Mike gets all
excited as he points out the monkeys monkeying around at Monkey
World! We see the monkeys enjoying cool ices lobbed in by the
keepers on this hot day and Belinda enjoying Mike's (he's a little
monkey) ice cream. Later we watch 'Monkey Business' on TV.
Mike prepares a simple meal in
the holiday cottage while Belinda attempts to pour a Mill House Farm
Cider without spilling any (whoops, careful now, it's precious stuff!)
bought at the Mill House Cider Museum earlier that day. We sit
down to enjoy the meal - and the cider! Ooo ar!
Mike does his
bit to camera before boarding the steam train on The Swanage Railway to
Corfe. We look round the castle followed by a visit to Corfe
Model Village where Belinda locks Mike in the stocks! On the
train on the way back we check the train's top speed on the Sat Nav.
In this clip we start at the
viewpoint for the Cerne Abbas Giant and walk through the Dorset
countryside to get a closer look. Returning, Belinda decides on a
different route, taking us through thick undergrowth where we get
bitten and stung before we take a final look at The Giant.
Belinda scares all the sheep away
while we zoom in to Hardy's Monument in the distance, then find a
lovely spot for our picnic lunch. We walk through the woods and
finally arrive at the Monument where we check the Sat Nav and look back
down at the way we came.
A lovely evening meal at the 'The
Coach and Horses' in Winterbourne Abbas, our local pub near the holiday
cottage. The clip shows the outside and inside of the pub where
we look at the menu and enjoy our Steak meal which seems to send
Belinda to z z z sleep!
Here we see Belinda applying the factor 15 on
another hot day, this time in Lyme Regis where we look around the beach
area and take a walk on the famous Cobb. Then we walk part of the
South West Coast Path, pausing to take a photo and admiring the view
back towards the Cobb.
We find a nice
picnic spot by the old Fleet church, Belinda inspects an old battlement
at Chesil Beach while Mike reads the viewpoint tourist notice along the
South West Coast Path. After a hot sticky walk we stop for a
drink on the way back then check our trail on the Sat Nav.
beeps when breakfast is ready, Mike dishes it up while Belinda
serves. A close up of our hearty breakfast then finishing with a
shot of us enjoying it before another hard day touring the Dorset
area. This clip gives a good impression of the living area in the
Clips from Dorchester where we
see the Town Crier shouting Hoyez Hoyez (what's that all about?) and
visit the Dinosaur Museum where Mike meets a distant relative then has
a close call when a Dinosaur bites back and fights to prevent himself
becoming Dinosaur Dinner!
