A holiday of two halves…

KentMollyBeachUnpredictable as ever, the maid and the chauffeur decided to sell our motorhome the week before our September holiday and packed Ted and me into the car with a tent, a kettle and our bedding. What a squeeze!

As there was no towing involved, and no motorhome to manoeuvre down tiny country lanes, they decided to go somewhere they’d never been before and headed for the coast of Kent.

I must say, I was excited as we drew near to our first destination and drove along a narrow road past a tree-covered park. But within half an hour of arriving, matters took a turn for the worse as the chauffeur became a handy snack for a horde of midges as he unpacked the tent under a row of trees.

Delightful Sandwich, but no bacon this time…

My holiday wish list is simple: sunshine, a beautiful beach and plenty of bacon and sausages for breakfast.

M&T KentAlthough one of our destinations was the pretty Kent tourist hotspot of Sandwich, it was the one location on our holiday where Ted and I didn’t get a meaty treat - although we were able to sit and relax in the garden at the town’s Piece of Cake café.

We also perched on a bench under a large weeping willow tree and watched the world go by as the maid and chauffeur relished a rare Sunday without that sinking feeling of work the next day.

Molly goes in search of her roots

Summer’s nearly gone but September often promises (and delivers) balmy days, gentle breezes and the languid lap of waves against sand or shingle. Oh, how I love the beach!

Computer MollyBut I’ve been checking out a couple of Club Sites that are inland, yet have still managed to thrill my senses. Now all I need to do is persuade the chauffeur to take Ted and me back to our ‘roots’.

This one looks great to me - Moffat campsite in the Scottish lowlands. I think this appeals because of its location on the border with England, which is where we border terriers originated. But the main reason for my choice is that the town is just a five-minute walk away and the local butcher sells delicious meats and home-cooked pies. Yum!
