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

Bunty Goes to Pentewan

DSC00161Hello,
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

Bunty goes on a bear hunt

DSCF6278 Hello I have been on another adventure, this time a bear hunt, but I didn’t hurt any bears, they weren’t real bears, they were made of wood. I went to a place called Bearwood, a very long time ago bears used to live there, but not anymore. I think it’s because there is just too much traffic now for them to be happy. The bear trail starts at a place called Lightwoods park and goes up and down some streets, then into Warley woods and back to the park. Lots of schools and people have painted the bears and put them in their gardens and in the parks.

I hopped all the way round but could only find 26 bears and there should have been 30, so I hopped around again, I still couldn’t find the others, I think they must have gone out for dinner, or someone had taken them for a walk.

It was a very nice hop and there were lot’s of dogs looking at the bears too, but we were all much to busy looking to have a chat.

My Photos are here if you want to see the bears.

Bunty Goes to Dorset

Weymouth 039 Hello I have been on another adventure this time to Weymouth, which is by the sea.

I didn’t really know what to do or see and then I meet Tom-Tom the cat. He lived in the village but spent most of his time on the campsite, he asked if he could spend the week sleeping in my awning, I told him he could and he told me about some very nice places to go to.

I first went for a little hop along the Lagoon, I couldn’t hop all the way round because it is very very big and it would have taken all of my holiday, so I just hopped a little way around to the boats and the jetty which the naughty storms have broken. There were lot’s of storms while I was there too, all of them in the nighttime, there was a great big thunder and lighting storm which kept me awake nearly all night, then another night lots and lots of rain and hail, then a very big wind which made the caravan rock, just like being on a boat. I thought I was going to fly away.

My next hop was to a place called Portland Bill. It was very exciting there, there is a great big light house and the waves are so big and come crashing over the rocks, I hopped as near to the edge as I could and got all wet. I thought it would be nice to do the hop around the point and it was. I saw the Obelisk and Pulpit Rock which used to be an arch, but the sea and storms have washed a lot of it away. There are also some Quarrymens’ shelters. The hop then goes up a big hill to the lookout station, and through some fields with horses and donkeys in. They didn’t want to chat as the storm had kept them awake all night too and they were very tired. Then the hop goes back to the coast path where there are lot’s of bits of cranes and thing left from the mining. The quarrymen used to cut big lumps of rock from cliffs so that people could build things. I liked Portland Bill so much I went back in the dark to see the lighthouse all lit up.

 

On another hop I went to see some of the seaside towns, I liked Lyme Regis, Bowleaze, and West Bay, the cliff in West bay was in a detective series that my people mommy and daddy used to watch on TV. It is very very big and very pretty, it looks all orange and red. Weymouth was nice too, there were lots of shops selling seaside things and arcades to play in. I did what was called the Georgian Trail but I got a bit confused. The map said to follow the red feet on the floor, but they had all gone so I just had to hop back and forth until I found all the places. I hopped along the beach and had a ride in the Sealife Tower, which goes up in the air I though I would be scared and that my tummy would go all funny, but it’s not scary at all and my tummy didn’t mind at all.  I had look at the sand sculptures, the people who make these are very clever, my sand castle don’t stand up but they can make great big statues out of sand. Then I met a big black bird, he told me his name was Gerr Off, well that’s what people called him when he tried to share their chips, then he laugh and said it was a joke. His name was Jack and he lived by the seaside and liked to hop up and down the front because there were always nice people who would feed him chips and ice-cream cone or bits of doughnut.

On another hop I went to see the White Horse of Osmington Hills, there are lot’s of stories about how and why it is there, I think whoever did it must have been very clever and worked very hard. Then I hopped onto Sandsfoot castle, it’s a ruin now but it still looks nice. You can hop inside it because some nice people who are called friends of Sandsfoot Castle have put boards in it, and there’s a little garden with a pond too. Although there weren’t any flowers to look at because it’s autumn now.

On another hop I went to play in Tout Quarry, it was OK to play in here it’s a special one. You mustn’t go and play in any Quarry because they can be very dangerous, but this one had been made safe. It had lots of big rocks and little pathway to hop around, and lot’s of sculptures and engravings to find, it was a real adventure. I climb rocks and big steps and went on to the coastal path to find more sculptures and pictures in the rocks and sat in the big stone chair.

All this hopping made me very tired so I thought it was time to come home and tell you all about it.
I have had to start another blog page for my new photos because I have filled up the old one, I am a very lucky bunny to have all these adventures.

Bunty goes to the Breacon beacons

Brecon Beacons 019 Hello, I have been on another adventure. I have been back to the Breacon Beacons to do some more waterfall hops.
Just outside where  the caravan was parked was  a little river so after I had unpacked my carrots I went for a hop across the stones. There an’t any fish in this river because its not really deep enough but some of the stones were very slippy but I didn’t fall in. I found some blackberries along the bank to have for my supper they were very nice.

On my first full day I thought it would be nice to hop along to see Neath Abbey, it is very old and all fallen down now, some of it had fences around it because the rain had made it unsafe, but that didn’t matter it was still very pretty. People called monks used to live in it a very very long time a ago and then it was sold to very rich people who turned it into their home. Then it was used as a place to smelt copper,  it has been a lot of things.  I learnt that smelt means to melt it,  I like to learn new things.
I then hopped to Port Talbot where I saw a big whale! He wasn’t real, he was made from concrete, and all the people children can play on him. Then it was time to see a waterfall, but this was an easy one to see. It was in a National trust museum called Aberdulais Falls Trail. The falls used to run a big waterwheel which helped to run the tin mine that used to be here, lots of people worked here. Some of them were only little children, I don’t think it would have been very nice. There are still bits of the old buildings and lots of things to read and look at, there’s even a little film to watch. I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t hop right up to the waterfall like I have all the others.

 

 

My little paws hurt, so I went home for carrots and a nap.

 

The next day I hopped to do the Dinas Rock and Sgydau Sychrdy Falls and then the Powder Trail, all these are very close together. So I didn’t have to hop far to do them all, although it did take me a long time to find the start of the Sgydau Sychrdy trail because it wasn’t sign posted and the map wasn’t very good. When I had finished my hop I saw two other people looking at the map and looking very confused, so I went and asked them if they were looking for the trail to Sgydau Sychrdy and when they said yes I showed them where the trail started. They told me I was very kind. Dinas Rock is very big I could only just see the top, people climb up and down it, I think they must be very brave. The hop to Sgydau Sychrdy was easy and the falls were tucked away at the side of the rocks, but they were still very loud. The powder trail can be hopped two ways, the easy way is straight up the river and back again and the hard way is to go over the top of the big rock and down the steep steep other side. It was very steep. I was very tired so I went for a nap after I had looked at the full moon, my people mommy told me to lookout for the moon because it was called the harvest moon and not only was it a full moon but it was a supermoon too.

The next day I hopped to Melincourt falls, this fall is 80 foot tall and it is very very pretty, I stayed there for quite a long time because it was so pretty. Then for my last hop I hopped the Henrhyd falls and Nant Llech trail, this was a hard hop for my little legs, lots of hills and slippy paths. I hopped and hopped through the pretty trees until I came to the water falls, they are all very pretty, I only saw the last one from the bridge because when I was going to go down the slop Banjo the dogs came running up the path, saying ‘it wasn’t right he always had a little play in this part of the river everyday, it was his part of the river’. When I asked him why his people daddy wouldn’t let him play he said it was because his people daddy had told him there were people ‘skinny dipping’ in there. I didn’t understand what he meant and when he told me I thought they must be very brave people to want to swim in the very cold water with no clothes on.

Then it was time to come home and tell everyone about my adventure

Bunty Goes to Arley Arboretum

Arley Arboretum 003Hello, I have been on another adventure this time to a place called Arley Arboretum. I paid my money to a nice man in a little shed and he gave me a map and showed me all the places on it that I might like. I started my hop on the Blue walk and hopped through very pretty trees, some of them were so big I could only just see the tops of them, they are hundreds of years old. That’s very old. There were also lot’s of very bright flowers all different colours and the bees were very busy. I asked one what they were doing and he told me they were busy collecting all the nectar to take back to the hive to make honey. I hopped a little further and came to the maze, I though it would be fun to go inside, I wasn’t scared of getting lost because I have been in mazes before, they are a lot of fun. I hopped round and round and found the middle, where there was a little fort to play on. I noticed on my hop there were little fairies hidden in the trees, I must have looked puzzled because a little boy told me it was a game children had to play. The children had a book with questions and puzzles in and they have to find all the fairies in the gardens, then they get a certificate. I then hopped along the Grove Coppice walk and up to take a look at the miniature arboretum. It’s not finished yet but I think it will be very nice when it is. After another hop I came to the Italian garden, it was so pretty, there were lots of red flowers and trees cut into shapes, a gardener told me this was called topiary and took a long time to learn to do. I might try to cut one of our trees into a shape. In the garden there was a big fountain, it looked lovely. A notice by the side of the fountain said that every few hours the main jets came on, it was a long time until the next big jet so I went on the red walk. The red walk was just as pretty as the blue walk but this time I had to find the well. I nearly missed it because it was hidden under some over growth. You have to creep under the over hanging growth and look though the gate, the gate is to stop visitors from falling it because it is very deep. I hopped and hopped until I came to the Peace Garden, it was very quiet and then I spotted some cages, when I hopped over two chickens came running over to me, they told me their names were Hattie and Cherry and it had been very quiet and they were bored so I stopped to chat. They told me that sometimes there were lots of children that stopped to talk to them but for some reason they hadn’t seen any on that day. I then heard a noise and Hattie told me to hurry because the noise was the fountain, I hopped very quickly back to the Italian garden to watch the fountain, it was wonderful. The water was shooting up so high into the sky and when the wind caught it, it sprayed all over me, I thought that was very funny.
My little paws had started to hurt, so I hopped home for a carrot and a nap.

Keep Hopping
Love Bunty

Bunty goes to Goodwood and the New Forest

goodwood 022 Hello I have been on another adventure,
this time to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. There were lot’s and lots of cars of all sorts. Some were very old and some were called racing cars and they made ever such a loud roaring noise when the engines were started up. I think I liked the hippy AA van the best, it was covered all over with flowers. There were lot’s of little stalls to look at and lot’s of places to have a little rest, which was just as well because it was a very big place to hop around. I looked at all of the cars and listen to the music I was getting tired so I went to the hotel. The hotel was called The Crown and it was in a village called Lyndhurst. I have never stayed in a hotel before, I had to hop up a lot of steps to get to my room as it was on the first floor. My room had a very big bed with very big pillows and a little bathroom just for me, there was a kettle with little packets of tea and coffee and biscuits. When I looked out of the window I could see into a shop that had lots of things to do with Alice in Wonderland. Then I found out that in the church is the grave of Alice Liddell, who was the little girl who Lewis Carroll wrote about when he wrote Alice in Wonderland, although the name on the grave says Mrs. Reginald Hargreaves, because that was Alice’s name when she grew up and got married. I decided it would be nice to go and see if I could find the grave and when I did I was quite surprise, it only had a little plaque on the floor, but the grave was covered in red and white roses. I like Alice in Wonderland because it has a white rabbit in it, just like me. But I don’t run everywhere saying I am late.

I went into the forest and found the ponies, they are very beautiful but you are not allowed to feed them so I couldn’t share my carrots with them. They can only eat what they find in the forest because other food makes them poorly. They were busy eating their tea and taking naps so I didn’t bother them.

On my way home I hopped to Mudeford and had a little hop on the beach and down the quay where all the little birds were playing in the lobster pots and making a noise. They told me they liked it in the pot because there were little bit’s of fish and bugs to eat and sometimes the people who ate in the cafes threw them bits to eat.

I also hopped to see Salisbury cathedral, which is very big. My people brother has a tile on the roof here with his name on. When he was little and he had been on holiday with my people mommy and daddy they visited this cathedral on the way home and the roof was being repaired. If people wanted they could buy a tile and engrave their names on it and it was put on the roof. So people mommy and daddy had one done for my people brother. I went to have a look at the Magna Carta which was written a very long time ago in 1215 by King John and it is still used today to help make the laws.
Then it was time to hop home
