Final pilot succeeds








Final pilot succeeds ! We have a long walk at Plankey Mill near Haydon Bridge and Alice negociates the Bridge without mishap though we are disappointed that the old swing bridge is gone .
She relaxes sufficiently to snout her way around the tracks without panicking overly and is so shattered when we return to the car that she flops exhausted by the car as we unpack a picnic and barely raises more than an ear as two little lads play football almost on top of her . Even Mr Grumpy the next door dog couldn't undermine her confidence and she simply dozed on while he griped and complained ( possibly the smell of my fellafels was getting up his nose ) .
July ... Camping ... here we come !

Hi Shelagh
Glad pilot camper trial went well, alice certainly seemed to enjoy the experience, Alice would of loved it today as we had a pair of mallards on the flat roof of our friends next door house quite comical, Our new camera comes tommorow so will try it out in northumberland in 2 weeks
Take care
Joan

Glad the pilot went well - I'm quite taken with Nat's comment tho. Lovely when they comment, isn't it? My daughter reads my blog all the time, but she is away from home. Doesn't comment often tho.
By the way - that's a great photo added - but I think you're replacing you with your daughter's pic - you can't possibly be that young!!!
I am totally jealous!
