Summer Part 2

So, the rest of the summer hols kick in tonight. 

Off for 2 weeks! 

Woo hoo!

We will be taking in the usual spot of camping at our usual place.   We are nothing if not predictable, but we really love going back to the same site and village each year, it is like having a holiday home on the cheap.

The rest of the time will be around our home town, a few days out, a few lunch dates for Mrs RC and myself, a few dog walks together etc.  Oh, my birthday also falls in this break (totally planned, working on my birthday is gains my religion).

Oh, before I go, more animal related news.  You might remember our fish, Lonesome George, Toffee Penny and Nemo?  Well Nemo and Toffee Penny have started to lay eggs and it looks like George is actually a male and is doing what comes naturally is such a situation.  Mrs RC has collected some of the eggs to see if they hatch.  Any that hatch in the pond are likely to get eaten, so we might end up with a second pond for a while....

I will be dropping in here from time to time, hopefully posting a few photos.  In the mean time, have a great summer!

Happy holiday! And happy early birthday! Two weeks off sounds heavenly. And to spend it camping sounds even better. I've been fantasizing about some time away with no access to phone or internet or email.
So post lotsa pics please. I'll have to live vicariously through you for a while.

We usually return to fave camping spots too. New places are fun to explore, but when you find a good one, it's good to stick with it! Have fun!

I'm glad the fish threesome is getting along so swimmingly(?). I look forward to holiday photos.

Have a great break. Camping and a bit of a staycation can charge up the batteries nicely. I hope you show us the fish eggs, they must be really tiny. And Birthday wishes too.... have a good one.

Happy Holiday! I hope that camping goes well and the weather cooperates. Enjoy the time off away from the daily drag.
And Happy Birthday, old man!

I can't *really* think of what comes naturally to a fish ;)

It all sounds blissfully wonderful! Hope you enjoy every moment.

I'm looking forward to news of your growing fish pond!
