Good Friday at Baboon HQ

The Easter weekend is good for us because our people don't have to work.  So, like on any proper day off we went out for breakfast.  At the Bembridge bakery Harry came across hot cross buns for the first time.

The buns were very fresh because they were made at the bakery that day.  We heard that the baker had been at work since 3 am making hot cross buns, bread and Easter cakes.  Well they certainly did a good job.  All hot cross buns are nice but these were extra special and very sticky.

After all the buns we felt a walk would be a good idea.  We drove around to the famous Toll Gate cafe at Bembridge, parked there and walked across to the Bembridge life boat station.

It was a beautiful day and Harry enjoyed feeling the sun on his fur!

We walked on past the Bembridge Coast Hotel and the Crab and Lobster pub and onto the cliff path.

Harry was surprised to have the cliffs on one side and fields on the other.  Just over near the houses there were some sheep but no lambs there yet.

Part of the cliff path is wooded and we did some climbing in the trees.

Then we came out to where we could see the sea again.  Its a very varied walk.

Usually the target of this walk is the monument you can see at the top of the Culver Down, where you can see down into Sandown Bay where Harry was a couple of weeks ago.  However, this time we didn't do the climb so we turned and got back to the Toll Gate cafe in time for lunch.  We were quite muddy!  Well yes lunch, Harry ate his toasted cheese sandwich so fast we didn't get a picture.  He was very hungry after that walking and climbing.

We are very glad we did a long walk yesterday because today the weather is bad so no sunny walk today.
