#MiniBreeze went for another walk!

Last Sunday was a beautiful hot sunny day in the south of England, so we decided it was time for #MiniBreeze to have another outing.  We drove to the local abbey (Quarr Abbey, it was Sunday so we didn't disturb them there, but we will take him there soon).  We parked the car there and started our walk.

We walked along a sun dappled wooded path until we came to Wooton creek.

This is the grounds of a very nice hotel, we will get back there later.

We got back into the woods and #MiniBreeze found this interesting ice house.  It must be very old because even on this little island we all have fridges and freezers now.

#MiniBreeze was very excited to reach the railway track.  We had to cross this and #MiniBreeze sensibly decided to stop and read the warning signs, to ensure that he would be safe.  We think @henryandfriends would approve of this.

After crossing the line #MiniBreeze hoped to see the steam train that runs on this line.  He didn't get to see it but we will make sure he does.  The SR on the gatepost stands for Southern Railway, this was the company that used to run this line.  Now it is a steam railway run as a tourist attraction.

Moving on a little further #MiniBreeze spotted some animals in a field.  At first he thought they were cows but they looked a little strange.  When they came over to chat to him he found out they were ...

llamas!!  These are not native to this country but since the foot and mouth crisis that hit our country in 2001 we have seen more and more llamas in the English countryside.  They were friendly and #MiniBreeze spent some time chatting to them.

#MiniBreeze has been hanging around with Mini-Kolo too long.  On the way back he decided we should stop at the hotel for coffee.  They even gave him a biscuit to go with it.  There were lovely views of Wooton Bridge from the hotel terrace.

It was our first visit to the hotel so we had no idea what good views you got from there.

We started off back towards to abbey to pick up the car.  On the way #MiniBreeze met some new friends.

These dragons have been living on this bench at the abbey for a few weeks.  We guess somebody put them there for a purpose, they look homemade, possibly by children.  They were very friendly and #MiniBreeze will visit them again when we take him to the abbey.

More adventures to come with #MiniBreeze.  Thank you for reading.
