Minehead... one of my top 10 places!

I got to go on an adventure on Sunday as something needed collecting in Minehead! It wasn't the best weather, but I thought I'd brave it anyway as I love going to the seaside!!!!
I got to ride in the front and watch the cars go by...

There was a bit of drama on the way over as a spider came down from the roof to say hello to Ma.... she didn't seem to appreciate this & there were screams of....
"my flipping seat belts jammed.... argghhh help me get out....."  haha, she's silly! She reckons it was one of those black widows everyones talking about, but we will never know for sure as the photo is so blurred (shaky arms of panic!! haha).....

I keep looking out for the sea...... we are getting closer!!

Yey!! My first look at the sea!!!

We ended up at the harbour end... Theres alot more for me to look at and more importantly theres more things to smell!!!
Ma likes taking photos of old things.... weird!

You might be able to see that i have my camera on my collar.... Ma thought it would be nice for me to take some photos for myself at the seaside.... I jumped into the sea and busted it..... Ooooopppsss!!! Didn't get many Reggie brownie points for that!!! Will ask Santy Paws for another one maybe?

It was very dramatic weather wise on the coast! There were tankers in the distance, but you might not be able to see them with the haze...

The sea looks calm here, but the waves kept coming in with some force!

I love it here, I can be free and run around on the pebbles!

This is the harbour area! The tide was out so the boats just rest on the sand.

Its so pretty here.... even in the stormy weather!

There were lots of things for me to sniff and dig on the sand....

Ma liked this boat.... She said it was 'cute'.... so took photos of it when she should of been taking photos of me!!

Here I am again with the harbour wall in the background! There was sinking mud on the beach and a few wellies were nearly lost!!!

... That boat.... again!

This is near to where the sinking mud was!!! my paws were so dirty! it looked like i had little muddy socks on!!

Ma said this reminded her of Pirate of the Caribbean!?..... Jack Sparrow wasn't around though much to Ma's disappointment!

We managed to find a rock pool to wash off my paws and the wellies in!

Ummm salty sea water..... Sllurrrpppp!

Just rinsing the old puggy paws....

If you look in to the distance you can se the delight that is Butlins..... Im sure its very nice there, but its not my cup of tea

Ooooo a big rock pool for me to paddle in!!!

These 'sticks' looked pretty! In the background if you look hard enough you can see a surfer!! he was very brave I thought!

More pretty sticks....

I dont know if you will be able to see this photo properly, but it really made me laugh.... it was a young Staffie playing on the beach trying with all his might to get the buoy off the chains & ropes!! hehe!
He would have been there all day trying to get it! Think he thought it was a big pink football!!!

Here he is again with a smaller white buoy that was attached.... it looked like a good game to me!

There is also a lifeboat station in Minehead! The people that man the lifeboats are very brave!!

.... another 'old' boat! Its nearly time to go home....

Just one last look at the sea..... & then home!

My new winter coat

I love my new winter coat! I tried loads on, but because I'm a 'special' size, not many of the ones in the shop fitted me....
This one of course was the most expensive..... But dont I look cool!! Its toasty and warm, so bring on the snow!!!!

A new Lunchtime walk!!

Sometimes I get to go to work with my Ma... on these days we will go for a lunchtime walk and try and find new places to explore in the lovely area we are in!

I only met one other dog on my walk as it was out in the sticks, but we stopped and said a quick Hello!

Ma said Robin Hood must of been around these parts... He'd left an arrow!

We walked through a really cool wooded area that joined a field to a beautiful orchard!

The Orchard was so pretty! There were trees as far as my Puggy Eyes could see!

I went in for a closer look...

I am lucky enough to live in Somerset.... & Somerset is very famous for its Cider! I imagine this orchard is for Cider, there were lots of apples on the ground!

When we were nearing the end of the orchard I started to hear water!!! I love looking at the water... & if i'm feeling brave I go in!

There were some stone steps and a lovely bridge to go over...

Wow!!! look at this lovely place! What a find! I went straight down to the water to have a closer look!

Ma watched on from the bridge!

I didnt get to close to this part as if I fell in the hole I would of been forced under the water on the other side....

There were some very beautiful trees.... living and fallen

More bridges led us to more fields.... I led the way so Ma didnt get lost!

The field on the other side was heading us in the wrong direction for going back to Ma's work, so we turned around and walked back the way we came.... but we didnt mind as the views were so nice!

Ma had left her wellies at home!! So her Uggs got a bit damp! Ooops!

We played a bit of hide and seek on the way home.... can you see me?

We came across a HUGE mushroom....

Ma looked underneath for Fairies......

But they must of been out for lunch to..... xxx
