Greetings my roving pals.
This month my adventures took me on a mini holibobs to Rye in East Sussex.
As it was school holidays and the local campsite was charging a stonking £75 a night for a motorhome pitch, we 'wild' camped at a couple of pubs.
Our first night was in the car park of the White Hart in Netherfield and I loved it. A lovely dog friendly pub with a beautiful countryside view and bunnies everywhere.
Our second was further towards Romney Marsh and called the Woolpack Inn, wooden beams and all.
Rye describes itself as a 'fortified hilltop town' and it certainly is hilly! The town used to be coastal but now the harbour and fishing fleet sits a mile or so inland. It has cobbled streets and timbered buildings, it's very, very pretty. Sadly it poured with rain whilst we were there but fear not pals, it's ludicrously dog friendly!
It seemed harder to find a pub, café or ye olde shoppe that didn't allow dogs in.... I went everywhere. And so it seemed did fellow travelling dogs. Every hotel door I saw had a dog organising it's anorak and day pack for a mooch around town. It's a 5 paw rating for Rye!
I wanted to go further on to Camber Sands or Dungeness but the humans had been loads before. Honestly, you'd think it was about them? Never mind, I will get them trained one day.
So long pals and happy travelling, however near or far.
