Another long hop
On Sunday I went for a hop around Sutton Park. Sutton Park is very big and it has lots of ponds with ducks, and there are ponies and birds and rabbits it’s such a lovely place. I hopped all around the pools and saw some cows enjoying the warm sunshine. I met a dog who had been playing in one of the pools and he was very muddy, he told me that his daddy didn’t mind and gave him a lovely bath when he got home.
There are lots of old bits of walls and things in the park to find and look at and there are information boards every now and then to read. I like information boards because you get to learn something new. I found a little stream and the water made lovely patterns as it ran over the top of the stones. There were some very big hills to hop up and down and some of the paths had big holes in them made by the rain washing the dirt away. After I had been hopping for 3 hours I was getting hot so I made my way home for an iced carrot juice and a sit in the shade.

I love Cannock Chase
I have been camping again
Friday started off really sunny and as I hopped to the shower block I watched all the baby bunnies playing and hopping around under the other vans, they asked me to stop and play but I told them I had a very busy day. I set off hopping a route I knew to the Cannock Chase VC, I had to hop up the big steep Kit bag hill; it’s a long way up to the top, but I made it, there was a lady walking up too and she laughed and said it’s easer on the way back down, (I didn’t like to tell her I was walking a different way back), so I just smiled and said ‘Yes it will be’. When I got to the VC I popped into the loo to find Swifts nesting, (picture on my photos, you can just see her head popping out), she told me that someone had smashed the toilet window so they had moved in because it was a nice quiet place to stay. I then hopped over to the hide to look for birds, and there weren’t any! There were however loads of bunnies and squirrels. I then had a hop by the ponds and on to the forest VC. It had started to rain, and I don’t like getting wet so I hopped back to the caravan.
I like to watch the rain
Saturday I set off for my hop and took a path I had not hopped before, which after a while brought me to a path I recognised so I hopped to the forest centre and decided a hop around the health heart walk would be nice, I wish I hadn’t, a lot of the sculptures were gone and the information boards had been removed and what was left had been left looked unloved I felt very sad. So I had a play on the park to cheer myself up, I went on a very big slide, the first time I went down it scared me, but I just had to have another go, slides are fun. Then I played ball with a dog called Ben. I had sat down for a drink and he came and sat by me. He asked me if I want to play ball, I wasn’t in a hurry so I said yes. We had a lovely time, me throwing the ball and Ben running after it and bring it back.
Sunday I hopped paths I had not hopped before and watched some men on mountain bikes riding down big hills and falling off! I don’t think I would like to do it. I also saw a very proud family of geese, the daddy goose brought his babies for me to see, and I told him they were quite the most beautiful babies I had seen. He seemed very pleased with that.
I had a really nice weekend and can’t wait for my next adventure. I have been looking at some old videos and have found one of mommy, daddy and big brother ballooning, that looked like fun.
