Sydney and Me on the train!
Well on Tuesday we did indeed go to Topsham. We met several people who we have met before and had a really good time. We all love Topsham! In the afternoon we had lunch at Countess Weare and then took a walk along the canal and went to the Waterfront at Exeter Quay. It was really good and afterwards went to the pub (Yes! Another pub!!!) at Double Locks and had a coffee (yes! I promise you my parrents just had 2 coffees!). Wednesday we went to Torquay and Paignton on the train. Sydney and I love the train – there are loads of people who love to see us and we chatted all the way there! At Paignton we shared our Parrents Tuna Mayo Jacket Potato – it was scrumptious!!!. On Thursday we went to see Tony and Helen and, of course, the ducks! The Ducks looked thin but we are sure Tony will have them fattened up by Christmas (which brings me on to Phoebe’s Feathers. According to our spy at home she is doing very well with her feathers!). Friday was our day at Exmouth where we went to see some more old friends. They have pedestrianised the area outside Exmouth Market which looks really nice but the locals don’t like it cos they have lost parking spaces. We had a good time at Exmouth and even went to see the 2 Hahn’s Macaws who were responsible for our parrents getting Oscar last September. Unfortunately they weren’t there so our parrents have promised to take us there when we come back in May! On Saturday it rained so our parrents went to Trago Mills. Now we’re completely with Adam here – we hate Trago Mills so much that we persuaded our parrents to let us stay in our travel cage in the car for a siesta. Our parrents were really missing Phoebe and the other Fids so they bought some new toys for them. In the afternoon it was nice and sunny so we went back to Teignmouth. It was funny at Teignmouth because Sydney kept getting blown off our parrent’s shoulder (well it’s much harder to stay on a shoulder than a finger in the wind!!!). We went back to the pub on the beach and founds some Cuttlefish bone for the Fids in the aviaries back home who are busy laying eggs and feeding Daffy (the Cockatiel chick)!!! Well today is Sunday and we were home in time for lunch! Now all that remains is for us to tell all the other Fids about our time away!
