Frog and Toad

We would like to thank Frog, Mark and Becca for a great welcome at Ferry Cottage yesterday.
That is Frog........ guess which one is the toad ?
Very rarely will you see me in a photo.
Like the rare days when I see the sun come up.

I did see the sun come up yesterday morning, a very rare day indeed.

The road we take on our journey always passes Stonehenge, so how could I disappoint anyone by not putting yet another Stonehenge pic on here. (Taken from a different angle... maybe.....or maybe not).

It made a great change me nosing around someone else's cottage.
Ferry Cottage is older than Soggibottom and dates back to Tudor times.

Trying to be polite I took photo's of the river Wey from the windows.
This is Alice in Wonderland Country.
Charles Dodgson (LEWIS CARROLL) lived around here at the time of writing Alice in Wonderland.
The house he used to live in is in walking distance from the very spot you are looking at.
I wish I had taken more photo's for you but we were on a tight schedule yesterday.

We had so much to do.
Playing outside with Tilly May.

Going to the shops.

Going in and out of someone else's cat flap.
Amie would have done if she was slim enough and not got stuck.

Having lots of fuss from Kiann.

Playing Wiiiiiiiiii thing- a- me- jigs with Jake.

Fossil lessons about the things we pick up on Charmouth beach.

Enough to make you dog tired and head back home.

In time to watch the sun go down.

Thanks to everyone for all their generous comments and mail about Teddy in the last post. Forgive me if I haven't yet got around to saying how lovely it is to hear from everyone.

Soggibottom has a Gorgeous Blog Award, thank you Polina.
One of my favorite awards as it is to share and pass on.
Which I will do during the week.

Have a great weekend, Amie and I are not going to watch the sunrise in the morning !

I love coming to your bloggie.
It feels like a blog of where love is born.
I love seeing where Alice in Wonderland's story came to life in that little cottage.
Congratualtions on your award and I was happy to see Toad and Frog.
Your sunrise and sunset photos just make my heart sing.

Awww...the kids are so adorable - and look at you, Miss Curls-in-hiding! You look wonderful!

I can't remember the last time I saw the sun come up, lol. Amie sure looks like she's having fun! Sure wish I could come visit Alice country!
Emailing you in a bit, dear one - always save the best for last!

If it wasn't for the fact that I would have to take a long plane ride, I would love to come there to visit. It looks like you had a wonderful day.
