Today Ted went on a boat to see the caves that have been made along the coast. It was a small boat and went into lots of the caves. Ted likes going on boats because it is a bit cooler on the sea and the breeze cools his fur down!
Today we noticed lots of trees with numbers painted on them. We got out of the car to investigate and discovered they were cork trees! The bark is taken off every 10 years without hurting the trees and is used to make placemats, tiles, bags, shoes, fishing floats as well as corks for bottles and loads of other things! Of course, Ted wanted to climb the tree! Mrs G has brought back some of the tree bark so the nursery children can have a look.
Today Adventure Ted did lots of sightseeing around Prague. It is a really beautiful city.
He climbed up lots of steps to the top of a tower to see views of the Charles Bridge. He visited Prague Castle. Ted visited a church which is dedicated to Our Lady of Loreto! He has walked so much his paws are very sore!
Today Adventure Ted spent time at the river. He saw some of the famous bridges, a row of yellow penguins and went on a boat trip down the River Vltava. The weather was really sunny so he had to borrow a cap!
Today Adventure Ted began further travels, and flew to Prague, which is in the Czech Republic.
He had to get up really early to catch the aeroplane, but it meant that he was able to see some of the city today. There were some animals in the Old Town Square, and the donkey wanted to be stroked! Ted got to taste a local food called Trdelnik which is a kind of pastry that is cooked wrapped around a stick! Later on, he saw a very strange sculpture of a giant head! Ted is looking forward to tomorrow because he is going on a boat ride! He hopes the boys and girls at nursery are enjoying their holidays too.
Today the bears went to visit Dawyck Botanic Gardens near Peebles. There is a café there where they had a lovely lunch and then they had a walk round the gardens. They saw hundreds and thousands of snowdrops! It had snowed a little in the Scottish Borders overnight which made it look very beautiful. The bears are hoping to see some snowdrops in the woods at nursery next week!
Adventure Ted is all ready to go back to nursery. He has missed seeing all the boys and girls. Nursery resumes for all children on Wednesday 19th August. Please see below for a reminder of the new times.

We drove up to a town called Santana today. There were some very funny houses there that were triangle shaped! You could go and have a look inside and see how people used to live in them a very long time ago. We also went to see a valley which is in the middle of the island. We couldn’t believe how this man had parked his taxi!!!
