Today it rained, for a change!

Hello Woofers!

McDaisy & MacHolly here on the very wet Isle of Mull!

Today the rain has been pouring down, we woke up to the sound of a thousand squirrels charging across the caravan roof, well that's what Holly thought it was until we worked out it was just the rain dancing on the roof.

However, our barking did wake The Missus up and when she got out of bed, we jumped in, to give Old Two Legs a lick and a cuddle!

We went for our morning walk down the forest with OTL, but because it was raining so much, we decided to go for a walk in the forest instead of down the track!

It's dry in here!

It was fun charging about the tree trunks, jumping over the rocks, the ones the trees had pushed up out of the ground as they grew taller!

Strong trees!

OTL decided that as he couldn't get us to walk on the path, he might as well join us in the forest, so he had some fun photographing the trees and the fungi that was growing on the forest floor!

A woody game of 'Chase'
This one is called Rufous Milk Cap (we think) and it grows under conifers, which are the trees in the forest, so we reckon we are right. OTL says they are not poisonousness but taste like milk which turns to a horrible 'acrid' taste after about a minute.

So we don't touch them at all!

As it has been raining we stayed in the caravan and had a snooze for a change and OTL and TM did some reading.

This afternoon we went down to the town and TM booked up a day out on a boat searching for whales, porpoises, dolphins, basking sharks, other stuff like that!

We will be spending the day with OTL so we are going to get him to take us back to Calgary Bay again 'cos we want to have another run on the sand, and dig a bigger hole this time!

Chicken tonight and a cuddle with TM 'cos OTL is off photographing eagles tomorrow, again, let's hope he gets a good picture this time!

See you tomorrow.
