I have just been chatting with dadpad. How would you like to come on a cruise around New Zealand with me in January. I would love to take you there.

Sadly,I'll be saying goodbye to The Penster in a few days.She's off to Scotland to meet up with Margo.So I just HAD to take her on one more outing.We went to The Notting Hill Carnival in West London.

Checking we were in the right place....

@Barry The Mod,
Marvelous colorful photos; I've looked at them several times. Those banners in an early photo remind me of Palio scarves.
love the dancers; well, all of it.

Might be just as well Penny's now going to dour Scotland.

A critter can't take all this excitement all the time! A very understated trip it'll be Smile ..... compared with this!

Penny has apparently arrived in Scotland - under interesting circumstances not yet described. Apparently there was some question about the sanity of the recipient???

I have requested more information.

@ehBeth,
Not likely I'll have much access to A2K while I'm away, so you may have to wait for my return to hear what Her Ladyship got up to!
Thanks for the Login and password!

On requesting details - reply was that Penny would have to tell the story herself - so no clearer.

Couple of days to go!

The plot thickens Confused
The weather over here is going from bad to worse.Penny has a superb coat of fur to keep her protected from adverse conditions.Suggest you bring waterproofs,an umbrella and warm clothing.AND a camera!!!!!!!!!!

I have most of these in planning - except my umbrella appears to have taken leave of absence. I live on the driest continent - it obviously felt under-utilized! Or unappreciated.Sad

I see the weather in Scotland is just about approximating our winter.

Quick update.Margo arrived safely and collected Penny.They will both be in Devon on Friday,visiting Izzie,then they're all coming up to me in London on Sunday 'cause we're gonna see the 25th Anniversary performance of Les Miserables at the O2 in Greenwich.Can't take a decent camera (not allowed) so it'll be cell phone pics/vids only Crying or Very sad .
More later Wink .

Penny has seen a bit of Scotland and a bit of Cornwall.

We're now resting in Devon, for the next assault on London.

Pics when I get home
