Star Gazing!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here!

Another busy day, the ferrets have been helping The Missus to clear out her 'Card Storage Room', well to be honest, they have been reinstalling the squeaky balls behind the boxes so that every time she shoves the box back on the shelf there is a big squeak which makes her jump 'cos she thinks a ferret is behind the box!

We were a little late getting out this morning and the sky was beginning to brighten up. We spotted Venus up in the sky and as the sky was getting lighter all the other stars were disappearing, but Venus was still shining bright in the sky!

Look! Right in the middle!
 OK, it was there but doesn't stand out much. So, Old Two Legs had a twiddle with the controls on the camera and zoomed in so that it looks like this!

OK, Just a little camera shake!
 You can see that the sun was creeping up in the sky but while we were waiting the sky started to glow. In the end we got fed up with waiting so off we went, back home!

Well, it looks pretty
 At lunchtime we headed off to the sea shore but this time we took the new way around the back of the fort. Of course the fort is on a hill and Holly suggested we race each other to the top. Well, I took one look and decided that I would be ahead of Holly in no time but I may be missing new sniffs on the way up!

So I didn't!

Come on, race you to the top!
 Just for a change, we dropped down onto the beach, the sniffs were there but full of sea stuff and the rubbish that flows down from the docks!

Well, it's a sniff but not as you would like it!
 I think that we will be kept off the beach and only go swimming when we got to Scotland.

If we are lucky enough, we plan to spend our Spring and Summer holidays back on the Mull of Kintyre again. Loads of sand beach and the water isn't deep so that means even Holly can go in for a paddle!

Do you realise that in six days the nights will be getting shorter and the days longer and summer will be on its way!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.
