Beddy visits… Norfolk

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

This week when I was driving around Norfolk I stopped off at Broads National Park.

While I was there I spotted some otters at the park, which is also home to many of these playful animals. The best way to spot one is by being quiet, hopping in a canoe and patiently waiting until one pops its head up.

Did you know an otter can hold its breath under water for 4 minutes? How long can you hold your breath for?

Beddy visits… Bath

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Salve! (That’s Hello in Latin). Today we visited Bath, home to the first ever bathhouse which was built by the Romans in 4AD. The bathhouse was built here because there is a natural underground spring that gushes out water that is hotter than your bath at home! We wonder whether the Romans had any rubber ducks in their baths?

Beddy visits… Knaresborough

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Today I passed by Mother Shipton’s Cave in Knaresborough, home to England’s oldest tourist attraction ‘The Petrifying Wall’.

Water running down the wall magically turns items into stone and is believed to have healing powers! What would you put on the wall to turn into stone?

Beddy visits… Essex

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Today Emily and I had an exciting visit to Mountifitchet Castle in Essex.

While we were there we spent some time in the prison where prisoners were kept hundreds of years ago. We also visited a toy museum in the castle grounds and saw lots of old fashioned toys from many years ago.

A long time ago there were not many toy shops, so children would have been lucky to have more than a few toys of their own.

Beddy visits…The Cotswolds

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Today, Emily and I were making our deliveries for The Daily Mail and we went to a place called the Cotswolds.

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in the west of England. The highest hill is Cleeve Hill at a huge 330 metres, which is near a place called Cheltenham.

We didn’t manage to climb the hill because we had to get back to work but maybe next time.
