Little Bluey Tres is behind the silver van... the ferry ride was only maybe a minute but I had to remember my last ferry ride in South Africa when three men pulled me across with a cable on their backs....
So my next little adventure was the one my dad would have loved!!!!
I took this train out to the castle and back just over one hour but sure lovely!!!
What a fabulous looking sight!!!
This is why my Dad would have been in his element...before he became a very successful Insurance district manager he started out as a young married man as a fireman on the steam locomotives and he regularly fired up the famous Flying Scotsman...so these next two are for my Dad!!!
Back at the car I took a different route back to Poole and passed by the castle again
Only done a few grocery shops but this chain is now my favorite great staff, some bargains on good products and located in most towns!!!
I lucked out again staying two nights with Margaret in her beautiful home...so friendly has given me the run of the house and I already knew I could use the kitchen so I bought some food and after I settled in cooked a lovely simple meal for myself as Margaret went out....
The house is spotless and lovely check out my room and the view
Going to plan a driving, sightseeing, hiking day tomorrow and then stay here again tomorrow night.
The only news to tell you is that I checked the house sitting site I belong to this morning and saw a nice pet sitting job for 5 days in Wales next week..it fits my schedule and I sent off a letter this morning and by the time I got here I had been excepted ..so that will be a little break for me but more on that later in the week!!
