Us Checking Out The Sniffs!

Yo Ho Woofers!

McDaisy & MacHolly here with you again!

First of all, Happy Birthday to Auntie Zoe, reached to four zero she has. Mind you, OTL reckons he would be please to reach four zero again but as Holly pointed out, it won't be long before her does but it will be a 'Double Four Zero' !

We had a super snooze last night, out like a light, as Old Two Legs says, well a slurp of the 'Water of Life' does help!

When we woke up it was cloudy but by mid morning the sun had come to see us and of course, that means a game of 'Chase the Ball' on the camp site!

We went up the Forest Trail and said 'Hello' to some sniffs we remember from two years ago and found some new ones as well. They have been messing about with the trees and have also cut a new road through the trees!

Hello Smelly, Remember Us?
 Of course, OTL was waving the camera at some flowers, Primroses I think they are called.

Highland Primrose!

Down on the sea front we had a walk along the front and said hello to the gulls and the tourist, (mainly old Wrinkly's like OTL &The Missus!)

Spot the Wrinkly's!
 To get the blog up loaded, we have to send OTL into town to a 'Free WiFi' shop, but it's not free really 'cos he has to but a cup of hot chocolate and sit an slurp that while the blog gets up loaded! 

He says that the pub has free WiFi as well but TM won't let him go in there!

In the camp site there is no phone signal, so no chance of up loading by the use of a 'Dongle'!

You know, OTL had to go for a drive up to the top of a hill to get a phone signal and while he was there he rang the Health Spar to find out how Snowflake was doing.

Well, she is having a ball, she has been chatting to the other ferret and has been let out to run around the bathroom for a bit of exercise, she even had a cuddle with the lady who runs the Spar and gave her a lick as well!

So Snowflake is having a ball and three-quarters!

Tomorrow, OTL is off to photograph the eagles again so we will spend the day with our paws up catching up on our snoozes!

Bye for now!


McDaisy & MacHolly (who has been rolling in something smelly but hasn't told OTL where it is!)

We have Arrived!

Hi The Noo Woofers!

McDaisy & MacHolly here in 'Sunny' Tobermory!

We left Gretna at around seven in the morning, it was HARD!

I mean, we had to wake Old Two Legs up and kick The Missus out of bed very early in the morning, about five thirty I think it was!

Still, were up and rolling on time. Off we set and it was about twenty miles down the road that OTL suddenly noticed that he hadn't got a full tank of fuel, he had forgotten to fill up the night before!

That was it, we were desperately searching the sat nav thing to find a fuel stop that he could get the car and caravan in without causing too much trouble!

We finally found a garage in Lockerbie and only just made it 'cos the warning light on the dashboard was telling us the car was running on fumes only!

After yesterday boring ride, Holly and I had decided that we would make sure we got a 'Wee Break' every couple of hours or so and even OTL wasn't going to prevent us! You should see us when we start to whine and whimper and woof and give OTL the old 'Poor Me' look!

We got our 'Wee Breaks'!

After passing Stirling we even got OTL to lower the window so we could do some 'Speed Sniffin'!

That was great fun. Especially when we started to woof at the sheep and lambs who were trying to fall asleep alongside the road!

We went down Glen Coe and passed loads of mountains, all of which Holly says she could climb with no trouble!

Our first ferry ride was boring, I mean, we couldn't even see the water until we got off the boat!

The second ferry looked like it was going to be the same but before we got on the boat, we met up with a local who said he was called 'Wee Scruff Bag', well that's what everyone called him in the village!

He said he has seen loads of Dolphins in the bay and once he had seen an Orca wot got lost!

We thought he was trying to impress us 'cos nothing much really happened in his village!

We said goodbye and off we went on to Isle of Mull. It looked mostly the same as we had last seen it but it was good to be back. OTL planted the caravan and got everything up. You know, awning and the safety strap to stop the wind blowing the awning away! The Tibetan Prayer flags were fluttering in the wind, Holly says they are prayer for sunshine and super sniffs!

We went down to the High Street to do some late shopping and we spotted Sid The Seagull from the last time we were here. He was doing his favourite trick of mugging some chips from the people who had just got their dinner from the chip van!

Sid The Scrounge is still here!

It's nice to know that there hasn't been too many changes!

Tomorrow we hope for a run in the woods to see if the rabbits are still there, now that will be fun!

See you tomorrow!
