Good Mourne-ing

Our friend Nigel has come to visit us all the way from England.  S yesterday we went to some mountains near us called the Mourne Mountains in County Down.

It was a lovely sunny day, it was so warm that my humans even turned colour.

There is a long stone wall in the mountains, which I think is so big you can see from space!

It's been built to keep the sheep out of the water apparently.

We climbed one of the mountains called Slieve Bernagh.  It took us hours and we had to clamber over a lot of rocks.  My humans were a bit slow, so I had to pull them along.

We had a great day and at the end we were all very tired.

We also went over a bit called Hare's Gap, but my humans wouldn't let me chase any hares.

Awfully Nice Time in Offaly

It's been a while since my last blog post.  I haven't been anywhere much recently and my humans even went away without me for a while, and I always wanted to go to New Zealnd too!  Anyway, we went down to Southern Ireland for a couple of days to visit some friends.  They live in a place called Kinnity in County Offaly.  It was beautiful spring weather and was even quite warm.  In the morning we went on a lovely long walk through the forest along a river.

When we came out of the forest we saw an old house and a stone circle.  I think it was some giants playing dice a long time ago.

Next we saw a castle and we could even have a look inside.

Soon we had to walk back, because we had to drive all the way back home.

It was so hot that I had to cool off in the river afterwards.  That was nice...
