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!
