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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
microwave 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 holiday cottage.
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!
