There will be no more posts in the burrow or the arena for the next ten days.
Anticant is heading for the Italian Lakes, seeking a week of lazy days, warm breezes, sunshine, scenery, boating, and scrumptious food [not to mention copious draughts of local wine].
He will be accompanied by the burrow's resident artist, lavenderblue, bearing her paintbox, in search of new scenic murals to decorate the burrow and other favourite haunts.
The stalwart boldscot/merkin will complete the trio of intrepid travellers - so expect some highly-coloured - if not lurid - accounts of our peregrinations in due course.
"Three Men in a Boat" will be nothing to it......
