Jungle Path to Morroch Bay

Jungle Path to Morroch Bay

A new day, new adventures still roasting hot. I took my time going down to the village today much to mums annoyance. I’m not daft, got to save my energy in this heat. Poppys have learned that if we go out in the morning with rucksack it means long walks. As we were crossing the promenade I hears noises coming from the beach, Horses! First cows on beach in Barra now horses at Portpatrick! Wrong, wrong, wrong…..grrrrrrrrrrrr.
Mum wanted to go into a gallery on the pier so me and dad hung about outside while she went looking for something to buy.
That us mum lets go! At the end of the village I was let off leash. Where we going? Up the steps? Up we went.
The path took us along the cliffs, some of the pathway was made of bridges.

As the path opened up I realised I have been here before, look mum it’s Dunskey Castle, the castle I was at when I was a pup. The gates closed but I’m sure I got in the last time.

Sure enough I found a way into the castle. Poppys are good at finding ways in.

I explored it from top to bottom, mum was worried when I looked out the window looking for her, Its OK mum I wont Jump. Where to next.

We wanted to find a nice beach for picnics, so we followed the coast. This was not an easy task. It was a jungle. I fought my way through the jungle, some times I couldn’t even see the sky. Down glens, over rivers, up cliffs, always through jungle. After an age we managed to get out. Look mum a beach, is that where we are going?

Onwards we went and the giant ferns covered us again this time with jaggy brambles. On we went till mum said enough was enough. We turned tail and fought our way back to the spot where we could see the beach. This is as good a spot as any for lunch.

Picnics was even better than yesterdays. Not only ham and muffins but cheese too, YUM. We gathered our strength for the fight though the jungle back to camp.

At the castle we took a short cut through Castle Bay Holliday Park. I had to be on leash, grrrr When we got out we sat in the shade to get our breaths back. Suddenly there were big bangs and clatters from the road. Don’t worry I’ll get it, “NO POPPY” shouted mum, too late I was off as chasing away the big nasty machines. When I got back mum was not well pleased. I was put back on leash. I looked at her puzzled. How come leash? Did I not save you? I couldn’t have chased them away if I was on leash. As we went back to camp we passed the Galloway, looks good for dinner? No?
