Wilbur’s Travels – just one more problem

What a day! First we bade a sad goodbye ta Tina an Wayne at tha Greyhound Country Inn – afta a yummy breakfast of course. Then it was a drive towards Gatwick with a stop at Dorking just ta stretch the legs (not mine, I was still stuffed inta tha back pack to keep dry). We arrived at tha accommodation ta find that they had booked out tha room ta someone else as they didn’t get tha phone message that […]

Wilbur’s Travels – Grey Sky an a Pirate Cove

Finally we welcome some typical English weather! So a quick drive ta Exmouth an then an afternoon of relaxin was called for. Tha rain came down, tha wind howled and tha ocean smells wafted. Gave Her a chance ta try out tha new coat an she said it was great. Some of tha houses had been painted alright colours an there was a lot of new buildins with lots of apartments. I also got ta say Hi to a coupla […]

Wibur’s Travels – Choc teddy friends

Exeter on a Sunday was a great idea! Easy parkin (shops don’t open till 11am so nice and quiet), and plenty of space at tha launderette. If only Wally the Wise  Owl would stop flirtin with Audry tha Sat Nav. I’m not jealous (I have Olivia) but it does make her lose concentration an imagine we are in tha middle of a field sometimes. We made it safe an sound anyway an left Mark to do the laundry with his […]

Wilbur’s Travels – St Ives

It was a long way ta drive but when we found an amazin gallery full of quirky metal jewellery and stuff. Sharon McSwiney was tha artist an her husbeast was tha sella… and a very good one at that. So much creative originality was almost too much for this little Aussie wombat to bear… I mean bare hahaha Quite a long way down (or up dependin on your direction) Tomorrow is a rest day for laundry an fussin around Exeter.

Wilbur’s Travels – Wood, swans an pebble beaches

It was another beauty of a mornin here in Fenny Bridges and as usual tha breakfast was delish at tha Greyhound Inn. Our first stop was tha Dansel Craftwork Gallery at Abbotsbury. Full ta burstin of bonza wood stuff. Mark was in his element, an it’s a good job She has no money an Malissa has already posted home a couple of parcels, cause I KNOW there woulda been lots heading out otherwise. I liked tha quirky sculptures by John […]

Wilbur’s Travels – at the zoo

Off bright an early this morning with Her, M&M an Stef for Paignton Zoo. She was mumbling all tha way about Badgers an Wolves  (them not actually bein part of tha zoo), but there was excitement about cheetah an flamingo from tha others. There was a film crew on the silverback gorillas an they were actin all tough and showin off – not used to tha celebrity stuff I expect. I wanted ta give them some tips (me bein famous […]

Wilbur’s Travels – day at the beach

Today was a seaside day ( earworm coming up now… “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside” ) an although it was grey an overcast we decided ta check out tha so called beaches here.   So here we are at Sidmouth, a lovely coastal village. An here are 2 young lads sunbathin on the -um – pebbles?  They look just like large river rocks!     So many bloomin flowers. I had to check them out. All […]

Wilbur’s Travels – Castles old and older

It was overcast an coola today which was more comfy for us all. We did get a bita Liquid sunshine on tha way back but as we were in tha car it didn’t worry me at all. Our first stop was ta The Prickly Ball hedgehog rescue. Not much ta say about tha place but that it was aimed at kids an there were a few there. I heard Her and Malissa muttering under their breath when one sweet, screechy, […]
