Time for touring… on four wheels and two

All eyes will be on Yorkshire in a couple of weeks' time as the Tour de France sets the cobbled streets alight. Actually, I don't think they'll be cycling across many cobbles... can you imagine the chaos, not to mention the discomfort? I can picture it now! Last year's winner Chris Froome (I always think it should be Vrrrr-oooom!) will be pedalling just a couple of miles from where Ted and I live.

HunstantonTalking of cycling, the chauffeur decided to try and encourage Ted to trot alongside him when he got his bike out of the 'van on our last trip. The flat campsite at Hunstanton was an ideal training ground, he thought, so carefully and slowly set off with Ted on the lead at his side.

You see it all the time, don't you? Obedient dogs trotting busily at their owner's pace. Did it go to plan? No! Luckily there were no disasters, but Ted wanted to jump up on the bike too, and I don't think even he is slim and agile enough to perch on the handlebars. He prefers to watch the birdie, in more ways than one – as the picture shows!

Sunny 'Hunny' cost lots of money…

Being good honest Yorkshire-based campers, we all like a bargain.

Whether it's a pre-loved dog bed from a car boot sale that can be washed and packed up for extra holiday comfort, or trimming a couple of pence per litre off our fuel costs thanks to being a loyal shopper, we like to watch the pennies.

So although we enjoyed very much our trip to sun-kissed Hunstanton - 'Sunny Hunny' as it is nicknamed - we were somewhat aghast to learn that our chosen site charged for canine companions to join the fun.

Our holiday is on the way!

Nairn Club SiteAt the moment we have no idea where we're going - the maid and the chauffeur are checking weather forecasts, so it could be that we try and follow the sun and duck the showers, as per their usual 'lastminute.com' ideals.

Ted would like to return to Nairn, in Morayshire, and looking at the pictures he's found on the maid's laptop it's easy to see why. The Club Site at Nairn is delightful, he says, with pitches set in woodland glades.

Ted in Scottish waters A wander through the woodland takes you into the town where there is a beautiful beach which is so vast, it's breathtaking. Time seems to stand still, he tells me, as you gaze from the promenade across the sandy expanses and wonder at the wide open Scottish skies. He was only a little chap when the three of them headed north, and it was about this time of year.
