Life with Milly… and without Molly

East Yorkshire was the logical choice from our West Yorkshire base, so off we went with Milly (an Avondale Dart Millennium special edition) in tow.

Last year, at around this time, we had been to Withernsea in the motorhome, with Molly continually pestering the maid to lift her on to her knee as we travelled. So this time the journey to this unassuming but pleasant seaside town was a somewhat muted affair.

Free from the constraints of the motorhome, we all jumped into the car and enjoyed a scenic drive to Hornsea, another coastal town well worth a visit.

Travelling terrier Ted, together with his maid and chauffeur, visit campsites around the UK with Milly the caravan in tow. Ted offers tips for places to stay and shares some of his holiday capers.

Donkeys and djellabas

While camping in Britain in March, rain showers might be expected – but not in Morocco! That’s what we got though: torrential rain for the week we were in North Africa. But the weather didn’t deter us from enjoying the great outdoors, and nor should it.

Blog Ferry crossingThis leg of our Education By Astonishment trip was fascinating, starting with the ferry from Algeciras to Tangier, booked for us back in Britain by the Club’s experts. Just over an hour long, if you take this crossing look out for the wonderful leaping porpoises.

Then it was really exciting drifting by Gibraltar and watching Africa’s shores come closer. Our two sons Daniel and Darley, aged five and three, are most definitely gaining a stronger grip of geography on our travels.

We’re the Hurst family: that’s me David; my wife Debs and our two brilliant boys Daniel and Darley, aged five and three, plus Colin Dog (a dynamic collie!) – and we love being outdoors and travelling.

I just went on tour…

If there were such a thing as Friendly Club Bingo, Hortense and I would have scored a full house over Easter. Over six days, accompanied by AdventureDog Shakey, we camped at a Certificated Site, a Special Interest Section, a Region meet – though a rather exclusive one, at Houghton Hall, the site of this year’s National Feast of Lanterns – a District Association Temporary Holiday Site, and two Club Sites, one in England and one in Scotland.

At The Volunteer CS, Herefordshire

The CS was a late addition to the list. It wasn’t my intention to go from Coventry to Sawston, the venue for the Folk Dance and Song Group Easter Gather, via Herefordshire, but if you drive museum pieces instead of sensible cars, sometimes you have to go quite a long way to get a new clutch.
