OTL's found some Ethereals Again!

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, MacHolly, Miss MacSnowflake and Mr McBrambles back again!

I wish I could report a super sunny day today but instead al I can say is that it has been a little, damp!

Not that it spoilt our day, it has been fun and games all day!

Old Two Legs decided to let the ferrets loose in the caravan again and they went potty, charging up and down the caravan, chasing each other and OTL and then trying to get up on the seats where MacHolly and I were sitting to watch the games!

The Missus was sitting next to us and she kept her feet up in the air 'cos Miss MacSnowflake just loves to attack TM's feet when she's not looking!

Our walk this morning was down by Loch Frisa. It's safe down there and OTL can watch out for Sea Eagles while we chase rabbits!

The rain last night had flooded the river that crosses the path, so we couldn't go as far as we would have normally. Mind you, I did suggest that MacHolly should try crossing the river but she told me to 'Go Jump In The River Myself'!

That's it, Jump!
You could see just how much water was pouring off the hills as the waterfall was much whiter than normal!

Real White Water!
OTL and TM went off shopping while MacHolly and I stayed back at the caravan doing our 'Guard Dog' duties!

Lunchtime was fun, MacHolly and I decided that we would try some Rock Climbing without our normal climbing gear, you know, ropes and climbing harnesses!

We studied the planned route, looking for all the paw holds and also planning an alternative route if we ran out of paw holds!

Then we can travers across there?
It was great fun and in the end we both stood on top of the rock looking at the view, great!

What a View an Wot a Sniff!
Going further up the path we spotted a big bull standing on top of the hill, OTL said it was 'Standing Bull' getting ready to attack anyone who came down the valley!

OTL said he looked 'Ethereal', 'O! Gawd' we both said together, 'Not Another Ethereal'!

An Ethereal Standing Bull!
OTL was quite proud of that, so he shoved an 'untreated' one in just to show off!

Big Chief Standing Bull, 'As Is'!
As we went down the path towards the car he stopped and declared that he had found another 'Ethereal' under the bushes.

And now an 'Ethereal Waterfall'!
MacHolly said we should give him a good kick up the Ethereals if he does it again!

Back in the caravan we all crashed out for a snooze 'cos all this running and jumping and climbing can wear a girl out you know!

I started off looking out of the window and just sort slipped down the cushion!

Jus' Snoozing!
We are hoping that the rain stays away tomorrow, then we can head off to the beach and maybe teach the ferrets to swim again!

See you tomorrow!

McDaisy, MacHolly, Miss MacSnowflake and Mr McBrambles!


  1. What a terrific blog, and beautiful pictures. I'm really glad that OTL managed to track down his ethereals. Loved the picture of you's rock climbing and so glad you took the time to do a health and safety check before you climbed. The view from the top is stunning, what clever, brave girls you are. Beautiful picture of you snoozing, hope it wasn't when you were on guard duty though Daisy. We have a bit of thunder here at the moment but Archie is sleeping thru it. Fingers X'd that the rain stays away so you can get down to the beach and teach MacSnowflake and Mr McBrambles to swim again. Enjoy the rest of your day, looking forward to hearing how the swimming lessons go, are you going to teach MacHolly as well? Good mugging tonight round the camp fire girls ;) xxxx

  2. Oh what a great time you are all having and although TM was having to guard her feet she did get to go shopping, where there more craft shops or did she actually buy food, hopefully lambs hearts and chicken! Another bottle of boly or whiskey, chicken fillets, oh so much you could buy. You "Jus Snoozing!" is fab all that chasing about just wore you out, the ferrets are getting a good time as well with the caravan being something new to explore. Hope they don't find a hidey hole where OTL can't find them though. We just had a heavy rain shower here and the weather map shows good weather in your direction so I am crossing my fingers and toes for you. Have a happy evening and come back with your next report real soon. xxxx xx

  3. I just posted a comment and it said error and I lost it so this is just a test. ????

  4. Having posted my test comment my previous tome is there so you get three comments from me today, can't be bad!! xxxx

  5. Hi McFurries great blog today... finally OT L got his wish and found some ethereal. Amazing pics of you rock climbing and snoozing. Hope th McFerrets get another swimming lesson in before you leave your magical place and head home. That Ethereal standing bull looks a bit scared to me, I'd send the McFerrets in first if I saw him. Well it's getting late and I need my late night p&p so I better go down and start worrying my OTL to hurry up xxx Jasper and her indoors x
