I have been on another hop, this time to Kingsford Park and Kinver. I didn’t know how far I would get as the sky was very grey, but the day just got hotter and hotter! I started my hop at Kingsford Park and after a little chat with the birds who told me it wasn’t going to rain, (they know all about the weather) I hopped across the road and through some very over grown trees which took me out into a field with lovely purple heather growing in it. I hopped a little further and found a notice that said that soon this part of land would be used for grazing and the heather would be allowed to grow more, I am pleased about that it is very pretty.
I hopped down muddy paths and up steep hill, under trees that the naughty wind had brought down, one had even fell on some cable and brought that down. Through lot’s off thick trees and brambles full of Blackberries. I heard bee’s singing and birds tweeting and saw lots of different types of mushrooms growing. I didn’t pick any as some can be a thing called poisonous that means they will make your tummy poorly. After a very long hop I came to some caves, but these caves weren’t in the floor, I had to climb up to them! They were a bit scary, my ears stood on end!! But I still went to look because that’s what having an adventure is all about; I have put some photos on the side for you to have a look at.
I was very hot and very dirty from my climbing, so it was time for home
It is a very big field
I have been on another adventure, this time I hopped to a place called Stourton and hopped into Kinver. First I had to hop through a very big corn field, but luckily it had been cut down otherwise I don’t think I would have been able to see where I was hopping as corn is very tall. As I hopped along I met a very strange little fellow, he was all brown and fluffy and was wriggling along amongst the bits of corn, I stopped to say ‘Good morning’ and we had a little chat. He told me he was a caterpillar and was looking for somewhere to go to sleep, he told me all about how he will wrap himself up in a cocoon and sleep for a few days, then when he wakes he will be a beautiful butterfly. I must say caterpillars make a lot more sense that butterflies.
At the end of the field I had to hop over a very big style and down some very big steps, at the bottom of these I came to a little path with lots of blackberry bushes and big pink flowers, I though it would be nice to pick some blackberries for mommy, so I set to work. This wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be, the berries grow on trees which have big thorns on and they scratched me and kept hooking on my hat and pulling it off and I kept getting my paws and ears stuck on them. The bee’s working on the flowers thought it was very funny. Soon I had enough berries for a pie, so after saying good bye to the bees I carried on my hop down the narrow winding path, after a very long hop past lots of wild flowers and trees and squirrels playing, I came to a gate. I had to hop through this and on to the next part of my adventure
Next I hopped along a path which went through the middle of some big fields, horses live in these fields but they didn’t want to chat, they were much too busy eating the grass, they looked very smart in their coats and hats, the hats were to stop the flies getting in their eyes and ears. At the end of this path I hopped into Kinver. Kinver is very old some of the building have wood on them and they stick out into the road, they look like they have big fat bellies. I hopped thought the village and up the big hill then down the other side to the canal and went under the pretty bridge
I hopped along the canal and watched the boats, which move very slowly and had to keep jumping out of the way of people on pushbikes. They don’t like to stop, I don’t think they see a lot of the pretty things on their way, they go much too fast. After a very long hop I was back to where I had started, so it was time to go home and help to make the pie.
Which was very yummy
The weather was nice and sunny and after all the rain we have been having I thought I could do with a good hop. So I went to Pooley, first I hopped down by the canal but there weren’t any ducks to talk to, I did see a dragon fly but he was much too busy to stop and chat. After a very long hop I came to the old Alvecote priory, which was very broken down, in fact it was just a pile of stones and one pretty arch.
It must have been little
After I had hopped around the priory, I hopped over the road and down into the woody part of the park, I saw a couple of butterflies which I didn’t try to chat to, they are very silly and it’s very hard to try to get them to keep still.
I didn’t think the park was that pretty and there was no one to chat too, and it was getting very hot, so I hopped back home for a carrot.
