Borders galore to meet and greet…

Border meet June

What a grrrreat idea! The internet has lots of positive uses and on Sunday there was a terrier treat in store for me as I was whisked off in the car to a ‘meet’ of boisterous, scruffy little chaps who all looked a bit like me!

And why not? This was a day for socialising with my fellow breed, the intelligent and endearing Border Terrier though I say it myself, we are very popular! Famous BT owners include Andy Murray, Sir Elton John, Janet Street Porter and David Walliams and who can argue with their choice?

Fresh air and animals

Searching for creatures at sunset

Searching for creatures at sunset

Most children love animals. Okay, so our five-year-old Daniel would choose a fast car over a Friesian cow any day, but he still stops in his tracks whenever we see any animals. On the other hand, our three-year-old Darley worships anything to do with creatures of any kind, all his waking hours. We, mum and dad, love them too.

Some people are put off camping because of the risk of creepy-crawlies getting inside their tent, caravan or motorhome but, for us, camping is ideal.

Take our picturesque Club Sites - not only are they a haven for us campers - but home to a world of fascinating creatures too. It's sad then that many people are spending an increasing amount of time indoors and missing out on this natural wonder.

Ditch the telly and walk!

We haven’t banned television on our Education By Astonishment motorhome camping travels – we just don’t have one!

Hurst Blog 3We don’t have one back at our Devon house either, though our two little boys do watch some of their favourite children’s programmes on our iPad when on lengthy trips in our Swift Escape, and we all watch the occasional YouTube clip to set up a planned excursion, but that’s about it.

By not exercising this lazy addiction, nobody misses it. Not one bit. Never has one of boys said as much as: “Can I watch TV instead of swimming/walking/discovering/seeing a castle/beach/forest…”
