What you've been doing

Cerne Abbas is a lovely little village in the county of Dorset. It is famed for the image of a giant carved into the side of a hill North-East of the village - it's very impressive indeed ! The village is very quaint, and has a couple of good pubs, and is a good base if you want to go walking or exploring the surrounding areas.

Around 15 miles south of Cerne Abbas is the Hardy Monument, named after Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy (flag captain on HMS Victory), rather than after Thomas Hardy the poet/author who is famous in these parts. From the Monument you are meant to have commanding views of the countryside and the sea, but when we went the whole area was shrouded in mist and we couldn't see a thing. I'm sure it'd be lovely though.

After a quick visit to Dorset, Hudson was dispatched to Atlanta to continue his journey with Jim.
