Afternoon all and some news hot off the press. That man and I have made things up for now. As you may recall I was unceremoniously dumped in a bag for life and put in the back of a van in conditions that were far from ideal. Anyway I am out of the bag and this picture celebrates the moment that I finally made it.
This is Compton Acres and is a lovely series of gardens in Canford Cliffs a very upmarket suburb of Poole. It was a lovely morning so that man and I set out on the bus to explore. What fun it was trundling along on the bus and waving to the passing millionaires in their Bentleys as they went by. When we got there that man told me to be quiet for once as he would try and avoid buying me a ticket. He also promised me that if this worked he would buy me an ice ream later on. Anyway we went in and this was the first garden that we saw.
After that gorgeous vistas kept on opening up. Here I am by a little waterfall in a woodland garden.
Then on to a rock garden. That man wanted to snap me but I said no that my readers didn’t want any more general scenes with me tagged on as an afterthought. I insisted that I be allowed to take a selfie for you all. I know that you have been worried and so here I am up close and personal!
After that it was on to the Japanese garden. Here I am on some stepping stones. If you look carefully you can see some Carp coming up to say hello.
Following this we set off for the beach at Canford Cliffs. As soon as we turned the corner and saw the sea that man just said to me “this is why I moved here”. He is very happy and so am I. For the benefit of some of my followers from the far north of the world British beaches have lots of seagulls and ice cream stalls both of which make this particular Eagle happy too. Here I am after that man bought me an ice cream and we officially declared a truce!
Those familiar with this part of the world will be able to identify Old Harry Rock in the background. When we stayed at a local hotel once Uncle Dave had a toilet and if you sat on it and kept the door open you could see this rock. There you go local flavour for those willing to listen.
A historic day and I am pleased to be able to share it with you all as it is happening.
