Days out at Baboon HQ

We have been a bit quiet at Baboon HQ while our people have been getting on with work stuff and all that.  However, lately we have had a couple of days out.  Last Sunday Harry went looking for spring flowers.  As you know our spring flowers arrived before Christmas and we have missed taking pictures of crocuses on the island, although they are still alive and well on the mainland.

Harry set off, with our people to walk to Fishbourne.  A nice village where the car ferry comes in.

First he found snowdrops,

along with a morning glory flower.

Further on he found little daffodils with a hyacinth.

Nearer to Fishbourne we found a different type of snowdrops.

Fishbourne Green is always a haven for daffodils at this time of year.

Now what are these?  They are pink and Harry thought they were pretty but we do not know what they are.

Primroses, outside the Fishbourne Inn.

Then there were these other flowers outside the Fishbourne Inn.  We don't know what they are either.

Yes, of course Harry and our people felt the need for coffee in the Fishbourne Inn.  Yes, as we have said, Harry is not Mini-Kolo and he doesn't have a caffeine addiction!  He is always interested in the treats that come with the coffee.  This one was particularly nice, not that our people know this because Harry polished them off!!

Ah now, on Friday my person took a day off work because they had worked some Saturdays for an open day.  What is the most important thing to do to start a good day off?  Answer, breakfast out!  This time we went to French Franks, which is near home, because my person had an appointment at 9.30 (new hair cut)!!  Harry loves croissants so that is what he had.

Well and that was not all he did.  At lunchtime he went to one of our favourite places in Ryde, Olivos.  Look who he met!!  Harry had not met Henry before so he was very excited.  They had pasta.  Henry had ham in his, but Harry doesn't eat meat so he had it without ham.  It was very nice with broccoli and mushrooms in a creamy sauce!!

After that Harry came home and napped for a bit as he was tired, but in the evening he went out for a mezze at very nice place in Ryde, called Ada, but he didn't get pictures!!  Harry ate every meal out on Friday.  Wow!!


  1. Woohoo - looks like a great time. Pretty flowers too - we still have snow on the ground.
