Re: Pastures New
Well I came, I saw, and (in the absence of Pete and Pudweena) I ate Pete's cake! Yum, yum. Thank you Pudweena! P.S. We couldn't gobble it all between us so there is a sizeable portion left for latecomers.

Poole in the distance
Although Poole and 'civilisation' is not far away, if you turn your back and walk a few yards you can be completely lost in Arne's natural world!
