Molly and Ted head south

With so much rain having fallen in the south of England, the chauffeur and the maid want to show their support for hard-pressed site owners in the south and south west this summer.

Seaford PromenadeOne place I'd love to return to is a little-known traditional seaside town on the south coast, nicely situated between Brighton (to the west) and Eastbourne - Seaford, in pretty East Sussex.

Eagle-eyed campers and caravanners will have seen stories in the newspapers earlier this year about a rare visitor that was blown off course by the violent storms. The great skua, a large seabird that should have been wintering in sunnier climes in Senegal, West Africa, ended up taking a breather at Seaford en route to its destination.

Molly has stars in her eyes

The clocks are about to go forward, the evenings are lighter and warmer and those campsites are looking increasingly attractive... I just love twilight walks on coastal paths, or sauntering through a seaside town with all its smells, sights and sounds.

The maid and the chauffeur enjoy people watching with a cup of tea and a snack outside a café, while Ted and I check out the other canine companions walking past at shin height. To tell the truth, Ted does the checking while I gaze up with big, watery brown eyes just in case one of my two-legged companions drops a sliver of cheese or a crumb of cake.

There’s something magical about soaking up the atmosphere of a seafront after the cafés have closed, and the crowds that packed the beach and promenade have left for home.

Molly welcomes spring... and a holiday

Hello again! My fur is beginning to moult so that can only mean one thing - spring is here and I need to shed my tatty old winter coat. It also means it’s time to think seriously about setting off on our travels.

Molly & Ted St David'sThe maid has put brushings from my coat outside in a wall of ivy, so that baby blue tits can keep warm and snug if their parents are sharp-eyed enough to spot my cast-offs when building their nests.

I’ve decided I’d like to go back to St David’s, on the Pembrokeshire coast. We went when I was a pup three years ago, and Ted - who doesn’t like water, as a rule - and I both enjoyed paddling in a stream that runs alongside the cathedral.
