stage and hear the music, and it was fun because there was a big machine blowing bubbles and they were flying all over the people. The next band were called The Zombies, I got a bit scared because I thought Zombies were nasty monsters and I couldn’t workout why they would be at this nice happy festival. I was quite relived to see they were very nice people who just sang, not monsters at all.

Then it was time for The Procession, I got very excited about this, I had already looked at the bonfire in the shape of a big bird. First the Crowman, along with a very pretty lady led the way to the bonfire. There were a lot of dancing animals and a very tall lady and a band following him. He then said something I couldn’t hear because I was around the wrong side of the bonfire,  then the bonfire was lit by a man who could breath fire, I hope his month was OK, because I wouldn’t have wanted him to be hurt when he was being so helpful. The bonfire and all the dancing animals were to welcome the new Rose Moon, I liked that I had welcomed the new moon too.

I watched the bonfire for a while, the grass by the stage had started to fill up with lots and lots of people so I went back to where I had been before and I could see. I sat on a bench and watched a group call Super Furry Animals, but they weren’t animals at all, I think that would have been funny.  I turn around to watch some pretty lights on the wall and a very clever lady dancing with some hoops that lit up, it looked like magic.

I was a very tired bunny by the time everything had finished, I had been there 12 hours. That’s a long time for a little bunny but I was a very happy bunny, I have seen lot’s of nice things and lots of happy people, I can’t wait until next year.

Keep Hopping Love

Bunty Goes to Pentewan

I have been on another adventure, this time to a place called Pentewan in Cornwall. On the afternoon that I got there I hopped from the site into the village of Pentewan, I had to hop along St. Austell river where a lot of dogs were playing in the river, they didn’t want to stop and chat, they were having too much fun in the water. The river ran through a wood which was very pretty and I heard lots of birds but I couldn’t see any of them. When I got to the village I had a little look around, it is very pretty and has a little harbour, then I hopped to the beach which has some very big rocks all different colours, The sea was coming in so I couldn’t stay long, By the time I had hopped back through the woods I was very tired, so I had a carrot and went to bed.

My first full day was very busy, first of all I hopped to a beach called Hemmick beach to watch the big waves, they made a big roaring sound and big crashy bangy sounds as they hit the rocks. I was the only one on the beach, I had it all to myself, I hopped up and down and splashed in the sea.

Next I hopped along the St. Austell river again but this time the other way to St Austell. This time I had to hop along the river and through some woods and past a sewerage works which was very smelly. On this hop I met Spot the pig and The Girls who were chickens. First of all I talked to The Girls, that’s what they told me their names were when I asked them. They told me they lived in the big field with Spot and liked it there because they could watch the people walking past. Just then Spot came slowly walking up the field, Spot was a very big pig, I asked him if the chickens were really called The Girls and told me that when their people mommy came she called Spot and Girls so they must be. I wanted to go to the brewery where they make beer. I had to hop up a very big hill, and when I got there all the places on the tour had gone! So I just had a look at the museum, then hopped all the way back again.

Next I had a hop around a lovely little village called Mevagissey it has a lovely harbour with lots of boats. All the streets are really little and windy with lots of little shops, I brought my people brother a Cornish pasty with eyes, hee-hee it was very silly. I meet a cat called fluff who told me how she loved living by the sea and how sometimes the fishermen would give her bits of fish, then I hopped to another beach called Porthpean, I had this beach all to myself too. It had a little waterfall and lots of rock pools. I played at building fairy stacks and built one bigger than me.

On my way back to camp I hopped back to Pentewan beach to watch the army practicing with their landing ships, they are very big and it was very exciting, some of the ships had big ramps on the back and they dropped them down into the sea then big funny looking cars came out of the back, right into the sea! I enjoyed watching them, but it was only playing I don’t think I would like it if it was for real.

By this time I was very tired, so I hopped back for bed.

The next day I decided to hop to The Lost Gardens Of Hegelian, from the camp I had to hop up a very big hill to get there through lots of trees. The gardens are very big and made in lots of sections so first I went to look at the northern gardens, here I hopped around Flora’s garden, I looked at the mound which was just a big hill that you are not alone to hop on, the summer-house with its lovely little pool, the Crystal Grotto which wasn’t shiny at all, the wishing well, the flower garden but all the flowers were dying, the sundial garden with had a lovely big lawn, the Italian Garden had a pool too, my favorite was the vegetable garden, it had great big pumpkins and a very funny scarecrow. I then hopped on to see the hide, and the Emu’s and hopped down Sunken Lane which was very steep, it had warnings at the top telling you not to go down if you felt unwell, I felt fine so I hopped down and looked at the charcoal Klins, then I had to hop back up a hill to look at the Charcoal Sculpture. Next it was my favorite garden, the Jungle. It had a very big pool and lots of very big trees which I had to hop through then I had to hop over stepping-stones and go over the Burma rope bridge, I was a little bit scared because it was so high up and bouncy. I remembered what my people mommy had told me a long time ago, take a deep breath, think of something nice and just do it. Then feel very pleased with yourself that you have done something you never thought you would. I then went to look at the insect hotel, it was very nice with lots of places for the bugs to live. The last part of the garden was called the woodland sculptures, here I had to find three sculptures. The first one I hopped past and had to go back, it was the Grey Lady, she is made of twigs and very hard to see, the next is the Mud Maid, she looks like she is fast asleep, I didn’t want to wake her up so I was very quiet as I hopped passed, the last one was the Giant’s head, he looked very friendly. I learned about witches broom which is a little bush that grows around the middle of a tree, and botanist love this because they can grown lots of bonsai trees from them. Bonsai are little trees and botanists are people who know a lot about plants. I then hopped into Mevagissey to look at the boats and watch the seagulls playing. I was very tired as I had hopped about 7 miles and my paws were very hot, so I got on the bus back to camp and had a carrot.

The next day I hopped to St. Mawes, it has a harbour, there are a lot of harbours in Cornwall because there are a lot of fishermen, they must really like to eat fish, as I hopped along the seawall I met a gull who asked me what I had been doing and what I had seen while I had been in Cornwall I told him all the things I had seen and he told me that I should visit St. Just and look at the church yard as the guide books say it is the prettiest church yard in the whole of the UK. I thought I would take a look because I have seen lots of church yards. OH MY it is beautiful, it is very big and full of trees and plants, with pools and little waterfalls all around the graves and it is right by the river. The church is right in the middle and that is very pretty too, there’s also a well with holy water, I didn’t touch it because the sign said it wasn’t safe.

Then I hopped to Charles Town, there are lots of old tall ships here, the ones like pirates used in the olden days. I watched some people moving sacks and boxes and long pieces of rope around and I asked one of the white birds what was going on and he told me they were getting ready to film a TV program called Poldark. It was all very exciting, I wonder what it is like to be on TV and be famous. Then it was time for a carrot and bed.

The next day I hopped to the Minack Theatre, it was very tall. I felt like I was going to fall down when I was at the top. It was built by a lady called Rowena Cade and her gardener.
In 1929 some people put on a play called A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the garden and everyone enjoyed it so much that they wanted to do another one and they wanted to do The Tempest. That’s a play with the sea in it, Rowena thought it would be more fun to have the play by the sea, so she built the theatre into the rocks. She had to carry big bags of sand right from the bottom of the cliffs to the top and did nearly all of the digging and building herself even though she wasn’t young, I think she must have been a wonderful person. After that I hopped to Black Point to have a look at the lighthouse. You can’t get very near to it because it belongs to The National trust and it was closed, so I hopped back for a carrot.

On my last day I did a coastal hopped from Pentewan to Mevagissey. First I had to hop up a little hill, then down a big slope with  lot’s of slippery stones on on the path, then over a little bridge, then up the biggest hill, it just kept going up and up and up. My little legs went all wobbly. Then I had to hop up some wooden steps which wasn’t too bad, I then hopped through a field and then OH so many steps going down and down, then up and up. I had to stop for a little sit down and a look at the sea. I still had away to hop, so I started again, up another big hill then between some trees, I was just about to have another rest when I saw Mevagissey and deiced to hop on down the hill. When I got to the bottom I sat by the harbour and watched the seagulls diving for their supper, I wanted my supper, so I hopped back to camp.

Then it was time to come home.

Keep Hopping
Love Bunty
