Magic is taking some time out from blogging just for a few days as she is going to the vets tomorrow to be spayed. Hopefully she will be up and about again very soon and able to share her adventures again but, in the meantime, Aoife and Crybbe would like to share some photos from their day out at Burton Constable this Sunday:
Burton Constable Hall is an Elizabethan country house with some lovely open spaces to wander round with your dogs. The day we went there was also an archery contest happening with many people dressed for the occasion :-)
Crybbe & Aoife were as pleased as us to see a welcome sign on the tea-room door:
One end of the stable cafe and gift shop is designated for dogs and their owners to be able to sit under cover and enjoy a snack whatever the weather.
As well as the archery contest another surprise was seeing the remains of the skeleton of a 58.5 foot long sperm whale that was stranded on the nearby coast in the early 19th century. At one time it had been on display in the grounds but can now be viewed in the stable block.
Crybbe checking it out.

Some alpacas shorn for the summer :-)

Among the trees we also found a whale inspired sculpture:
and lots of pretty wild flowers like these red campions:
as well as a sheep trying out a tree stump to get a better view :-)
Hope you enjoyed the photos. See you again some time - Crybbe & Aoife :-)
