P1040755Greetings loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Today, mummy thought it might be a good idea to take Bashful on a road trip. As you all know, mummy is on her anti whale diet, and as part of her fitness regime she likes to got swimming. At the moment the local pool in Wanganui is closed for maintenance, so she thought she’d travel over to Marton and visit the pool over there. She doesn’t like to swim over there because it is a 50m pool and she prefers to swim in a 25m pool.

P1040756Marton is named after the home village of Captain James Cook   Now who may  you ask who is James Cook?  Well, Cook  sailed to New Zealand and mapped the complete coastline, making only some minor errors in 1769 and is created with finding New Zealand. P1040771

    aaww – my little guy is having an awesome time! He does ❤ some water though. He likes to hide in it. Just ask him about the time we played hide and go seek and he hid in the fish tank. It took me three entire days to find him! Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
