Old Rockers and The Port!

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacSnowflake, Mr MacBrambles, Miss MacApril and Miss MacMay back here Again!

Today has been a 'Lazy Day' , a sort of 'Finish the Little Stuff'' type of day.

Old Two Legs over slept 'cos we didn't wake him up. The ferrets had a good night and left the Poo Pot Kicking until every one was awake and up out of bed!

MacApril and MacMay are playing a game with OTL, instead of using the Poo Pot for pooing, they are using it as an arena in which to do their play fighting. The poo is done down the other end of the cage, on the floor!

OTL is trying a new trick, take out the poo pot and just leave a shovel full of cat litter on the floor, let's see what they make of that!

It was super on the beach, the tide was well out and we didn't even get a sniff of water!

We all had a good time and OTL managed to get all his chores done and the ferrets all cleaned and stored out in the awning to get some fresh air and sunshine!

Holly Dog on Guard!
After lunch we headed off to investigate the local villages and ports. We enjoyed Portpatrick and The Missus and OTL even stopped for a bite to eat and a cool drink, Holly and I got to sit in the shade and we even got served some cool water in a drinking bowl!

We explored the viewing sites and at one we could even see Northern Ireland on the horizon. Holly and I didn't want to stay there 'cos it looked a long way down to the sea!

Yeah, seen it now let's go!
There was one place that was making a terrific Booming sound. OTL said it was the sea rushing up the gap and crashing on the end wall.

We didn't like that and quickly passed by!

Boom! Boom!
There were some fishermen on the rocks but we couldn't see how they would get any fish up the rocks!

Fishing for a Fishy for a Little Dishy!
We then headed off to the harbour or as the locals call it, 'The Port'. It was very clean and pretty!

The Port
 There was a Two Legs sitting on a bench doing some water colour painting, of course, TM just had to go up and tell her how she was an artist and would use different colours and some glitter and Brusho Inks and the latest Sweet Poppy Stencil!

We were quite embarrassed 'cos we liked the painting and it looked dead good!

Two Artists and Us!
 Looking out to sea there was a flag pole and an anchor but no ship! Very strange!

Ships Away!
 Around the corner at the back of The Port, we spotted an arch over a water outlet, it could have been a stream but the arch and the gull on the other side made it look 'Interesting'!

OTL being an Artist!
We had fun laughing at the people walking around the Port, there were some motorcyclist on whacking big motorbikes. Trouble was, they were all well past retiring age!

OTL said they were 'Old Rockers', Holly said that they should all stick to rocking chairs!

Back home to grumble at the rabbits until tomorrow!

Almost forgot, Izzy, we are at the Caravan Club New England Bay site, so, can you remember where the best sniffs are?

See you tomorrow!


Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacSnowflake, Mr MacBrambles, Miss MacApril and Miss MacMay.


  1. Yo Macmaties, so glad you're all enjoying yourselves. Glad you've got some sun up there cos we haven't got any down here. What lovely photos today, pleased to see your TM in some. I bet your TM could persuade that lady to put some glitter on her painting. Them Mac page 3 girls are very untidy kicking their poo pot around, I hope the approve of the cat litter on the floor or will they just kick it out? Well done MacHolly for doing guard duty with the ferrets. You've been to some lovely places today. I don't do heights. Good to see MacOTL is still doing his housework duties. Give them bunnies a good growling. Hope you're getting enough treats up there. Have a lovely evening all you MacGodwins. Love, licks and Mac wags from little Arch xxxxxxxx

  2. Sue says sorry she has not been on but this internet lark has used all our quota up She like TM will catch up once we are back on the main land. Hope you are all having a spiffing time up there and love the pictures OTL you did well. (sorry Daisy, don't tell him that) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  3. Portpatrick looks very pretty but I'm not sure about the Boom Boom bit. That Anchor and flag poles a bit strange. Hamish reckons they'd be a few good sniff up that pole but I think that's because he's a boy and likes to wee up things. My mum says that another artist called Glenda lives at Portpatrick and that TM must be going to one of her splashing paint classes.
    I thought you might be at New England Bay as I recognised the fish and chip van. There are some good sniffs behind where the van parks but we liked the grassy bit between the caravans and the beach. Lots of good sniffs there! But I loved swimming in the sea best. We were going to visit there for a weekend but Dad broke his wrist and mum has a bad back so they Can't hitch up the caravan and dad had paid for a year's caravan club WiFi too. Oops! Now he knows not to ride his cycle to work in the rain. Mum's not happy either as she wanted to do a splashing paint class too!
    I enjoyed seeing the photo of the ferrets in their cages.Holly looks like a good guard dog. I really like OTL'S photos of the views and of you two but why did he cut TM'S head off. Poor TM!
    Have to go to bed now and I don't want to miss my tooth chew.
    Have lots of fun. Hopefully we'll have another sunny day tomorrow. Woofs & wags from Izzy & Hamish xx

  4. Thanks Izzy! We'll be hunting out the sniffs! Oh, by the way, chopping off TM's head was 'By Request' 'cos TM no longer has those long golden curls and she gets depressed when she sees a photo of herself! So much for growing old gracefully!
