Hi again dog pals,
On day two of our Suffolk adventure, Human Mum (Hum) said she wanted to go to a place called Southwold.
She remembered it as a lovely pretty seaside town – very smart and quintessentially English, she said. Her late husband had taken her there and she reminisced about the pretty beach huts, their lovely pier with shops selling all the sort of arty stuff hum likes and the Adnam’s brewery that her hubby enjoyed.
Well maybe it is super-duper for human-folk but I found it not quite so great for us four-legged people.
Firstly there are restrictions on the main beach from May to September so we couldn’t get to see the colourful beach huts or play on the beach.
Then we were told the Lord Nelson pub was dog friendly BUT when Hum asked if I could have my water bowl filled it was treated as a most bizarre request and we were told there were water bowls outside the door for dogs. I mean I even take my own little bowl with me ‘cos I don’t like drinking communal water! I know that is fussy but I know I am not alone in this.
Maybe for once Hum just hadn’t done her research as well as usual as we met a couple later at the Bell Inn in Walberswick who said there was a dog friendly little bit of beach and other places including the Swan Hotel were very dog friendly hut Hey – we went to Walberswick instead and that was fab!
Will tell you the joys of Walberswick later!
