Clovelly

My humans never drive straight to a holiday destination.  They always make use of the journey to see somewhere interesting on the way.  I was jolly pleased that we stopped at Clovelly. We set off down the old cobbled street.  Quite soon we came across some donkeys.img_8807I sat up on Eli, who was busy nibbling hay.img_8730-copyWe continued on down the street.  I wondered if I could ride down on a sledge like the one outside the pub!img_8733-copyAfter not very long we arrived at a little museum in one of the old cottages.  I read all the interesting facts about Clovelly.img_8743The fisherman’s sitting room contained many interesting things.  img_8738-copyThere was still quite a long way for my little legs to walk down to the harbour.img_8753-copyI stopped and had a rest next to some sledges.  Sledges are used in Clovelly for pulling goods up and down the cobbles.img_8747-copyThe harbour below looked delightful, though as everything looked quite small I knew we still had quite a long way to walk.img_8749-copyMy legs weren’t really made for walking; I was actually designed to sit, so sometimes I look a bit odd when I am walking…img_8754When we finally got down to the harbour I had a little rest in Rosie.img_8756-copyThen being a bear with a taste for adventure, I decided to climb one of the ladders hanging from the harbour wall.img_8759-copyimg_8763At the top I noticed a sign about fishing, it didn’t really matter though as I’d forgotten my fishing net.img_8765-copyThere was a splendid view of the North Devon coastline from the end of the harbour wall.img_8766Here is a selfie of me with the lifeboat station behind me to the left.img_8767I was feeling the need for some cake after so much exercise, so we set off back up the cobbled street.img_8777I was very pleased that we didn’t have to go too far before finding The Cottage Tearooms.img_8789I sat outside on the terrace and enjoyed a piece of blackberry and apple crumble sponge.img_8778-copyThere were lots of butterflies drinking nectar from the nearby flowers.img_8783Soon it was time to continue up the steep hill.img_8800While I was resting a dog stopped to ask if I was OK.  I told him I thought the humans might carry me the rest of the way.img_8793I said ‘hello’ to a cat. Unlike the dog, who was just visiting, the cat lived in Clovellyimg_8806After getting right to the top we went to see some more donkeys in their stable.  The donkeys sometimes pull the sledges up the hill and give people rides.img_8808I had a little sit on this one for a little while and watched the ears moving around.  Donkeys have big ears.img_8809

I am a lucky bear that my humans take me to such lovely places.
