Wilbur’s Travels – Antiques and Castles in the Sea

Gettin up early ta go see tha Antiques Roadshow at Trelissick was not a problem. Tha 2 hour trip was not a problem. Tha weather was great an the camera was charged, Audrey (the SatNav) was plugged in an ready ta assist so off we went! Nothin like on TV,  but glad we went, an I got my photo taken with a couple of people but no-one seemed to recognise me yet. Don’t think attendin is as good as watchin […]

Wilbur’s Travels – wings, webs and red-heads

With tha weather back ta brilliant, we returned ta Escot where I again had a go at makin friends with tha Red Squirrel ‘Flower’. My easy goin Aussie charm an larrikin ways appeared ta work an I got a bit more attention. I think she may be a bit too excitable for tha likes of this young wombat though, I’d never keep up.   Got some poo shots from tha small clawed otters, an watched them behavin like Thorpee in […]

Wilbur’s Travels – feeling small

Today we left Bath an headed towards Feniton. It was a drive through hair-raising one car width lanes with towerin shrubberies on both sides of tha road. She is an OK driver I guess; Mark was the sign spotter an Melissa got ta interprete Audrey (our crazy English gps) an follow on tha maps. Between tha three of them we manage ta get where we are headin alive an well.     The first stop on tha way here was […]

Wilburs Traveks – A spiritual Journey

This mornings trip was ta Avebury Standing Stones. A true Henge and with so many stones still in place it was great. I sat in tha devils chair. If She had managed to run 50 times around it, I would have been able to speak to tha devil. Too bad we can’t prove it hey? Tha other stone with tha sharp looking edges was attacked by “Stonekiller” who went around trying ta deface or knock down standing stones. He tried ta […]

Wilbur’s Travels – A real Castle

Yesterday I was all excited going ta Castle Coome. Well we looked an we looked but there was NO castle. Turned out ta be tha name of the prettiest village so not tooooo bad. Her camera threw a tanty  so no photos. Today I was wantin a REAL castle, battlements, arrow slits, moat… you know what a castle should be right? So Malissa googled ‘real castles near Bath’ and Farleigh Hungerford Castle came up. 14th Century fortress mainly in ruins […]

Wilbur’s Travels – Evading the bikers

    Today Bath was the finish ov the ‘Tour of Britain’ bike race! So we decided ta go for a drive ta Dyrham Park to stay away from all the hoomans . She got a photo of all tha blue sky too. Comin down the drive the view was spektacula, even good enough ta make me feel a bit gooy. I think all tha grass looks a bit fake, it’s so bloomin green. Tha trees were giant. Some were […]
