We're Here!

Hi Woofers!

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

Finally we are here and Old McTwo Legs has finally got it all set up and he is slurping on the first cold beer!

It all started on Monday morning, early, too early!

We were down the beach almost before the sun came up! You can tell that from the photo OTL took.

It's just TOO EARLY!
After a quick Wee and a Poo we all headed for home and the last bits to get stashed away, like, Ferrets and Woofers!

Now, we would have got away at nine, as planned but we had problems with the nose weight, that is, the caravan nose weight. You see The Missus was left to organise the packing, (after we had been sneaky) but when checked, the nose weight was too much, so we spent an hour re-arranging all the stuff in the caravan, trying to lighten the load!

Finally we got away but much later than we wanted to!

We were all singing songs on the way up and laughing at the rain 'cos it was making everyone slow down to forty miles an hour on the motorway! There was loads of it!

We stopped at a service station for a wee and a cup of tea, but before the tea OTL had to sort out one of the front blinds. It looks like we have had a leak or summat 'cos the screw holding the plastic frame had come loose, so OTL decided to remove the blind and get it fixed when we get back!

Having got that sorted TM said that the catch on the fridge had snapped off! What a start to the holiday!

Now, we always stop overnight at Gretna Green but this time we turned left at Gretna and headed on towards our destination, Drummore. Now OTL hadn't realised that Drummore is in fact a further one hundred miles away from Gretna! We had planned to arrive about five or six but it was such a slow journey that we had to telephone ahead to warn them we would be late!

We didn't arrive until nine thirty and by then it was pitch black! We had to stop overnight in the 'Late Arrivals' section which OTL said it was like being in the Naughty Corner!

The ferrets were taken into the caravan to sleep and Miss MacApril and Miss MacMay were so excited, not ever having been away on holiday before, started to have a play fight!

The only thing was, they did it in the Poo Pot! All the poo got thrown out and the cat litter got spread all over the place, including the caravan!

TM was not a happy bunny!

Talking of bunnies, while OTL has been putting the awning up and generally getting the caravan all sorted, Holly and I have been snoozing on the grass watching the rabbits. You see, us woofers must be kept on leads all the time and the rabbits have sussed it! The cheeky devils just sit there pulling faces at us!

Cheeky Little Bunnies!
Everywhere we went, there was a bunch of rabbits blowing raspberries!

Except of course, on the beach! 

This is a BIG Beach!
You know, we reckon that this beach could even be longer and wider that the beach in Wales!

Of course, we are let off our lead on the beach so we can have a good run!

You know what? Even Holly got her paws wet!

Wet and soggy paws!
There were a couple of shallow streams crossing the beach to the sea and OTL said that the ripples made by the water running over the sand looked like snakes!

Well, if you sort of squint and close one eye they could be snakes!
We headed back to the caravan and those rabbits were still there, chomping away on the grass and not taking any notice of us!

If I ever get off this lead!
 There was a big notice up at reception, Fish & Chip van calls Tuesday at five!

TM says it's a good idea to get some fish and chips and she even got out a bottle of Bollinger to help wash the chips down!

TM queueing and dreaming of a bottle of Bollinger!
So that's it for the moment, we are all here in the sunshine and a little wind and looking forward to getting back onto the beach tomorrow!

Bye bye for now.

  1. Looks like you are going to have a lovely time with those rabbits teasing you. Hope the fish and chips were scrummy. The Cat Woman!!

  2. Well that sounds like quite a drive. We having been watching for your blog worrying whether you had got there. We've been on holiday very near there at New England Bay Caravan site and the beaches are fantastic. It's where Hamish and I had out first swim in the sea. I loved swimming but Hamish ran out as quick as his little legs could paddle. The RSPB place at the Mull of Galloway is amazing. Dogs are allowed so we had a great time looking over the steep cliffs. The views from the cafe's outdoor seats are quite scary if you look down but the water is so clear that we could see right down to the bottom. You should visit there. We look forward to seeing OTL'S photos. Those rabbits are cheeky blighters tormenting you like that. My mum likes the idea of Bolly and chips. Why was TM reading while she was in the queue? Glad you're all there safely even if the caravan got covered in ferret poo in their excitement.
    Hope the weather stays nice..I think it might. Wags & woofs, Izzy and Hamish xx

  3. Glad to hear you've all arrived safely along with your treats. Lovely photos. Didn't it rain hard Monday morning, I thought you might change your minds and go by boat. I bet you needed a good run to stretch your legs after traveling all that way. Hmmm, now about those bunnies, how about chewing thru your lead then you can catch them. I hope you've warned the Miss's Mac page 3 girls about listening out for nargles. OTL should have told the people at the camp site that it was TM and her craft stash that made you late and then she could have spent the night in the naughty corner while the rest of you should have been allowed on the site. Looking forward to hearing about your adventures up there. Did you get some muggings of the fish and chips? Have a lovely time all and don't forget to keep your ears open for nargles. Love, licks and wags from little Arch xxxxxxxx
