Hasn't the weather been wet pals?!
Well it certainly has on the south coast in Dorisland.
As such I haven't ventured much further than my local beach which is now fully open after the summer. We're lucky in Brighton as the council saves sections for us dogs to frequent throughout the year, you're never far from a paddling pooch!
So I thought I'd have a look back at my travels and see where I was 2 years ago when I was a mere 7 years old. St Andrews, Scotland was on my timeline and I remember such a happy visit (bar the motorhome having to be dragged out of mud by a tractor!)
St Andrews is a small university on Scotland's east coast. It's famous for it's castle, golf course and royal links. It's a very nice place to visit. The beach is sandy and clean and the town cobbled and easy to get around. I remember having a jolly good zoom on the beach and snoozing in an old pub in town. I do recall it raining a lot though but it was October!
We stayed 4 nights in St Andrew's before heading further up the coast and driving the NC500. The North Coast 500 is the road around the top of Scotland following the coast, it is quite a spectacular drive. It's also splendid for a hound as there are many, many beaches.
The only problem we had with Scotland is that it's not particularly dog friendly. I am used to travelling on all public transport and being allowed in all pubs and cafes here. We really struggled to find places to drink the further north we went. And as you know pubs are important to us hounds!
Doz, firmly down south for now x
