Bunty goes on a ghost walk and see’s another Castle

my castle

my castle


Wednesday when I woke up the sky was grey and it was raining. So I went for a trip the opposite way round the coast to the way I had been hopping. I past a nice looking beach which was very crowed so I went on to Angle, which is a very pretty little bay with a café and toilet and that’s all. I went in the café as it had turned very cold and after chatting with the nice lady I found out that the last beach was crowed because they are filming, (that means making), the new Harry Potter film there, and when that’s done they are filming Robin Hood. (I must watch a Harry Potter to see if I would like to be in a film).

On the evening I hopped into Tenby and went on an hour ½ long ghost walk. I didn’t get scared because the lady was very funny, I learnt about fairy rings, and how to take a curse off if ever a witch put one on me, and about ghosts that live in houses and do all sorts of naughty things, the lady made me laugh a lot.

Thursday the weather was still drizzly so I hopped along to Carew Castle and Tidal Mill. There were lots of steps to climb up and down and rooms to look in. Bats live in one of the towers but I couldn’t go and see them because they are very shy and sleep in the daytime. I liked the Mill too, because I could touch the machinery.

Then I went to the beach and built my own castle in the sand and watched the naughty seagulls fighting over some bread. They are so noisy.

I have had lots of adventures this week and seen lots of new things. Now I am very tried, but a very happy Bunty. Oh and I nearly forgot to tell you about the two naughty bunnies I met, Bert and Bonnie. The out side pool was closed, it said so on a big notice but they keep going in there to play. Very naughty as there was a big grass bit they could have played on.

Keep Hopping

Bunty goes on another hop

Amroth

Amroth

Tuesday I went for another hop, this time Amroth to Wiseman’s Bridge to Saundersfoot. I hopped on the bus to Amroth I didn’t think it would take so long to get there; it went all over the place. My hop started with 85 steps which were very steep and made my little legs ache. There is a cycle path to follow at the top, but I stayed on the grass it was much nicer than hopping on concrete.

When I got to Wiseman’s Bridge it was very quiet so I stopped for a while to look at the sea, sometimes when the weather is bad the sea throws stones across the car park. I am glad it wasn’t a stormy day. I think the sea throwing stones sounds very scary.
On the way to Saundersfoot you have to go thought 3 tunnels, I only hopped through two, then I jumped down onto the sand and hopped into Saundersfoot along the beach and got sand all stuck between my toes, hee hee it tickled.

I was tried now so I got the bus back to Tenby and went for a nap

Bunty goes to Pendine Sands

Pendine sands

Pendine sands

Monday I hopped to Pendine Sands. This is where the speed trials were held, people would ride bikes and drive cars very very fast and some people died doing it, sometimes I think people are so silly!. I couldn’t hop all the way up the beach as the army people had their flags out and when the red flags are out you can’t go on that part of the beach because the red flags mean they are practicing with their guns. It’s a bit scary.
There is a little museum there called the museum of speed, I like museums so I went in to have a look, they had old bikes and lots of things to read. After a little rest on the beach I went to see Wiseman’s Bridge, (but I couldn’t see a bridge) and then back to Manorbier, I sat on the beach and had my picnic and looked in some rock pools, they are called that because they are little pools in the rocks. Sometimes you can see crabs in them, all I saw was some very pretty seaweed and snails. There was a Castle over the road; I have never been in a castle so I thought a look around the Castle would be nice. Inside the castle was life size wax figures the first lot made me jump, I thought they were real. I asked one of them the way and thought him very rude when he didn’t answer me. Then I saw the writing underneath him and felt very silly. I did enjoy climbing up onto the battlement up all those winding steps, when I got to the top I looked over the side and I was very high up and I could see right out across the sea.

I was tried now so I went back to the caravan for a very long nap.

Bunty goes on a long walk

Manorbier

Manorbier


Sunday the weather was nice and sunny I decided on the Manorbier to Tenby hop. (Around 8 mile). I got the bus to Manorbier Castle and hopped down to the beach where my big hop began. The route went from Manorbier to Presipe to Skrinkle to Lydstep beach and on to South beach Tenby. (I didn’t get to explore any of the caves as the tide was in almost all the while I was hopping, never mind). I found some lovely flowers growing on the cliff side, they must be ever so strong to live there, it’s very windy and sometimes the sea jumps up to wet them. . I had to hop up some very steep hills and down the other side, some of the paths were falling into the sea and there were great big drops into the sea down the side of the cliffs. I met a lady who asked me how far I had hopped and where I was heading, I told her and she said I would need a lot of energy to hop up the Lydstep steps. When I came to the Lydstep steps, I knew what she meant there were 111 of them and they were very big!

I got very tired towards the end of my big hop, I have never hopped this far before, and I was worried I wouldn’t get back in time for my carrots, but soon I could see the beach, so I knew I was almost home. My little paws were so sore and I was very hot, so When I got back to the caravan I had my carrots and went to bed!

Bunty goes on Holiday

Tenby beach

Tenby beach

I have been on holiday to Tenby, it had a thing called a beach and sea. I was very excited as I had never seen the beach or sea before and wasn’t sure what it was. It took a very long time to get to Tenby but I was very excited so couldn’t go to sleep. When I got there the first thing I did was hop as fast as I could to see what the sea looked like. Oh my! I have never seen anything so big, all that water, and it wasn’t standing still like the water in my bath. It was coming in and out over the sand, that’s what a beach is you know, lots and lots of sand. But the sea, it was just so big and it made a lovely sloshing sound as it rolled in and out and it smelt nice. I hopped up and down the beach and saw jellyfish, (they don’t look like fish), crabs and star fish, all just lying there on the beach. It was so much fun. By now I was very tried, so I went back to the caravan and went to bed and dreamt of sea and fishes and my next adventure which was the very next day.

Keep hopping
