What a summer ☀️ 🙂 but today I will be travelling back from Wales to Lady Cindy in the river Hamble to resume my travels.
I have spent the summer with Ffion and her family helping them to move and paint their new home. It’s not all been hard work though, I have spent a lot of time up at their fields with the horses, been to two music festivals, a couple of band gigs, birthday parties, days and nights out in the town, country parks, got a tattoo and much more. Dotty has been on an adventure too but lost her tail in the process. She tried to climb some scaffolding to sit with me while I was painting. She slipped, caught and broke her tail and had to have it amputated due to no blood circulation. She has recovered well and seems to manage fine without it.
I originally planned to enter Europe via France to get Dotty a European pet passport but French vets have been told to only issue them to French citizens. I will go to A Caruna in Northern Spain instead. There is also a big Atlantic storm coming into Biscay next weekend so I will go to Portland harbour and shelter there until the weather is right to cross the Channel and Biscay. I have an opportunity to stop at Brest if needed.
