Safe In Salisbury

Hi mum,

Lechyd da i chwi nawr ac yn oes oesoedd!!!

That's Welsh for "Good health to you now and forever." Guess where I am??

After Devon we drove to Salisbury.

At Salisbury we visited a Rare Breeds Farm where I met another cousin.

More Roman ruins in England.

We also visited the ruins of another castle

Today we visited a little village on the coast of Wales called Portmeirion. Uncle BG was very excited as this is the site of one of his favourite childhood shows, The Prisoner.

Its a very pretty village.

A view from a window in Portmeirion.

By the house of "The Prisoner" (now a shop).

"I am not a number. I am a man! Eerrrr, pig!"

Da Boch chi (Goodbye)

Love Percy.

Not The Piglet.

Hi Mum,

There is so much to see here in England, I can barely keep up with my postcards!

We spent a day in Bath, that's the name of the city. Its called Bath because they are the only natural hot springs in England. The Romans built a big bathing resort there as they thought that the water was able to cure many ills.

The currant city of Bath is actually built over the ruins of the Roman city.

But you can still see much of it by going underground and the baths have been partially restored.

We then went to Devon and stayed a couple of nights at a farm. The country roads are very narrow and there are tall bushes called hedgerows along either side.

The closer we got to the farm the narrower they got until there was only room for one car and if a car came the other way then someone had to back up! Fortunately that didn't happen much.

We had dinner at a town called Lyme Regis. The roads are very narrow there too and there are traffic lights in case a car is coming the other way.

But the bus drivers still managed to get double decker buses through the narrow streets.

The next day at the farm we went for a walk and caught up with some cousins of mine.

After we went to River Cottage Headquarters. We had a tour of the yummy looking vegetables and then lunch.

Like the size of this garden.

I am not a rabbit!

After lunch I was introduced to the chef and he tried to cook me! Luckily the were only joking but I wasn't impressed.


Eat more chicken less pork!!!!!!

Percy's Been Everywhere

Hi Mum,

It's been a while since I was last able to get to a computer, but all is well and I am having lots of fun.

I have been in castles and river tours and have been in or travelled through 5 countries.

Here I am at the Tower of London. Uncle BG is holding my trotters for me as I was afraid I was going to fall off the wall! This is a scary place all made of stone and where lots of people lost their heads!

This photo is of the view from our motel window in Gent, Belgium.

I kept the big bed warm while Aunty and Uncle BG were out celebrating a wedding all night.

These 2 pictures were taken in a very old castle in Gent.

Aunty BG thought you would like this picture of a baby Sydney Harbour Bridge in Holland.

Having a refreshing drink.

We visited a museum in Holland where there were some very old things from when the Romans lived there.

The view from our motel window in Germany. Were we were staying in on the border of Holland and Germany and so we crossed over between two countries lots of time while we were there.

Thats' it for now. Tomorrow morning we fly back to England where we are going to drive around the country side and visit some farms. That should be fun. I might get to meet some English relatives!



Dear Percy,

Its wonderful to hear from you again and the photos are just wonderful. Sounds like your having such a great time and as your going to so many places, you must behaving yourself.

Love the ear look in the photo with your "refreshing drink" is that how pigs wear their ears over there?? lol

Keep enjoying your holiday.

Hello From Greenwich

Hi Mum,

Yesterday we went and saw some of the sights in Greenwich.

Here I am at the Thames Barrier.

Bit closer so you can read.

With Admiral Nelson.

Sampling London's famous Pie & Mash. The green stuff is called Liquour and is made with parsley.

Love Percy.

Dear Percy,

Oh my goodness your in the arms of Admiral Nelson. Boy you are one lucky piglet. Hhmm I hope you didn't make a pig of yourself in that pie and mash.

Love Mum.

Dear Mum......

Hi Mum,

I am finally in London after a very long flight. Fortunately I slept most of the way, so I am ready for some adventures now.

Here are some photos from my trip.

Waiting at the Melbourne International Airport having a beer with Uncle BG.

Look! We are above the clouds!

Filling in time at Bangkok Airport.

Love Percy.

Dear Percy,

My goodness how exciting for you. I am so glad you all reached England safely. You look so smart in the tree, very different from our Australian trees.

Glad you got a window seat on the plane too.

keep having fun.

Love mum.
