We get chucked out, again!

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacSnowflake, Miss MacApril and Miss MacMay here on the blog again!

Last night Old Two Legs checked up on the weather forecast and it indicated some wet stuff in the morning! What happens? Bright sunshine and clear blue skies!

So much for the money they throw at the 'Super Computer' to forecast the weather! I could do better with some sea weed and a wet tail!

Yo Archie Babe, we do hope you don't get the sharp thing, cuddles we are OK with but the things that hurt are not very nice!

Today we were instructed by TM to 'Clear Off' 'cos she had some canvases to do for her next 'Master Class', well, that means we couldn't take the ferrets out at lunchtime, but we did as we were told, we're not that brave!

We went up past Stranraer and along the coast as far as we could. Sometimes on these country roads stop in a farmers yard where he is loading up the muck spreader, phew! wot a stink!

OTL spotted a tower on top of a hill, so we just had to investigate it, I mean, who plants a tower on top of a hill?

That's one big wee'ing rock!

It turns out to be a sort of memorial stone for a local dignitary, a bit like Mr Brambles Wee'ing Rock, but much bigger! 

....and now you know!
 After getting lost a few times, we ended up at Corsewall Lighthouse, which also doubles as a hotel and restaurant. Wot a spectacular place to stay when there is a storm blowing in! Especially at £110.00 – £145.00 per person per night!

Coreswall Lighthouse.
We had a walk all over the rocks and looked down into the sea. Now I don't do heights, in fact I'd rather be right down the bottom and safe on the ground!

Can we move away from the edge?
There were some Gannets diving for fish, so OTL gets out his big 'Show Off' lens and sets it up on the tripod and spends some time clicking away trying to get the Gannets diving into the sea.

There were some he got.........

....and some he missed!
and just occasionally....................

Almost two!
 Then, just for OTL a Gannet would do a 'Show Off Dive'!

Double flip with curved entry!
Now it wasn't stormy but there were some big waves crashing over the rocks, just imagine what it would be like on a Winters Storm!

Waves getting bigger!
We thought we were safe, sitting at the top but as the waves got closer we started to wonder!

Can you hear that rumbling?
 Then, without warning it went 'Splash' behind us!

That's it, we're off!
 We headed back to the car and passed a notice on the way.

More waves?

We also had some fun with this notice, like, just how big can a wave be from a ferry three miles out to sea?

Mind you, there were some big waves sloshing against the shore where we were, and there was no ferry in sight!

We were glad to be back in the car and heading off for home, back to some Doggy Scoff.

We stopped off at a Picnic Place but there was no one eating any nosh, so, we went hunting rabbit but even they had legged it!

Not even a rabbit to nibble!
So, back home, maybe we can do some mugging!

See you all tomorrow!

  1. Brilliant pictures of the Gannets!!!

  2. Yo McGodwins, I didn't get any sharp things stuck in me today, only cuddles and a stock up of all my bits and bobs that I need. I'm a happy chappie. Wow, what adventures you've had today and what superb piccies. That OTL got some good shots of them birdies diving, I wonder if they taste like chicken? Of course my favourite pics are always of you girlies. I don't do heights, I don't know how you managed to stay up there, you're very brave. That was one big weeing rock, now couldn't you dig a bit out of the bottom for Mr Brambles? I'm sure he was more deserving that the old chap who they built it for, if you ask me it's just plain greedy to have a weeing rock that size. I hope Miss Snowflake and the page three girls didn't mind staying behind, I'm not sure though that MacMay deserved to be out today after yesterday but the other 2 did. So your TM sent you's out all day and you've come back to doggie scoff? Tsk, that's not on, my mum says she's a naughty TM and you tell her. Did you get a chance to roll in any of the sniffs near the farm gates? You should have taken one back for your TM. I hope OTL gets decent scoff tonight after all his driving today. I had a visitor today, to see how I was doing after my recent grumbly tum so I got lots of cuddles and I got lots of cuddles from the vet, so I'm well cuddled today. I'm off now to get more cuddles from my mum until my boy comes home then I'll be after him for cuddles. Hope the rain stays away for you. Love and lots of licks from little (cuddly) Arch xxxxxxxx

  3. Clear off and then come back to doggy scoff, well I never! How could she be so cruel and demanding!! What beautiful pictures of the gannets diving, well done OTL, well captured you must be very pleased with these and the weather forecast I keep telling Michael to not bother to look. He looks, they get it wrong and he is surprised, last week it announced "Rain in 8 minutes", looked out of the window and it was pouring down and had been for some time!! The wave sign, very good, something to be taken notice of.
    I have had an idea, if TM needs you to clear off again just get booked into the lighthouse it only has a price for people so must be free for two dogs and looks like a nice chicken meal for just a little extra. Hope you enjoy your weekend, as I said I am off for a couple of days and Michael's download amount has been a bit of a problem so I don't want to use it all up. Hear from you all soon. xxxxxx
