It’s MARKET DAY IN GREAT YARMOUTH for Rocky!

Hi my friends! It’s your favorite traveling bull terrier! Not too long ago I showed you what it was like to visit Great Yarmouth!

Even with a bicycle it would still take forever to see it all! Me and my human’s first visit ever to the New Forest took us through the small village of Brockenhurst with a bicycle buggy and now this time…
