Greetings my roving pals.
Well isn't the weather delightful pals, we have a summer at long last.

I hope you're all keeping cool though.

As the sunshine continued this month I asked my humans if we could take the van to Woolacombe in Devon. I'd never been and had heard rumours of an amazing beach. Being well trained they agreed and off we pootled on the 5 hour drive south westerly.

Wooly, as I renamed it quickly, turned out to be a fabulously dog friendly place to visit.
The rumours were correct and the 3 mile beach is one of the nicest and cleanest I have ever visited. It is also very dog friendly throughout the year, something quite unusual these days.
We pitched the van at Woolacombe Sands holiday park. It boasted a shady dog walk and dog friendly club house.
Again a rarity in the UK and I was most impressed with the nightly bingo.

Wooly town has several dog friendly pubs and cafes and there is a nice pet shop (which I frequented for fresh treats) Local buses and taxis accept dogs and there are many countryside walks.
Honestly pals, I couldn't rate it high enough.
Okay we had incredible weather and it may be a bit quiet in the rain but I wanted to stay.

So if you fancy joining me and the thousands of beach loving hounds, grab your surf board and head to Woolacombe!
